    ive bought an ide western digital hard drive and the underside has an
    exposed pcb.

    this may be a really silly question, but should this pcb be protected from
    making contact with metal, its just that the device im gonna be mounting it
    in will be placed directly onto a metal bay that will contact the bottom
    side of the pcb.

    Hard drives have been that way for decades. Just make sure that it's
    properly screwed into a bay with at *least* four screws.
