Stick with plastic.

Eliminate any potential grounding/shorting issues from the get go.

I was actually glad to see you mention plastic washers. A Guy

Washers. When the board is in the case a few of the standoffs aren't elevated high enough to the point where there's contact between it and the board, which basically causes the board to recess and contort slightly. I used two plastic washers I had lying around and it actually seemed to solve the problem; the 6950 lined up just a bit better as did my sound card.

Now, would it make a difference if I used metal washers?
Sounds as if CM shipped the wrong standoffs. I would investigate that.

No, I'm done investigating. You don't get any worthwhile responses (if you even get one!), customer support is nigh on useless.

I'll make do with what I have. I just won't purchase another CM product so I won't have to go through this again.

Wow, I've actually had the opposite response with Cooler Master - https://www.sevenforums.com/overclock...ml#post1130623

One thing I suggest you don't do - deal with them, (or any other tech support) through e-mail or chat. That route is frustratingly slow, and will most likely generate a canned response. A phone call is always the best way to get an issue resolved, and your point(s) across

Anyway good luck with your issue.

Two CM Cases

I have a HAF932 and a HAFX. One had un upper fan that rubbed the case slightly. Solved it with a shim. These are the quietest, coolest rigs I have ever owned.

Plastic it is. Any idea what the safest bet in terms of ID is?

It. Works.

I haven't made the move yet but I test fitted with another board, and the 4870 fits in snug and aligns with the expansion slot properly. Now I have to decide if I want to risk this heavy ass DCII weighing itself down to the point of depression. I mean, it's doing that now in the Stacker but with it being so close to the base I can just stick a piece of foam underneath to support it, in the HAF there's too much space between it and the base, or even it and the PSU cover for that matter.
