Hello,

Today i was building my pc that i was mainly going to put linux on it and use it as a second pc
Anyways i didn't have any screws to screw the motherboard so i superglued it
I bit of glue is around the place where the screws are but only a little that can't even be seen has touched the mobo on the corners it hasn't run down it or anything like that
Will this harm the board I heard that super-glue is non conductive

No, the only issue is if it blocked screw holes or something. Not the best of ideas though as you may break the board trying to remove it. A desktop build without a case would be preferable until you get some screws.

When you do need to remove it, carefully apply acetone (fingernail polish remover type acetone) with a Q tip in small amounts and then insure it is totally dry.
 
I think it will be fine.
We use superglue where I work to hold circuit boards in place.
One issue that may happen...is that many times those standoffs are used as grounds and superglueing it may not allow for a good ground....so that's something to keep in mind.
