Need help with T5610 motherboard in T3610 chassi

I bought a T5610 on eBay at a bargain price of £50, but when it was delivered it turned out to have a T3610 motherboard, and further studies indicates that the machine is a T3610, and the only thing related to the T5610 is the marking on the front. I don’t need another T3610 so I got a refund and was told that I could keep it due to the cost of shipping it back.

I do have a spare T5610 motherboard so I thought that perhaps this would fit.

It can be mounted inside the chassis, but appear to lack the nuts/distances for the CPU fans. 
There should be 2 x 4 nuts/distances. There are only 2 useable.

The machine is at another location, and I did not have time to remove the motherboard and check before leaving for home.

  1. Anyone tried putting a T5610 motherboard in a T3610 chassi?
  2. Are there holes in the chassi to fit the missing 6 nuts/distances or are they fixed?
  3. Can you get hold of spare nuts/distances anywhere?
  4. If mounting using ordinary nuts, which one?

sorry this may not be of any help but more like a discussion:

3610 has 1 cpu socket

5610 has two.  

the cpu heatsink is mounted on 4 studs of chassis tray so you will need to map out and drill the 3610 tray to install two sets of studs for 5610 board.

chassis dimensions and back IO layout appear identical

Physical
FEATURE SPECIFICATION
T5610
Height (without feet) 414.00 mm (16.30 inches)
T3610
Height (without feet) 414.00 mm (16.30 inches)
T3610 / T5610
Width 172.60 mm (6.79 inches)
Depth 471.00 mm (18.54 inches)

Since I did not put a T5610 motherboard in a T3610 chassis, I could not provide much helpful information.  But, in this case, if seller put a T3610 motherboard into a T5610 chassis.  It should properly fit without chassis modification.  PC assortment screws kit can be sourced from big shopping site.

Re: the machine is a T3610, and the only thing related to the T5610 is the marking on the front.   It sounds like a 3610 chassis with a 5610 logo.  5610 INO.

"INO" meaning doesn't come up in Google.

lol, I did think of using google.  I just guessed the context to complete the sentence, 5610 In Name Only.

As for my comment, I did clarified that I could not be much help since I did not put a T5610 board into T3610 chassis.  But I remembered Dell used standard PC screws to mount motherboard for T5810.  Hence the suggestion for PC assortment screws kit.

Actually, it's a T3610 MB in a T5610 chassis.  Title in op has it reversed.
