    estore.asus is out of stock. They had it for $6.50. Theres a guy on ebay selling them for $19.99 + 4.99 shipping. Seems like that douche bought it all from asus estore and selling it on ebay for that ridiculous price.

    Can you be more specific about the board? Motherboard? AMD or Intel?

    $20 for an I/O shield? I would rather just not have an I/O shield than have to pay $20 for a stamped piece of sheet metal.

    Maybe post a listing on here and a few other PC forums to see if anyone has an extra one available. Might even be able to snag one for free + shipping.

    Contacted Asus yesterday and its back in stock today. Nice. But it's 6.50 + 5 shipping.

    At least it's not 20 bucks + shipping.

    I/O shields make life hard work...they often get in the way, block airflow out and to be honest, anyone can live without one. :)

    ok? lol

    Well, my antec case has 2 front filters, so if the backplate are blocking airflow, then thats a good thing.

    Point being: If you had an I/O shield, fair enough...but buying one?
    Pure waste of cash and I'm sure that $20 could be far better spent on something else.

    Oh and the more air out of your case, the better.
