You know. Those little screws/nuts/bolts between your motherboard and case.

I'm not English so my vocabulary lets me down sometimes.

I verified now that I had a name - and they are indeed called risers/spacers.

Thanks, you are quite helpful today.

QFT!

I refer to them as standoffs. But I've heard them called risers/spacers as well.

I call them stand offs to to provent your monthboard from shorting out on the case. I thought those little plastic things where spacers, you no longer get them with your cases anymore however.

Oh, how many times haven't I seen people doing their first build, and they forget those. Then they ask "Waah! Do you know why my PC won't work? it smelt burnt when I turned it on." "Did you remember to put in the spacers?" "Spacers, what's that?" "Them little metal things that separate your case from the mainboard" "Uhm, no. I didn't put in those" :bash:
