Well besides grounding myself how does the motherboard get grounded. I'm getting the inside of my case powder coated today so I need to know quickly what to do. Should I put standoffs on the tray to keep the threads not painted? Help please!
Cover the screw holes for the stands with tape.......this way they will reamain metal on metal. To ground yourself when working in there....touch your foot to a metal baseboard heater while touching the case (that isnt coated)
I just called the powder coating company and they told me that there usual procedure is to mask the threads of all the screw holes and I can just sand off the top of the holes myself. I hope that's enough.
It's the coolermaster cosmos 1000. The problem is that they already have the case and are about an hour away. I called to see if they can mask the holes in the mobo tray but they said they would charge me extra for time and material.
Buy a couple of screws the same thread size as your standoffs. Screw them in to break loose the powder coating then screw in standoffs. A more elegant solution is to use a tap the same size as the standoffs and use that to open up the holes for the standoffs.
And yes, computers are art. Powder coating or painting the inside of your PC looks really nice when done well. 2 of my 3 cases have been re-painted by me, inside and out.
