MOTHER­BOARD I/O

Maximum PC - - BASICS BUILD GUIDE -

THE NUM­BER OF TIMES we’ve for­got­ten this lit­tle plate. Now you’ve got ev­ery­thing out the way, you can in­stall the back­bone of your sys­tem: the mother­board. First, open the box and find the rear I/O plate, lo­cated be­low the board with the ac­ces­sories. It’s a rec­tan­gle that goes in the back of the case to pro­tect your I/O from dam­age. Look at your mother­board, see which side the holes need to be for each por­tion of I/O (au­dio is al­most al­ways clos­est to the GPU slots), then push the I/O bracket into place, from the in­side of the chas­sis. It should click into place quite eas­ily. Some of the more padded brack­ets can take a bit of ex­tra force to get to sit cor­rectly, and some pre­mium mo­bos have I/O shields pre-at­tached, so you don’t have to worry about those.
