Biostar M4M70-M4 mounting question

\015 Hi , Mother board is biostar P4M80-M4. this is not a problem but just an inquiry, I have an e-machine case. There are 4 stand-offs in the case. the other mounts are raised mounds whihc the mother board attaches, no stand-offs are necessary. I had shorted one mother board either due to a bad power supply or the does the raised mounts make a difference for this model of motherboard. thanksJoe\015

Answers :

Of course it could make a difference. Any contact between an active voltage on a motherboard and the metal of the case will fry the motherboard and possibly the P/S. There are different sizes of standoffs to fit different cases and motherboards. Sometimes if a person doesn't use a sufficient number of standoffs, one corner or another of the motherboard can be inadvertently bent toward the case ground causing a short. Even the raised mounds you speak of need standoffs of some type if the surface of the raised mound encrouches upon a surface of the motherboard that has voltage on it.
