Mobo MSI B450 A PRO MAX 

Case : NZXT 340s Elite 

I got a new mobo the other days and when i tried to install it , the screws in the picture below ( not my mobo but same screws layout ) just wont screw in , they just fall and i just cant get them tight or anything but the rest screws do go in 

Also my mobos manual is pretty crappy . Can i just leave it as is since the mobo doesnt seem to move when i push it around , am i doing sth wrong ?

Why don't they go in?

Are there standoffs there? Are they stripped?

Or is the screw not reaching the standoff?

In that case your motherboard may not be laying flat properly.

It's fine, as long as the motherboard stays in your case it doesn't really matter.

Also if the cooler isn't weighing a ton, as one upper screw is also bad, it seems.

 

But yeah, replaciong standoffs is a good idea.

... but I'm no expert

Yeah, and make sure that the center standoff is in properly because that one is usually a stub and not a screw hole.

If that one's not in then you won't be able to screw in other holes without bending the motherboard and breaking it.
