I/O Shield Help Allignment

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I am trying to install the board in the case but these damn things in the I/O shiled are in the pay of the ports! Can someone tell me how to properly fit the board in?

I'd actually like to know this too, The last 2 computers I built the I/O didn't seem to fit right. What's up with that? Is this normal?

You can remove the IO shield by just pulling it out.

Yes I had to bend them all to get mine on it was a pain in the arse.
EDIT: actually I don't think I had to bend them all but alot of them.

Bend off the metal prongs inward if its in your way, otherwise your descriptive descriptiveness isnt very descriptive.

Damn, I can't get the board to align to the shield. It wont align to the standoffs. Pain in the ass. Pleas help
post #9 of 14
Just stick with it man, honestly mine isnt as neat as it could be. I'm sure you'll get it where you need it just keep trying. I don't know if there is really a method to putting on the I/O shield.
