How tight screw 775 mount bracket on?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I screwed on a 775 mounting bracket to a 680i. Does the configuration of the bottom piece of the bracket matter? I know the top does but i did that correct. Also, does it have to be super screwed down? I just screwed till it felt snug and secure. Didnt wanna try to keep going for fear of hurting the mobo.

It's kind of a judgement thing.

I will tighten them down until moderate force causes the screw driver to slip. If I put more force into it I could tighten it even further if I wanted to but...well...I don't know. Again, it's a judgement thing. Only you will know when it's snug.

I always go for snug, not a hard stop.

You're essentially clamping down on hardened resin. Think of what happens when you crush an egg shell.

You should screw it on until you feel a mild resistance in pressure. Never screw it on as tight as you can, but don't underscrew it either. It's really something you just have to "feel."
