Its annoying the hell out of me, but I dont feel like taking the shit apart
Well you could take the mobo out and fix the problem.
Or you could maybe pour a pint or two of acrylic back there.
That would probably work too.
acrylic is an insulator, so that would be a bad idea, me thinks.
I was kinda kidding...
Probably just a screw or mobo standoff. I would leave it in there until it shorts something out, then you'll feel like taking shit apart.
Well that scared me enough to pop the mobo out. Not sure what the problem was, but its gone now. So ty.
Glad I could help.
More of an insulator than air is?
yep. Convention PC design is to use heatsinks and fans to aide components transfering their heat to ambient air. Acrylic will further impair their ability to do that. Therefore, acrylic acts as a greater insulator because it adds to (not displaces) the total resistance experienced in dissipating heat.
I wasn't aware there were heatsinks on the back sides of motherboards, Jolly.
on the top of ICs, yes. And Silicon is an excellent transmitter of heat.
so what was rattling behind the mobo?
