Hi there,

Im just wondering if these motherboard screws are replaceable on the back?
If so would anyone know where I can source one from or even the name of them?



Many thanks in advance.

Those appear to be M.2 standoffs. The are used to keep the M.2 level with the slot. You move them from hole to hole depending on the length of the M.2 drive you have.

Thanks for your reply. How do I remove them? Is there a screw on the back?
If you could point me in the right direction to the screw I would be very much aporeicative. I can;t seem to find the high ones anywhere.

It should unscrew to the left, anti clowise, counterclockwise.


There really shouldn't be a reason you need to remove it unless you need it for a shorter M.2 drive.
Do I need to apply a bit of brute force? The screw has sheared off inside the bigger screw
So I cant hold my M.2 Drive in place, which is why I think my computer isn't posting sometimes.

It can take a little force, but it shouldnt be all that much. The last set of standoffs may be permanently attached since that mobo does come with a heat spreader for the M.2 drives, I don't know

Thanks for your reply.

It seems the screw is fastened extremely tightly. Shall I just use a bit more pressure? I dont want to break anything,
