It is important to tie all mounting points to chassis via a low impedance metallic stand-off. THis allows all the filter caps to provide dual filtering (CM & DM). Multiple points are necessary to reduce possible "standing waves" that can increase radaited emissions. All connectors should also ground logic to chassis to prevent "E-fields" from being generated between logic and chassis ground that can capacitively couple to the connector pins that are often unshielded (Sub-D connector pins are exposed). Any resistors or beads added between logic and chassis will simply increase the voltage between same and increase the formation of E-fields that can radiate. Hope this helps
