I have recently bought a new motherboard and case (sumvision 636b).
I have always read that it is not a good idea for the motherboard
to be touching any part of the case. But this case that I have
seems to have raised parts which seem to be acting as standoffs.
I also have holes in the case which can be used for standoffs and it
seems that the combination of the raised holes in the case itself and
the standoffs are the mounting panel for the motherboard.
Has anyone seen this before and is it OK for me to install the motherboard
ontop of these raised parts within the case. The whole of the motherboard will not be touching the case, just the raised parts.
Yes, the stand-offs are there to support the motherboard and provide selected grounding points.
The stand-offs must match the mounting screw holes in the motherboard, make sure no unused stand-offs are left on the mounting plate as they could potentially short out the motherboard.
