I/O Shield Help Allignment - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Pressure is part of what prevents the IO shield from falling out and causing problems. I have never touched the contact points on any of them.

Two of your standoffs should have a raised portion in the middle. I like to install these two standoffs in the top left and bottom right. That way I can fight the springiness until the motherboard lines-up perfectly. Once it has lined-up the raised portions of the standoffs will fit inside the mounting holes of the board and hold the board in place while you screw it down.

You have the I/O shield in the case already? Line up the MB and put slight pressure on it to push it into the I/O if you feel that the pressure you are putting on it is not doing the trick see which metal parts are getting stuck and bend them slightly you can always bend them back when you get the motherboard in place.

I always had the same problem.. Now the first thing that I do is make sure those aluminum stems are aligned perfectly with the holes in the shield. Then push in the shield one corner at a time.. then check the center areas to make sure the shield is in perfect position and completely flush.

Then. When you lower the board in make sure you go right to the I/O and mate the holes with the corresponding plugs. Then press in and attach one of the center screws to hold the board in place

Then start to put all the screws in without tightening them down until you have them all in place. Don't tighten any of them down until you know that the every last part of that I O assembly is in proper alighnment.. Then tighten them down while holding the board with a finger on the edge pressing towards the I/O portion.. If you have some of those aluminum parts that are just getting in the way too much.. snip it.
