Some help with the IO shield

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm in the middle of building and may have ran into a small problem. I have the mobo Z68X-UD3P-B3. So that said, my problem is that when I insert the IO shield on, and put my motherboard in after I put in my standoffs, the rear connectors DOES line up with the IO shield, but half the connectors don't even enter through the hole the IO shield has. So theres a gap between the connector and the IO shield itself. Whaht do I do?

That's absolutely normal and how a majority of IO shields are which sort of sucks

I took a closer look and the Io shield is slightly larger than my I/O hole in my case. so it also bends inward, because its not a perfect fit. The little tabs or clips on the IO shield makes no contact with the mobo. should i just continue?
