I do not understand.

What good might come from having that information?

 

Do you have the tools to measure the torque that you are applying?

 

What sort of "harsh environment" do you expect for the computer?

Continual shaking in the engine-room of a ferry or cruise-ship or naval vessel?

 

Will the computer, while operating, be subjected to a wide range of temperatures, such that it expands/contracts unevenly (plastic parts versus metal parts) ?

The case of a desktop computer is fairly soft metal.

 

Too much force, such as using an electric screwdriver, can "spin" the screw in the hole, enlarging the hole, so that the screw's threads do not contact the case.

 

So, I say "just tight enough so that the side-panel does not rattle".

 

Don't worry about it.  Be gentle.

 

Note that the very-first time that the screw goes into the hole, the very-hard metal of the screw cuts into the soft metal around the hole, thus cutting threads.

Enough to fully insert the screw, but not enough to "strip" the hole.

 

Why not use "thumb-screws", as pictured below, and tighten them "finger-tight" ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

May the 4th be with you!  :generic:
