Securing the Mainboard to the Case
Also when securing the mainboard, be sure all case wires are out of the way. Dont allow any case wires to remain below the mainboard. And, if you drop any screws or anything else, be sure theyre removed before installing the mainboard. Any little metal parts inappropriately floating around under the mainboard could cause problems, because they could inappropriately ground the bottom of the board. Also be sure that your screwdriver is clean and has no metal shavings or grease on it from previous projects. Little metal shavings are also bad for mainboards.
Now screw the mainboard to the case (Figure 69). Youll only need two screws. But, feel free to use more.
