I know the crosshair does have a hole for the antennas, how are they installed? Do the antenna wires go through the IO shield and the you place on the gold connectors for the antennas? did you have to make holes for anything in the IO shield? Lastly would you be able to post a picture of what the rear IO shield looks like with maybe one the antennas removed?

Unfortunately mine is fitted already so I can't get a picture for you without disassembling the system which I don't really want to do now that I finally have it working wink.gif. I will try to describe it as best I can though.

I did the following:

1) Remove the IO shield
2) Snap the antenna cables onto the wi-fi module
3) Insert wifi module into M2 slot
4) Re-attach IO shield.
5) The MB backplate has partially prepunched holes for the antennae. I pushed out the metal flaps and clipped them off with some pliers.
6) Fit backplate into case
7) Put motherboard in case as far away as antenna leads will allow.
8) Put washer on RP-SMA side of antenna cable (the side with the screw thread) and then push RP-SMA plug through the backplate.
9) Hold RP-SMA plug in place with one hand inside the case while putting another washer and the nut on the other side that is now protruding through the backplate outside of the case.
10) Repeat 8-10 for second antenna.
11) Push motherboard onto backplate whilst tucking away leads beneath IO shield (fiddly)
12) Screw motherboard into place.

Hope this helps!
