I'm just curious but how exactly did you "bolt" the MB down?

1st time - plastic clips. worked great, up until they all broke.

2nd time - the supplied machine thread screws directly to the mobo tray. Somewhere along the line there was not enough clearance, and it was grounding.

3rd time - used hex bolt standoffs into the tray, and then the machine thread screws into the stand-offs. (as I probably should have done the first time around).
whyfore is I here?
