So, I came across this when reading the review]for ASRock Extreme 4
The only negative I have for this motherboard is that it slips outside of typical ATX specifications. It’s 3cm thinner than a standard ATX motherboard and as a result may lack secure mounting on the far side since this isn’t a common size, which also means you should be very careful when plugging in the 24-pin ATX motherboard power – as the motherboard may flex.
I double checked data and turns out Extreme4 measures 12"X8.6" instead of regular ATX 12"X 9.6", Because it is 1" narrower, I see quite a few reviews claim this result in "flex" issues. Is this because the far right side/corner of the panel will be hanging over the case without a rubber stand to support it, and if it touches the case due to outside force the whole board and everything on it will be destroyed because of shorting of circuit?
1. ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 users, have you encountered problems related to this?
2. What exactly does "motherboard may flex" mean?
p.s I also heard installing computer parts using a magnetic tip screwdriver is bad, is that true?
