I need help... lol don't we all??

Anyways heres the deal: I just bought a case, and I tried to build my new computer but I was faced with my first problem. When I tried to install my motherboard I realized that the audio ports and the usb/ethernet ports on the mother board stands side to side, but the windows in the back of the case stands top to bottom. So they will not fit through the windows... What should I do??


a little visual to help explain my situation

Exchange the case.... Post your mobo specs and someone will help you pick the correct one to order

The motherboard should have come with a I/O plate that fits it, which you install on the back of your case.

can u unclip the motherboard backplate from your old case, then you can use that.

sometimes in a new case you have to 'break' the default backplate off with pliers in order to change a backplate. mind be careful, remember, you wont be able to return it if you make a hash of it!

good luck

For the most part you shouldn't have to use anything more than your hands to get the original I/O plate off. Some are a little stubborn, but for those I've noticed that a couple of well placed blows with the handle end of a screw driver does the trick.
