Default Cooler Master Centurion 5

So these use some sort of clipping device to secure your cards rather than screws. It doesn't seem to me like it would hold the cards down very well. Anyone have some experience with this?

The truth is: those screws arn't really that necessary. The card will run fine even when it's loose but the screws help to secure it.


My computer uses 1.5A-load, .8A-idle, .65A-standby, .05A-turned off on 125V.

Those tool-less designs, usually aren't very secure. I always prefer screws, to those plastic clips.

Old school screws > New school plastic clips.
