This probably doesn't help at all but I've been running my current system for months without the I/O shield on and I don't have any issues with dust or poking things that weren't meant to be poked.. (dirty minds...). Probably helps that I have a massive heatsink below the ps2 ports though so I get better airflow without the I/O shield anyway.
I have looked at the pairing of IO shield and motherboard outside of the case and can find no issues with alignment there.

Im not at all comfortable with the idea of no IO shield as there are in my motherboards case more then just a huge heat sink back there, some of the ports are only 1 port high as it were and around/behind them are SMD's and other components vulnerable to being poked.

Also IO Shield or not doesn't get away from the fact that the PCB of the motherboard itself gets distorted on fitting in the case with the IO shield and that distortion is what is causing the misalignment. And bottom line IMHO there is no excuse for this at all.

I will phone the retailer i bought the case and motherboard(and pretty much everything else) from tomorrow and see what they say i guess.

Going thru the content that came with my case there are a few MB stand offs that are different (longer), you might double check your stand offs. Is it possible to show any pictures of your set up, might help.

What are those taller standoffs meant for?
I had some trouble with the io shield with my 690 ii but is that because i didnt use those 2 standoffs? :S
post #10694 of 19729
if you're using the I/O shield that came with the motherboard the right way up, i find it impossible that it could not work. Insert it from the inside prior to installing the motherboard, PS/2 ports closest to the top.

Have checked standoffs, there was one that was different, have replaced it with a normal looking one. Things still look out of alignment and not right however.

http://picpaste.com/ioshield.jpg

Ths is the best picture I could arrange to explain the problem.

Everything looks a few mm's out on the Left hand side nearest the PS2 Ports to about half way along the shield.

Am worried that this will affect port usage and i have no desire to pull system apart once its built if it does as that would mean reinstalling CPU cooler and all the trouble that entails (this is by far my least favourite thing to do pc build wise.. ever)

My esata and firewire port are like that a bit but it looks like things will plug in, did you try plugging things in to see if it they fit?
One thing you can try is remove your MB and use like the handel of a hamer and push on the motherboard tray where the top 2 rear stand offs are, with them removed of course, all you need is 1 or 2 mm, it might do the trick.

Ive tested the USB and PS2, USB seem to do ok, not sure about PS2 and dont have anything esata to try.

Oh and to make things even more fun, somehow one of the side panels has gotten scratched in the last few hours.. more then likely because ive been so pre occupied with solving this IO shield issue and hence prehaps been a bit less careful overall when ive been handleing the side panels. Dammit.

It looks like we need to enlist the help of the modders in here to see if they have a way to make it look like it's brand new again.

The scratch combined with the io shield issues and the hassle ive had with the video card for this build has me thinking perhaps getting back into the build game was not a good idea. On the other hand i have nearly £2k's worth of stuff here that says i HAVE to get this done heh.

After seeing the pic of the I/O shield's alignment, I can almost say that there's nothing wrong with it except that it's not 100% perfect. And y'know, I don't blame you: I am one of the most anal perfectionists you might ever meet. However, it looks like everything can go into their respective ports and jacks just fine, so there's no reason to be concerned about it.

But as for the 5770: that's new technology for ya. You're not alone, either.

So don't worry man: these are small bumps even though they don't feel like it. You're far better off with a custom built than some irritating pre-built.
