Can you place a mobo on a 45* angle?


Will it cause any problems to place a mobo on a 45* (or less) angle? I don't think so , but I asked just to be sure. It won't cause any trouble with fan vibrations right?
Thank you.

no way. The only problem would be the danger of it cracking. Make sure its mounted serurely.

as long as you have something supporting the mobo along the bottom, i don't think there should be a problem. but if you don't, the weight on an unsupported section could cause it to bend and eventually crack

no problem,
i cannot see why it would crack if you mount and secure it properly?

No reason for cracking as the vibration due to the fan are negligible...

Thanks for the replies.
It will have a support under it (a square piece of metal, and it will be screwed on it). The hard disk and the rest of the parts will be mounted in their normal position.

I'm sure it goes without saying, but if you're going to be using a piece of metal to support it, make sure that it's not making direct contact with the bottom of the board or you'll almost certainly smoke it.

Although you always manage to crack a smile on my face, this is not the first time I've built a pc. I just asked if it will be ok. I know how to handle the mounting of the motherboard =)
