True, any add-in cards need to have the case to support them.

Line up all the IO ports to the properly installed shield then place all the mobo screws in and then go back and just snug them down don't over tighten.

I read somewhere, you should tighten the MB screws only with the strength of a little girl !

If you don't have a rubber grommet or opening close to the audio and front panel usb and power lines then you can also carefully run them under the mobo between the stand offs and exiting below mobo!

Be careful you don't have an extra stand-off in the mobo tray, it will short the board out.

OK, will check for cable length.

No extra stand-offs and nothing making a rattle so far.
