Having problems here with my build, it involves the CM 690 II Advance and MSI Big Bang Trinergy Motherboard and the Corsair H50.

I can not for the life of me get the IO shield to align properly with the ports on the Mobo. The PS2 ports in particular are rendered useless, some of the USB/ESATA are to as when mounted the board is clearly uneven with a "slope" going in the direction of the PS2 Ports and the PCB more visible then it should be at one end of the IO shield then the other.

At first i thought it was a clearance issue with the H50 backplate interacting with the 690 motherboard tray.. I even removed the sticky pads from the H50 back plate to gain a mm or two extra clearance. This did not help. I also though it may be to do with the Chipset/VRM heatsink mount/pins on the back of the board. This after further investigation is also unlikely.

Running the system without the IO Shield is not something I am comfortable with at all so that is not and should not be what i have to do to resolve this.

At this time I am pointing the blame at ether the motherboard or the case. But Im not sure what to do about this.

That sounds a bit strange. I thought it was a form factor standard for the placement of the I/O section to be positioned just right in relation to the placement of the motherboard. May I ask why you're not comfortable running the system without the I/O shield?

Use the I/O shield that comes with the motherboard.

For dust/dirt and risk of damage reasons. I would not feel comfortable reaching around the back of my system to plug/unplug things knowing that if i make a wrong move a plug/finger could hit something its not ment to. That and it just looks wrong/ugly to.

This situation is complicated by the fact I can not return ether the motherboard nor case as being unsuitable as i have used/unpacked them enough to be unable to use the 7 day distance selling regs(I am in UK) to return as unwanted.

So im more then a little screwed here it seems.

Is it safe to assume you have tried putting the I/O shield on the mobo before putting it in the case to make sure that the shield does actually fit? If it doesn't then it is the fault of the manufacturer and I would recommend you contact them and let them know. Otherwise, must be the case/mobo combination.

This probably doesn't help at all but I've been running my current system for months without the I/O shield on and I don't have any issues with dust or poking things that weren't meant to be poked.. (dirty minds...). Probably helps that I have a massive heatsink below the ps2 ports though so I get better airflow without the I/O shield anyway.
