So nobody told me the most frustrating part about building a PC was the goddamn stand-off screws. I don't know if it had to do with whether the case I got was defective or the HAF 932 is just a bitch to get these things in there.
There were a few metal shavings in the case that should have been an alarm, but I put it in the back of mind as I started to just go for it. Lo and behold getting these brass little thumbscrews in the case has been a fucking nightmare. They're uneven, and thanks to the IO panel a complete shitshow trying to shove my motherboard in place.
My brother who's trying to help, god bless him, started poking around with a screwdriver, the top left corner hole now won't grab hold of a stand off screw...
I fear that act destroyed whatever little threading was in the hole, please tell me I'm full of shit and just looking for a scapegoat.
Does anybody have any tips on these fucking things? What am I doing wrong? Am I being too fucking careful?
