A while ago I bought an Asus M4A79XTD motherboard secondhand. I seem to have misplaced (or never received) the I/O shield for it.

Does anyone have one spare??

I would really like to get this build underway :)

Don't like your chances of finding one.

I am amazed at the number of used mobos for sale on trademe without them.
Pretty silly throwing them away with the case.
They are not hard to remove.

But very hard, extremely hard to find one! :D

You could make one if you were happy enough to rivet / screw / glue it into place.

If in metal you just need a drill, a file and some patience.
Cardboard would also suffice.

All the bent bits on the back of the original item serve no purpose other than preventing it from rattling.
