Hello i bought an Intel motherboard it didn't come with a I/O shield and i cannot seem to be able to source a I/O shield for it. Any input on the situation would be perfect. It is a LGA 2011 dx79TO i think.
Check this document for the part number for the shield: http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/sb/io_shields.pdf Intel Desktop Boards I/O Shields. You can then check the internet and perhaps Intel's spare parts desk. I rather doubt they will have any for a board this old, however.
If you want to see if that is still available at Intel you can call us at the following phone number: 1-916-377-7000
