  1. i bought a mobo recently and apparently it's going to come without an i/o shield/backplate...
    the model is a gigabyte GA-965P-DS3, does anyone know anywhere i could pick one up? i've tried local shops but they dont stock them.

    also if anyone here has a spare/unused one i'll buy it

    Wow US $9.99 (for 1)
    I have a box of different shields, maybe I should sell them !

    LOL... yea you should :p
    with shipping to UK that plate came to £8.08
    better than having a hole in the back of my new PC though i guess
