So I am going from never having built my own computer (but I've done a lot of study!) to building a regular ATX build inside an old Mac G5 case and I was wondering if anyone had any tips they wish people had told them before they started their early builds?
I am currently working on how I am going to mount the motherboard. My plan has me making my own motherboard plate but one thing I wanted to make sure of is that I'm not making any problems on grounding and static discharge that might fry everything before I finish. Currently I'm planning on having a sheet of metal (cut from an old computer case) attached to the inside of the G5 and then make a motherboard plate to attach to that so I can handle the motherboard without having to touch the motherboard itself, like when attaching the bracket for an aio water cooler.
