How necessary are the io shields and can you buy them separately?
#2
You can buy them on ebay. I am not sure if you can find the one for this specific model at this time, but there are always new listings with I/O shields. And no, they are not necessary.

Its just a plastic cover. I can't say I'd miss it. You can see it in the middle of this picture

Dunno if anyone is gonna argue the PC would be noisier or more prone to dust without it.
Heat from me

Lol! it is not plastic! It is made out of metal! However, I will agree with you, it is not necessary.

The metal i/o shield helps keep electro-magnetic signals inside the case and helps to provide stress-relief for the ports and maybe also help with grounding!

meh. you'll be grand. None of the 4 million raspberry pi's have them. And I'm sure I've had a plastic one at some point

They are traditionally metal mainly for E-M suppression I imagine as plastic doesn’t cut it.
What’s a raspberry pi got to do with the function and material of a back plate for desktop PC motherboards? Nothing. ;)

Can nobody spell here? It's PIE and I like custard with mine.

Where are all these io shields going ? It's not like they wear out or anything.
#11
yeah the shield will be part of the CE approval but then if you use power line adaptors it's probably just another source of interference. I have had a PC radiate interference that caused TV reception problems once and that PC had a shield :)

They are still with the original purchaser of the board.
These are repaired boards from RMAs.

So more boards than IO shields are made or is there an IO shield mountain being maintained somewhere ? :)

The previous poster just said these are boards that have been returned but without the shield.

It's not part of some massive conspiracy theory revolving around mot manufacturing enough of them with the hopes enough people will build PCs without them causing enough interference to bring the country to its knees.

Not plastic and has a role in grounding. If you look at the ports, they all have a metal flap to come in contact with the metal of the i/o shield that comes in contact with the metal of the case.

...what?
#17
fold up tin foil a few times then press into the motherboard , cut out holes , (abit smaller so you can earth it ) you could use a thicker metal , i.e coke can ,

, and does anyone know if you need a old haswell ( g1820 ) to update bios , or is it o.k as is ? cheers
#18
Been a few years since I built a pc

How much would it cost to get a half decent pc using this mobo ?

Currently using a 3 year old HP ProLiant ML110 G7 G840 Dual core 2.8GHz which I was on this website for £120 after cashback at the
time'

The BIOS is updated to the latest available version at the time of repair/refurbishment. If it's 'fresh' stock then it should be up to date already for the latest CPUs. You'll have to ask the seller how 'fresh' the stock is.

Got mine delivered 2 weeks ago, it took the G3258 without needing a BIOS update!

thanks
