    Post Static

    I broke my budget and am getting the plexiglass to build the nice looking case. My concern is static and grounding issues. Anyone with a plexiglass case have any suggestions or comments?

    I have a acrylic case and havn't had any problems so far. As far as grounding I wired the MB, HD, and power supply up to one female bannana jack in the back of the case, then I can take a wire connected to the car chassis and plug it into the bannana jack to ground the whole thing. I have heard that if you take a 50/50 solution of water and fabric softener and coat the inside of the case it will prevent static build up.

    I would recommend keeping some of those antistatic gel packs in the case to help with static, but you shouldn't have any trouble so long as everything is well grounded.
