In need of an I/O plate for an Asus P5N-E SLI.
have you tried contacting asus about it? sometimes they will provide you with some little things like that.
meh, no real need for an I/O plate.
so true lol
but id say try getting a hold of Asus, i know they suck at customer support but its worth a shot
its to block dust usually and if the case flow is front to back it wont pull in dust anyways. I dont use em anymore myself. especially with DFI and the CMOS jumper in the back. its way easier to use/flash without the i/o in the way.
yea, makes sense, i just got one of those DFI X48 with CMOS on back also, i'll try without the I/O panel and see.
Yeah, especially on DFI boards, it works well with the cmos reset as sneeky said. Hey KBD. Guess what I got today?
wow, what a rip off.
let me guess: FIRESTIX.
i got your PM, thank you very much for everything!
nice find, newtekie, didnt know they had an online store. but those prices
Wow, $6.50 for little piece of aluminum. You'd probably be better off crafting something out of tin foil lol
Holy heatsink , Batman !!
Me thinks I'll try and cut one out of some thin AL I have in the shop...
good idea lol, just get some metal and cut it up to your liking, and boom like 50 cent i/o shield
I think I'll make a paper template first , then once I get it right , transfer it to a stiff cardboard then trace that template onto the AL.
if yo got a machine shop it will be real easy. i know, i used to work in one.
No machine shop. Woodworking shop. I have a drill press as well as some punches etc...
I'll probably attach the AL to a piece of scrap wood to serve as a backer to prevent distorting the thin metal.
On the other hand , if'n someone would step up to the plate and send me one ...
...it would save me a lot of hassle.
