Hello guys. I recently built my first pc and I was wondering if I should screw my motherboard into every standoff. My motherboard is the b450 tomahawk. My case is the corsair obsidian 750d airflow edition. I have screwed every screw apart from the middle one because there's one screw from my case that takes its place. Should I do something about it or no? Thanks in advance.

I don't think that it should affect your system in any manner but should screw the centre it will be better. Anyways it is OK for you this way.

Can you show any photos illustrating your issue?

Generally - yes.
Every standoff place in your motherboard needs to have corresponding standoff and screw.

It's a bit dark I know. I don't know if you can see it but there's a black screw from my case sticking through that hole and as a result I can't screw a standoff there. Should I leave it as it is?
