My new case came with metal standoffs already installed. Someone told me that mobos should only be installed with one metal screw and the rest plastic standoffs. Has to do with voltage differences between the metal standoffs. It has been a while since I assembled a complete new system. Is there a danger in using more than one metal screw?

You should bave 6 standoffs usually that line up with the holes in the MB as long as your talking ATX....Just make sure you don't have any that don't line up and you'll be OK....If you bave any that don't line up just remove or move them so they do.
