Should I worry about EMF, if so, how should I deal with it?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm still working on my case but thought I should ask, how should I deal with EMF shielding?
My case is my motherboard enclosed in 2 pieces of aluminium, it will have an Plexiglass bumper going around the edges when finished and I might get the aluminium powder coated or anodised.
What should I do about EMF?

Here's a picture of it right now.

What exactly would be causing EMF? Plexi causes some static, but it is negligible so long as there is some sort of metal that it can ground to. (And so long as you take proper precautions to make sure you don't kill your components with the static in your body)

Exactly


EMF wouldn't be a problem unless you have a big Van Der Graaf generator right next to your PC. Just make sure all metallic parts are connected to the common earth with the PSU and you should be fine. Earthing will do more to prevent EMI than shielding if you don't work with radio transmitters and such
