no no. We like having our motherboards and a nice antistatic surface ontop our motherboard boxes (or a tech bench). Not on the metal case. You will accidentally connect two random pins on the back of the mobo, hear a pop, and that's it for that machine.

The 2 things you should never do is place a motherboard on a metal surfice or an anti-static bag. Only the insides of the bag are actually anti-static. By placing it on a metal surface you running the risk of something touching the board and to echo the poster above me, when that happens it's normally bad news. Good thing that's a P4 and not a 1155 or 1366 because if it was I'd go to america and give you a clip round the ear for being foolish.


Go find a cardboard box and cut off one side. Place the board on the cardboard strip, jobs a gooden.

This is why I don't fold on my P4/Athlon XP rigs. Only exception is one P4-era (Dempsey) Xeon but that's because the board has a PCIe slot for my 9800GT.

They may be satisfactory for hardware firewalls or torrent/newsgroup boxes but the PPD/power consumption ratio is horrible unless the board has PCIe.
At long last...

If they have PCI-e slots that would be nice.
