insulate mobo from case floor -material?

Postby bardos » Wed Dec 21, 2005 4:34 am

If you wanted to insulate a mobo completely from the case floor, punching out the screw holes as the only contacts, what would you use as the material?

I have used cardboard to insulate before, but I am looking for a thinner material. Would duct tape do? Plastic?

Bottom line: What's the best, cheap, strong, non-conductive, readily available material you know of?

thanks.

If noise prevention is what you're after, why not just grab some sound damping mat, use a holepunch (single) to make it holy, and apply?
