I got the Asus Z97-A and was disappointed with the IO shield. cheap feeling and doesn't line up exactly. Anybody know a MOBO with a real high quality IO shield. Like steel or something, haha.

It's from a kinda crap brand though... don't expect an ECS motherboard to overclock well or have good features.

Wait...your looking for a motherboard simply because of the I/O shield that will be facing the back wall unseen and covered by the usb cables and input/ouput cables...??? God damn paint it or something. Or make it fit. Or make sure your case is compatible with the motherboard. I/O shields are made in "one size fits all" for their respective types (ATX, EATX, Mini ITX, Etc) and should fit. Make sure your installing it properly.

haha no not really. I'm more just curious what brands out there make a quality IO shield since that could also be good indicator of their attention to detail.

Just like stated her, i would probably go Asus, MSI, EVGA, Gigabyte, then ASRock in that order. But thats only because i have an MSI laptop, asus board and EVGA gpus currently.
