    FV24 grounding question

    How have people handled the grounding on the FV24. It looks like the 4 holes for the metal standoffs have to be ground. Does each one need to be grounded to the power supply, or does only one of the 4 need to be grounded for the motherboard to work?

    I have all 4 on mine grounded but I was wondering if I can get away with just grounding one.

    I dont think that any of them has to be gorunded, the mobo get its ground from the power connector instead, the main reason for them is to make sure that the case doesn't shorten the mobo.

    I've also seen plastic standoffs.

    Thanks, thats good to know. If I redesign my case I'll loose the grounding on those. That'll save a lot of headaches.

    One or two of the holes should be grounded, even though the main ground is through the power plug. The shielding on the board helps control noise...
