Step 5: Motherboard Installation | #YesWeBuild | MSI


Before we place the motherboard and connected components into the case. We must first prepare the chassis With your motherboard comes an I/O panel shield which looks like this. Each motherboard panel has a slightly different layout which depends on which I/O you have. The I/O shield is placed at the back of the case and serves two main functions First, it closes the motherboard access from the back of the case by filling up the holes in between the I/O. Second, it serves as a printed manual to tell you which socket is for what Next, check that your chasis has all the right standoffs to fit with the mounting holes present on your motherboard. You will need at least one standoff for each to ensure proper support. Take your motherboard and gently lower it at a 45-degree angle into the case. This step is a little tricky so you may want to pay attention when aligning all the I/O with the corresponding holes on the I/O shield panel. Make sure that none of small metallic parts from a shield gets stuck into any of the sockets. This could potentially short the connectors and eventually damage your motherboard. Take the big screwdriver to secure the board with each of the supplied screws. Don’t leave out any screws. A solid mount will keep it secure for all transportation
