	Way to go! Good announcement there, well thought out. Glad you could
point it out to the reflector.

I recently upgraded my computer system to a clone 6x86/133 MHz
in a mini-tower.  The level of RF interference is probably 20 dB
worse (into a AM table radio) than the old 486-25.  Of course the
486 had a case with an attempt of RF tightness.  The mini-tower
has lotsa paint on all of the seams between cover and chassis.

I will experiment with trying to seal up the case a little better, but can
anyone help with a source of really RF-tight mini-tower cases.  Don't
mind paying a premium to get a decent case, but the ones I have 
ordered have all been disappointments.

I know someone must have solved this EMI/RFI problem with a commercial
solution.  Want to see a case with finger contact stock
around all seams or lots of screws and any improvements to reduce
emmisions from any other leaks.

Thanks for any help.
