Re: Washers with Addtronics 6890 case

I would suggest measuring them. Most quality motherboards (such as the Abit BH6) have 3/8 inch doughnuts and keep traces away from them ("away" isn't very far: 1/64 - 1/32"). Most quality cases (I can't speak for your particular case) will accommodate those doughnuts if the mounting holes are properly centerd. If the case doesn't, I'd send it back. You most certianly do not want any metal (screw head or stand-off) over any traces, masked or not. That could capacitively couple the trace to ground, if not outright causing DC a short. Do not over-tighten mouting screws, but do make sure they make good ground contact. Larry
