Motherboard Raisers. What do they do?

I am making a case and want to know whether motherboard raisers are the best and antistatic way to attach the motherboard. Is this true? For reference THIS is the machine i will be moving to the new case.

Not anti-static, simply motherboard risers (not raisers) will prevent the solder and electrical components on the motherboard from contacting and conducting electricity to each other across the case (prevents short-circuits). Most modern cases come with them either pre-installed or in a kit that comes with the case. They are definitely important. Hopefully this helps.

Do you mean stand offs? Those are used to prevent the back of the board from conducting with the metal of the case.
