[USA-FL] Supermicro IO Shield (MCP-260-00027-0N)

I bought a Supermicro X9SCM-F, but it didn’t come with the IO shield. Woops.

You don’t need one! Use it without!

It doesn’t feel/look right without it. I am half tempted to do that to get this build done though.

Honestly, how much are you looking at the back of the case?

It bothered me too, so I ordered blank IO shields from ebay. Super cheap but took time to arrive. Then sketched out the ports and dremeled as best as I could. I had to do significant sanding to make sure it didn’t just cut my fucking fingers off. If I had to do it again I would have just left it off but I was overly concerned with airflow. Just letting you know that thats an option if your OCD keeps you up at night.

I ended up just ordering one on eBay. Thanks for the suggestion.
