has removing the (i assume its a) shielding can affected audio quality that you can tell?Build is coming along. The Audio Card Housing was too long so I cut it back. I took a little extra off because my first attempt was crude. I would've ditched it all together but it also brackets the card down to the mobo.
Yes, the housing was so I cut it back. Fits much better now. There is one other point pushing on the IO Shield that I couldn't find but it isn't nearly as bad as the audio card housing. Anyway, I took care of that but trimming it back.Was the audio card cover interfering with the IO shield?
I doubt it will. I still haven't fired up this build yet, ha.has removing the (i assume its a) shielding can affected audio quality that you can tell?
And I'm having this issue as well. The Power and Reset are so so close to the IO Shield that they could easily be pressed if you weren't careful. But it seems to be ok for now.Especially around the buttons, some people have had to to reseat their board because it was depressing the button continuously.
I've seen a lot of ncase m1 builds with just SSD's. In my current build, this machine will take over as my home tower until the REDACTED arrives.I personally avoid installing 3,5" HDDs whenever I can because they take up so much space and require cooling.
While I haven;t used an Impact board, other boards with the foil-foam-backed IO shields have been MUCH easier to use than spring-contact shields (the upper sprung contact slipping inside HDMI ports is always an annoyance), particularly in systems where clearances are tight and there is only one reasonable way to manoeuvre the board in. Maybe it's just Asus failing at tolerances?That thick I/O shield, it's horrible. My VII Impact also has it, I feel it creates more problems than it solves. Especially around the buttons, some people have had to to reseat their board because it was depressing the button continuously.
