Hi, I'm replacing the motherboard in my PC and found I need another 2 posts between the case and the motherboard. The posts appear to be brass, 7mm body and 4mm thread. I'm in Wellington city.
Thanks in advance.
I've got some if you want. I'd also imagine if you popped into any nearby computer store, they'd just give you a couple free.
But you also don't need to have posts at every connection point for the motherboard. You can leave them out. Only issue is if inserting cards/RAM etc and you're pressing down and it's unsupported you could stress the board and cause micro stress fractures i.e. bad.
Thanks, Shaun. I've replied to your message and accepted. I tried my friendly computer store (heaps bought over the years) and they didn't have any. Nor did their workshop/ service centre.
Weird. I find that a bit hard to believe. Any place that does any work on computers I'd imagine would have a collection of all screws etc.
Maybe if they assemble PCs they just use what's provided and give all the extras to the customer.
You usually get a few extra when putting together a PC. I've got about 30 extras lying here from the I dunno the last 5-10 PC I've put together over the years.
Anyway no problem, I'll pop a couple off to you.
