Case Prep

Remove all panels, slots, and additional openings on your case (such as your USB, sound, and COM ports). Be careful, some cases have sharp edges and can cut you. Use your needle nose pliers to remove the metal pieces.

Mark the case on the inside where you will install the mounting riser pins. This can be done with a marker by placing the board in the case and marking where the mounting riser pins will go through the screw holes on the board. I used red stickers so you can better see what I mean.

Install the mounting riser pins in your pre-marked holes. You install them by turning them to the right. Make sure you screw them in completely, that way the board will sit flat.
