I used #12 X 2" phillips head wood screws to hold my RSIC clips in the wall top plate and 1 1/4" drywall screws to hold the clip to the joists.
Framing inspector came by today for a look-see and passed my framing. He even said it was a tight/neat job...better than most he's seen [done by home owners, I assumed].
He was really concerned about the clips (I used DC04's) and the distance between the top plate and the joists, but when I told him it was *ALL* giong to be filled with insulation, he smiled and said that's what he wanted to hear.
Tomorrow begins the plumbing for the bathroom and the bar sink.

Also, any big deal to use drywall screws to fasten the metal part to the joist? I'm running out of wood screws and don't feel like making another HD run today.
