finally starting to assemble everything. Zalman s2 case. no idea why the idiots dont install ALL the mobo risers FOR THE CUSTOMER....

got the three "user cosutomizable risers" installed. ONLY one screws in flush to the metal. Others have a gap i can get a finger nail in.

Is it safe to use as is like that.. or am i going to need to play "monkey with a wrench" to tighten them down further? I think its just a case of bad hole drilling as the good hole has a small dip around it, and the bad ones dont

personally, I would tighten them... but if its that close and you cant tighten any more, it will be just fine. They dont put them in , because maybe you are putting an ITX board in or an ATX or etc etc... diff holes

I know a few people that like big cases, with little boards.. especially if they are doing a lot of custom water cooling.

Its stupid not to put them in, at the factory.

Its ok, "every third lugbolt on your car is user customizable and left in a bag in the glove compartment"

lol but a wheel has 1 set of holes and only fits one way... the problem is, you bought a cheaper case :)

You get what you pay for... in my Be quiet 800 the risers go in like butter, but in a DIYPC case I won, not only were they hard to get in.. they were not straight! (PLUS... you couldnt even get the PSU in the case without cutting part of the case). Absolute junk.. had to throw it away and order a better case.

it never ends for me on this project.

risers barely lined up right with the mobo holes, one riser snapped off, one i had to put in,

the routing holes in the case arent spaced right, so im buying cable extenders so i can get the mobo properly connected.

literally end up with the 8 pin connecter being an INCH too SHORT. it can TOUCH the 8 pin socket but not bend to insert.

This was another issue with that diypc case.. So poorly designed that the cables didn't reach! Junk.

Risers are almost never in the case, I have not bought a case in 20 years that they were installed first. They always come in a little package with the rest of the mounting hardware.
