I am placing an updated atx Gigabyte mobo in an atx case, and am having one hell of a time, fitting the io shield. I just cannot get the 4th corner. Yes, Iím fitting from the inside. It is definitely the correct shield, and and an atx board has been successfully used in this case previously. Any ideas? Would there be any real harm, running the system without the shield? Iím guessing the boardís internal grounding would suffice.
I've never run across one I couldn't get in but have used a computer without lots of times when scabbing together a computer out of leftovers. It works just fine other than disrupting air flow somewhat.
Copied it in color with my scanner on to card stock paper, cut out the openings, adhered it in place, and attached all the stuff. Fits right, and looks exactly like the real thing. Works perfectly and I'm satisfied.
