Um, well I think I installed my I/O shield wrong

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm trying to connect an HDMI cable into my I/O shield, but the motherboard is too far back and it doesn't reach the actual motherboard, do I have to completely reinstall the motherboard to fit the shield now??? Case: Spec Alpha Motherboard: Z97-E USB 3.1

Yes. The board is not lined up perfectly. You'll have to unscrew everything and reposition the board. When you're installing the board, keep checking the I/O shield and the motherboard standoffs to make sure everything is lined up. Generally the ports with screw holes will be sticking out and everything should be pretty much right up against the I/O shield.

hmm that looks odd...

 

Try taking out the MoBo, making sure all 4 corners of the IO Shield are installed, and reinstall the MoBo, making sure to tilt the ports in the shield before angling it down on to of your standoffs.

Oh, I just noticed it looks like the shield is on the outside of the case? It needs to be installed from the inside.

No it's just the picture it was installed before the MOBO, and it was installed inside

...yeah that's not the right spot, you may have to bend the little spring pins back and twist it a little, pretty sure it's not supposed to slide in from the bottom. What case is this btw?

I'm using the spec alpha. I got it out. But it sure isn't wanting to match up correctly. Is it dangerous to not use the shield?

You need to insert it from the interior of the case and push it in toward the outside of the case/

It slides out a little bit but the Ethernet port comes out far enough to stop it so I ended up bending it slightly to get it out

okay, it's got two layers of metal you need to install it from the interior wall. right next to the fan. It should snap right in and line up. You can put it on the mobo first and the put it all in the case at once if that helps with positioning.

 

EDIT: You can "not use the shield" but it's not recommended as things can get into your case and it supplies added stability to the ports.

Pretty good description of what the IO Shield does from here: IO Shield Purpose (StackExchange)

Quote

 

1) Shield to keep electro-magnetic radiation inside of the case

2) Dust Cover / Air circulation director: The fan in the power supply shall draw air throughout the entire case and not just along the short way from the I/O area to the power supply that's usually right above.

3) Aesthetics: No ugly hole
