Isolated ground question
« on: January 21, 2008, 07:29:19 PM »
So my CHNC retrofit is well underway and I'm getting ready to button up the PC and drive components.  Unfortunately, I've run into a question that I can seem to answer...

I need to know if I should keep the ground(s) of my motherboard, breakout board, and Rutex drives isolated from the system chasis AC ground?  I originally thought it would be best to keep them isolated for noise purposes and had been putting it together as such, but then I found that the chasis of my Rutex motherboard connects to the shield of its LPT port which will connect to the LPT port on the motherboard which will tie the PC directly to system ground.

What does everybody else do??

I have everything connected to the same point on the chasis.
