View Full Version : Question on I/O Plate

10-28-2007, 07:36 PM
I hope this doesn't sound too silly and I embarrass myself. I have a question on how to connect the I/O plate on the back of the case to the motherboard. Seems that the I/O plate cutouts have metal tabs around them and I don't quite know what do to with them. Do I cut them off or just fold them back out of the way. The case did not come with an I/O plate so I'm using the one supplied for the MOBO by Asus(P5N32-E SLI).:o

I assume you are talking about the small pieces of metal covering the holes on the plate e.g mouse, LAN, keyboard, speakers ect.

You can just fold these back, or you can work them backwards and forwards until they come out, much like you would do with the ring on the top of a coke can ect.

Do not cut anything off the plate lol :D
