Asus ROG Maximus XI Code - mounting screw under armor?

 Share

Anyone know how to access the screw hole in the middle of the motherboard? It's probably under the "Republic of Gamers" portion of the armor. The manual shows the board without the armor, but no way to get the screw in.
 
I tried posting at the Asus forums, but it just says to contact "Silent Scones@Asus" and nothing else... not a valid email address or forum user!

at the back of the board there should be screws holding the (is it plastic?) covers onto the board, just unscrew them.

Maybe it's called "Silent Scones"?

Unfortunately, if I do that, I can't re-attach the armor when I mount the motherboard in the case.

 

I'm starting to think it's not meant to be used....

I had to look up the board (LOOK AT HE RGB!!) but I didn't see anything showing that. You may want to use a motherboard stud. I have seen them with a rounded end to fill the screw-hole, but unfortunately have been unsuccessful at finding you a link...but it looks like this:image.png.674c2085f74679faceb8a5453d5f91ea.png
