Sometimes, case manufacturers include their own and it's just garbage as it doesn't fit right.

As for the i/o shield, I ALWAYS push ALL "silver thingies" in. Their purpose is to hold the shield in place so make sure that you don't open them too much. A tight fit is perfect but they shouldn't be sticking out like you have in the picture!

GL.

should i just use the motherboard until it finally dies or should i just spend another $160 for the exact same motherboard just because of 1 visible static shock? Generally speaking how bad is 1 visible static shock?
i feel dumb if i hv to spend $160 for 1 visible static shock, but OTOH i have a mild case of OCD hehe biggrin.gif

Yeah the PC is running fine, im typing with it.... biggrin.gif

oh.. so when i was trying to attach my External HDD to the PC USB port even if my finger didn't touch the USB port at all, electricity can still travel?

If the PC is fine, then spark didn't "damage" anything. There's no need to replace the mobo bcz of that incident.

LOL, bro. Electricity does "jump" from one conductor to another even without it physically touching it - how lightning works is a great example.

LOL hehe biggrin.gif

this will probably be my last question, hank you very much guys for all your explanations [biggrin.gif]

anw... i hv a question about my case-board usb 3.0 connector...

i noticed when i first build the PC that the USB 3.0 plug doesn't snug fit / tight at all like all the other connectors. it's less snug than fan / usb 2.0 / audio plug. it's just not fit at all. i can easily take it out when i pull the cable, unlike other connectors.

also when i plug it in, it didn't have the tactile feeling / click sound you feel / heard when something is connected. is this the bitfenix shinobi case fault or the msi motherboard fault? here's the picture.

the 1st picture is when im holding it with my hand (pressing it from outside the camera)




the 2nd picture is when i take away my hand and leave it there




as you guys can see, it got a little bit loose. i'd like to ask,, is this the shinobi 3.0 plug fault, or the MSI board connector fault?
because the thing is whenever i plug usb 3.0 device like USB / HDD to the front of the case, the USB device i have got connected/disconnected intermittently all the time...
More importantly, will it short out the motherboard if its not snug fit? i couldn't make it snug fit without breaking the board it seems...


is this the bitfenix shinobi case 3.0 fault or the msi motherboard connector fault? or is that normal with the usb 3.0 connector design...? if its not normal what should i do abt it?

The two different USB 3.0 connectors that i've used on my asus mobo don't come loose like that when connected. The connector of the case isn't properly made or your mobo usb 3.0 connector isn't holding it properly.

Personaly i would just tape it down with a little bit of ductape (only touching the plastic of connector and plastic of the mobo) or try to route the cable so that its weight is supported in some way.

i tried every possibility of cable management i could think of that didn't involve ducktaping or pressing the USB3 cable under another thick cable and zip tie it a certain way so that it'd push down. (im afraid it'll bent sideways if i do that)

if you wouldnt mind checking out this photo, you can see the right side small bump is not as big as the left side small bump, in my opinion. can you see it clearly? is it true or it's just placebo on my end?





that's front and back. the left side (in actuality) aka the right side bump on the picture looks like it's not properly made / not as big a bump as the left side.

what do you think?

2) also... from naked eye and from touching lightly... i didn't see that it bend. when i took the picture today i tried to see it again, and i dont think it's bent (yet, fingers crossed).
one thing i'd like to ask though, if any one of those 10 pin bent, is it still pluggable?

i mean, does not being able to plug the case usb3 plug to the board is one of a sign that it's bend...?

i can plug in just fine if i hold my hand on top of the cable, it's just won't stick no matter what i do. i tried 4 different cable management and plugged unplugged everything from almost the beginning, and the usb3 still won't snug.

it's just the left side though that won't connect firmly, the right side at least, it plugs okay-ish

I would tape it as TiezZ Be suggested. You can also create a tight fit by folding a piece of paper and inserting it with the cable (from the side that is lol) but I'd go with the tape method.

Most of the time it's the cable that 's not properly made.

As for shorting out the mobo, that's highly unlikely. You'll just have issues with connectivity if it comes out from one side.

Unless you have another USB 3.0 cable laying around, the cheapest and fastest fix would be to tape in place.

alrighty... last question, ATM im using a PCI-e wireless adapter, but its only 150mbps TP-LINK brand the link. it's quite sucky, i couldn't maxed out my DL speed with it from where i put my computer.

To max out my DL speed i have to move the PC to the center of my room 2 foot over, which is not an option. i have several wireless router antenna, including one high-gain wireless router antenna that is unused in my closet, also TP-LINK brand.

does antenna from a wireless adapter and from wireless router interchangable? can i use my wireless router antenna and plug it on my PCI-e wireless adapter?

2) also is there a way to turn off the green epilectic-inducing status led-light off?
(i didn't get the manual with the box, i hv the cd though, but it's not written there.)

How is your router placed? In some situations it's easier to move the router a bit to get a better signal. (Depends on distance, walls, furniture, factors, etc...). Or try both, you can also use an extension cable with most of the wifi PCI cards (for the antenna, preferably not too long)

like this:

Don't know if the other antennes are compatible with your wifi pci card. It will probably work but don't know if the high gain antenna will benefit the signal when connected to your pci card

there's a extension cable for antenna? cool. thats porobably cheaper than buying a better pci-e adapter.

btw,, is there any difference between buying a usb adapter and a pci-e adapter other than convenience?

btw,,, when people put @x.x Ghz on their siggy, say @4.2ghz / @4.3ghz on their siggy, generally speaking... is it normal clock or after turbo boost clock?
