I am new to the pi, but an old hand with hardware and software generally.
So I have a pi 3 and a phatDAC (what is the correct capitalization for that anyway? :) ). I presume the installation method is to solder the included header connector to the phatDAC and then just put that onto the GPIO header. Does the header provide enough physical support, or do I need to use the mounting holes at the edge that line up with the holes in the Pi and mount it that way as well?
Also, I see that the 3.5 mm connector ends up above the middle of the pi 3 board. Right now I have the standard pink and white Pi Foundation case. What is the best method to route my speaker cable with this setup? Or do I need a different case?
