Hey, about securing the Furia to the motherboard, what about grounding when using screws? Amiga's HDD cradle sockets are firmly grounded and Furia has screw holes on each corner which are also connected to the ground. Thus there will be no short circuit or anything like that, but if I ground each corner of the Furia can there be weird ground loop problems or something like that?

So when I screw the Furia to the motherboard should I use plastic washers or is grounding every corner desirable? I've seen pictures in the wild doing the both - plastic washers and not. Currently I do not use any washers and found no problems, but surely there's best way to do it.

Ps. Since I got no accessories with my Furia I just ordered 8mm tall M3 plastic washers and 18mm tall M2.2 self tapping screws (had to cut few millimeters off they were too tall otherwise). Worked perfectly and feels VERY secure:
