    Default Gbyte MB and case

    Hello: I just received a ga-ep35-ds3r mb from e-bay. This is my first build.
    The mb has 7 holes for standoffs, 2 on top and bottom, and 3 in the middle of the board. The rightmost hole in the middle has no corresponding hole on the case. I had read in forums that this particular board is smaller than standard ATX boards--so is it normal for this rightmost hole to go unsupported? Will the other 6 be enough? I don't know what I'd do if the answer were no, but I'd like to get some feedback on this matter. The mb manual doesn't mention holes at all, and no pictures for orientation--nor does the quick install sheet, which manages to ignore holes and standoffs in about 10 languages.
    Thanks, Shawnee

    If you click on the picture to enlarge (on the web page) you will see there are 9 mounting holes. 3 lots of 3 if you like.
