i mounted the backplate today and found that it would rattle, it was not sitting snug?

is this a common issue?

i found some of these out in the MTB swag and let the modding begin!!

take a pic of the air space between bracket and PCB

opps did you cut the round nylon washer to fit under nut ?

if so the washer goes on the other side of nut

the vid is NOT GOOD.

the washer is installed in the correct posittion see the white nylon square.

if the washer was added to the washer side of the backplate it would suspend the backplate off the CPU-mobo metal plate no??...and that would stress the MOBO area not the reinforced metal plate area...

with the stock setup the t-nut was protruding through the MOBO and the stud bottomed out on the nut and causes the ratlle. now the t-nut is below the surface of the MOBO and everything is snugged up.:thumb:

currect you want the studs to float through MB with backplate touching metal reinforcement when cpu torqued down
