    Quick PSU question

    Is it ok to use metal mounting screws to bolt down the dsatx to the case?

    Metal screws SHOULD be fine, but, you need to use risers too. You can't just screw it right into the case.

    The only PSU I've heard problems about metal screws with was the M4ATX where the contacts around the screw holes were positive rather than ground which made a short circuit.

    It might not be a bad idea to wait for another response from someone who has actually tried this.

    Thanks for the help!
    for anyone else who wonder the same thing.
    it's fine, just need spacing so the bottom traces don't touch the case.
