Wierd Parts that was shipped with case, what are these?

Hi all,

NOOB WARNING: I'll be asking a question that is too noobish, forgive me for that. I just want to what these are:

I just bought a COOLER MASTER Elite

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119115

and I checked the parts that came with it.

Along with the screws, standoffs, manual, etc .. there came two (2) unidentified objects.

One looks like a metal donut:

the other one looks like a plastic with an X on it:

face up position:

face down:

Which I think the green paper should be peeled off and stick it somewhere.

What are these parts? Are they important?

The only use I can think of that plastic X is placing it on the metal surface where the mobo is seated. I guess, the purpose of this thing is to make clearance between the plate and the mobo.

Like this:

Is that right? Or I'm totally off? If I'm correct, should that Plastic X be on dead center?

About the metal Donut .... clueless

One last thing, this case does not come with those paper-like red circles. So this means I'll screw the bolts directly to the metal standoffs right?

Thanks!

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Now, I know the right term for that, Ill try to research about it :)

    Thanks again
  3. Suprised no one said what the plastic dohicky was for it is for sticking to things and running wire ties throught for cable management.

  4. The plastic piece is a zip tie mount used to help keep cables out of the way, not a motherboard spacer. You would mount it and run the zip tie thru it, then around the cables.

    A little to slow.
  5. LOL yup least you didn't call it a dohicky.

    Yup, someone from a different forum (where I posted this too) said it is called a ziptie mount. I just needed the term and it can be googled easily. I just don't know the exact name of these things .. Now I guess I know how it works. lol

    I have another problem, since these ziptie mounts are sooo cool .. my case only came with ONE! I have to find a place to buy these stuff!



    Thanks again.

  8. THanks for your replies ..

    ctbaars: Do you know a proper way to install thise ferrites? I can't see any pictures in google :( Should I put all of those audio cables in the hole?
  9. You loop the cables through the ferrite a few times. You should also call them back and ask for a farraday cage.
  10. Thanks for your reply. The only problem is my F_panel audio cables has a rubber coat already (made by Coolermaster) ... Can I just use this in F_panel USB OR the power/reset/speaker/etc cables that are scattered?

    EDIT: F_panel USB also has a rubber coat with it already

    THanks
