I think I'm following. What you suggest would spread the force working against the glue/adhesive across 7 screws/standoffs instead of 4, right?
Did you ever measure the offset of the northbridge chip to the CPU chip? I know there's a very slight difference in height. A temporary thermal pad may be necessary while my copper shims are on their way (on a slow boat from China.)
The picoPSUs are a little messy just for 5VSB. But I also intend to power a 2.5" SSD or two. So I'm considering my options here.
I bought one just for the sake of experimentation and it does the trick.
