I installed my motherboard but my case didn't come with any washers. I just screwed the screws straight in, is this ok?

Hi mozzer11...

So long as you used standoffs, you should be fine.

Hi
Yea I used standoffs, or should I say A standoff as there is only one hole. The rest of the holes are raised in the case. Do they act as standoffs? They're part of the case.

If the holes are raised on the backing plate, they will be standard ones that you find on 99.9% of all ATX/microATX motherboards and they do act as standoffs.
