    i've used motherboards without any grounding at all with no problems. Maybe try running without ground to see if everything goes good then ground it if you have a problem?

    Grounding everything helps keep noise to a minimum which means a more reliable system.

    Tis true, but I have also heard of people on here grounding their motherboards and getting more problems.

    Stupid question, but since there is a Ground on the ATX power connector, wouldn't that "ground" the motherboard? Is it really necessary to run another ground? (And no, I know absolutely nothing about electronics or electricity)

    ^^^^^ I'm thinking that too. When working on a standard PC case, all you have to do is touch a piece of bare, unpainted metal to ground yourself. If that's the case, then you're fine as long as you attach a ground wire from a piece of the metal on the PSU to the chassis of the car. That makes sense to me. Ask an engineer, if you know any

    then again, they put grounds there for a reason. i once had crazy electrical problems in a car, figured out one of the many grounds was loose. just one.
