IO shield on wrong side of case (Corsair 275r)

Hi, im using the corsair 275r and i think the io shield may be on the wrong side (outside), I can still use all the ports, is it ok to leave it on the outside?

How exactly did you manage that?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

It shouldn't really matter if I understand you properly, (hint: post a pic here of the issue) and as long as you can use all the ports, I'd say don't worry about it

So rise up, all ye lost ones, as one, we'll claw the clouds

So like...you saw the blank IO side and thoght it should go on the outside? Not to mention the pressure needed to secure it backwards... just pop the shield out. Get your mobo and everything else out and just switch it.

No but, how is it in there? If you managed to actually attach the shield then it's fine being in the outside, but it's supposed to snap into the chassis via the inside and I can't really picture how it's affixed right now

its not super secure its just kind of holding the position if i don't disturb it but can come off easily

It'll work but it would obviously be better to pop the motherboard out and put it in right
