    No, they won't cause a short. The brass spacers dont touch anything on the MB that would cause a short. Their purpose is so the critical electrical parts on the MB dont touch the Case/MB tray, which WOULD cause a short. It'll be fine.

    only use the standoffs that line up with your boards mounting holes, each board can and sometimes do use different screw patterns needing the standoffs in different places. dont just screw them all in because they have a place to go, make sure you line them up.

    read my troubleshooting guide, it will answer most any doubts you have on things
