So I'm switching to a HAF 932 now and on my MB there is standoffs attached to screws. I got a few off but some others seem to be stuck so I can't install my MB just yet. Any ideas on how to get them off OR can I somehow install it with them on? thanks

Grab some sockets and/or pliers? Whatever you do, dont install the mobo with standoffs in the wrong spot. You'll just fry/bust your board.

Agreed - you'd think a stupid little thing like motherboard standoffs/screws would have been standardized by this point.

They are standardized. Almost all cases use 6-32 UNC screws for that. A notable exception is Lian-Li, who use metric M3-0.5 screws instead.
