The motherboard tray is labeled with the holes where you need to screw in the stand-offs for the motherboard. Once the stand-offs are installed, simply screw in screws into the holes that have standoffs. At this point you are ready to install the PCI cards by removing the screw and slot cover from the appropriate PCI slot and inserting the card.
