i/o shield replacement?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
hey guys sorry if this is in a bad section i was not sure where to post this question.

I have been reading web pages concerning the I/O shields on my PC .from what i have read thus far the I/O shields purpose is :
1. to ground Mobo to the case
2. to act as a shield from Rf signal
3. to protect Mobo as you plug in a device//keeps you from poking the Motherboard with headset jack lol

So,having said that i know that brass screen is used as a Radio Freqency filter to block the Rf signal . knowing this i have an idea to make an exact replica of my Motherboards I/O shield using brass screen. the idea behind it is Airflow.
my thought was that by using the screen it would allow the hot air from my vrm/Mosfets to exit my case better ,since the case fan is about 2.5 inches from the motherboard. this means i have hot air being trapped into that corner of my case not getting good enough flow .

my question is will the brass screen be as good of a "rogue signal filter" as the original I/O shield?

any input on what I am trying to accomplish would be appreciated.

Stupid queers at newegg and asus ripped me off on an openbox motherboad, the one I got in my sig. They said since its an openbox I get what I get even tho and i/o shield should be required to be in an openbox. And those queers know that I want bother taking it back over and i/o shield. And seeing how i/o shields are about 15-20 bucks searching for them online. It really wasn't worth getting the motherboard openbox. Scew newegg and asus, they should tell you what parts you're getting in openbox before selling you openbox.

yeah i think i would be upset too. thats the thing about open box it usually means its been opened by the customer .and as we all know somepeople have a tendency to damage hardware not knowing what they are doing,or the hardware isnt up to the highest standard for the end user so they send it back .

i dont think i would ever buy open box.

as for my original question is there anybody here that can help?

Buy open box and then find the accessories on EBay. I ended up saving $90 with my R3E doing that (granted when I had to RMA it, they sent me a full retail box with all the accessories).

I bought my motherboard used from a member here. It did not come with an IO shield obviously. And I was too cheap to pay $20 for a flimsy piece of metal. So, I found a different IO shield laying around the house - cut it up to enough so that all my ports are accessible. Voila ! I got myself an IO shield. I have been running like that for quite a while now.
As to answer your question, you will find many people running WITHOUT an IO shield with no issue. But if you want to make yourself one with brass screen, I do not see a problem with that. Just be careful fitting it in your case so that it does not short out anything in the motherboard.

Newegg specifically says this:

Quote:
Newegg only guarantees your receipt of the Open Box product with the purchase of this item. Any accessories MAY OR MAY NOT be included. Newegg will NOT send you any missing accessories, even if it is required to use all of the item's functions.
Don't expect anything more than the bare item, that may or may not work 100%.
