post #8671 of 22184
Just got my Mercury S5.. of course excited but a concern is that my mobo standoffs only align on one side of my motherboard. So I only have two screws holding down my mobo. My motherboard is the Asus MAXIMUS VII GENE. Should I be concerned or just say thats fine and move on?

ok thanx for checkin those measurements for me, I didnt realize they had an o-ring but if that o-ring is 23mm OD thats only .5mm bigger than the hole but with the fastening collar being 25mm it should work without moving around. I may have to test a different panel to make sure though.

EDIT: Im starting to think that's kinda sketchy now, I just found that Green Lee actually makes a Knockout Punch that is 20.4mm. Now I just need to find one for less then 50-60 $ rolleyes.gif.
You are probably thinkin just get a step bit (and I might do that) but those can get pricey too and I really like the results you get with the ko punch's

I think that it would work in regards to fitting, but the o-ring fitting right may be sketchy as you say. You could always try on some scrap plexi or plywood or something and see how you like the fit.

If you are going to buy a new punch, I am thinking just get a stepped bit, lol. The one I got was around $30 at Home Depot.

Okie dokie. I want to see what's going on there, because if it's a problem with how we made that panel we need to get it replaced for you.

Cool.. I love you guys.. you seriously have the best customer service! I though I was out of luck and just that's how it was made. I'll be sure to take macro shots and good photos to show you want I'm dealing with.

Alright after doing some lookin around I just found a 20.4mm punch for $31 and the 20.4mm die for $8 and my existing draw stud is the same as the one needed so I'm set I guess (as long as the BP threads OD is no larger than 20.4mm).
I dont wanna use the larger punch and take the chance having the fillport/drainport loose fitting on this beautiful case. Thanx again for the help - reps

If you have a drill (assumption), why not just use a stepping bit instead?
