OK, it's the PITA Duck here trying to profit from Kahbrohn's misery.
Why are most stand-offs made of brass? Agree, brass is not as conductive as copper, but it is still conductive.
Brass is only 28% as conductive as copper. Some bronzes are as low as 7% as conductive as copper!
So wouldn't the brass standoffs that most of us use short out a motherboard almost as would direct contact to the case or a case w/out a mobo tray?
The reason I ask is that I am building two computers for friends (yes, I do have friends
) and the cases I purchased do not have trays.
(Damn! I just noticed that someone actually upped my Rep to 10! Did I really, truly say something noteworthy
or was it simply a kind gesture rooted in pity??
