Mounting the Pi in a metal enclosure


Ronny Julian <k4rjjradio@...>
 

Might be a duh question but I see two screw holes in my Model B Pi.  One right below the logo and one next to the USB ports.

1 Are these OK to use as mount points in a case much like a motherboard?  

2 The case will also have other items like USB hubs and radios mounted.  Is is good practice to insulate the Pi from this common ground or is this OK to ground these pads?  

There may also be another motherboard (Mini-ATX) in the future.  Since this board has it's own PS should it be separate as well?

Thanks!
