If hardware placement and usage is just a theory and there fore optional and not important then it isn't required in a PC, on a car, or on an air plane. What do engineers know anyway, they only designed it right
Gods forbid I ever let anyone from OCN work on my stuff, or my maintenance team spare parts indeed

I'd think if that were so you'd get electrocuted every-tine you touched the case.
Seems like the standoffs are placed for support the way they are spaced and placed.
But hey everyone else is right and I'm wrong. I'm going to take all of my stand-offs out and just let the board hang in there by on one stand-off and screw, not even a tight screw...
People want to nit-pick the f*** out of s***. Hardware has a purpose, should be used as intended, otherwise YMMV. Just my .02.
Unsubscribed you kiddies have a good night.
