Hi I have an atx mid tower case . I have no idea what brand it is .

I found that there is no standoff inside my case

I want to know what standoff should I install in order to install my motherboard

I found a lot of sizes but I don't know which one to put

Motherboard : ASUS H61M-E LGA 1155 Micro Atx

GIGABYTE H61M DS2 LGA 1155 Micro ATX

One of these motherboards will be installed in my case

What is the right standoff for these ? Thank you
 
I have come across cases in the past that have no standoffs but in stead raised locations for mounting screws. Height of the standoffs is to align the I/O ports correctly with the I/O shield so impossible for us to guess which is right.
Maybe it is time to get a new case which would include standoffs.

A case will normally come with standoffs and appropriate mounting screws.
I imagine you acquired a used case without them.

Post a pic of your case; perhaps someone can recognize it.
Post a pic of the motherboard mounting area.
Perhaps there are already standoffs mounted, or there might be raised areas into which accept mounting screws.

Posts and screws are mostly standard,
Take the case to a shop and they likely will sell you what you need.
