    Just make sure that your motherboard is fitting correctly in the i/o panel. I like that idea!

    They're actually pretty nice. On flat motherboard trays where you have squares (damn you, Lian-Li) instead of nice screw holes, your board may be uneven in some areas, mainly because you can't use the brass standoffs. My Lian-Li came with those stupid square clamps that you'd put a screw into, but the clamps moved around a lot and could fall back through the hole a bit.

    With these built-in spacers, you don't really run that risk.

    Props for the Matt Groening avatar. :)

    Wow, I sense a revolution of general niceness with that new thanks button. D44VE is already plugging it in his sig!:shadedshu

    i thought part of the point of spacers were to make sure the current never gets to ground? so these build in standoffs wouldn't conduct current to ground? (ground is the case here)
