    m2 ATX, ground to chassis or battery?

    of the 3 main power inputs, for the negative battery marked input, can I ground to chassis or is it better to hook up to negative battery?

    thanks

    addendum:
    Bare metal on the chassis.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    thankyou.

    then why does the diagram call it the "negative battery -" input?


    just curious as to if they think one way is better. grounding to the chassis is easier anyways so I don't have to route another wire all the way to the battery.

    bye the way, does radio shack have the fuse taps so I can tap my acc. line to signal the m2 atx?

    Technically, the negative battery is attached to the chassis too...

    Radio Shack probably has the taps.

    Only a guess but I would say that they use the term "negative battery" to simplify for non English native speakers. What "ground " or "chassis" is in anything other than English I haven't a clue
