I use a the 4 corners plus a few extra where needed method but curious what other people do?
These were probably omitted because people didn't use them and because of cost reasons. I wouldn't worry about it though as the area where the screw holes in the motherboard are placed are built in such a way as to avoid needing to use those. That said, I used them back in the day. Each and every time.I stll feel weird not using paper washers between the screws and the motherboard
Yes I have. In fact, that's how I would set them up.Clearly you haven't used the weighted Logitech mice with every single weight in them!
Yeah ... it’s especially important if you’re moving the PC around.Uhm. As a system builder have an important PSA to all of you:
Standoffs are extremely important. Do not skip them. For one-off testing or troubleshooting in an open test bench, sure. But in an all-day rig: standoffs provide electrical grounding through the case and important structural rigidity. Without them, components can warp the board and isolated static surges can wipe out important SMICs.
Not me. I watch what I'm doing and when I drop a screw, I find it and put it where it was supposed to go.I would think far more ppl at the [H] would have more screws lose, honestly who do you guys think you are fooling?
Now seriously, raise your hands, who has had a screw rolling around in their case forever they could not find but could hear rolling around every time you moved the box?
