    I don't know if my motherboard had that shield or not. I don't remember seeing one when I cleaned the system last weekend. It seems like the shield you're talking is built-in in my cabinet. May be I am wrong, may be not. Check your cabinet.

    Actually the shield is usually bundled with a new motherboard at the time of purchase-you have to fit it at the rear of your cabinet before installing the motherboard.If there's no shield in your cabinet then the place where its supposed to be will remain blank.

    i ordered the DG33BU mobo a few mins earlier-i suppose i will have to find a way to get by without having an I/O shield in my cabinet.Any suggestions on how i can create a make-shift I/O shield for it using readily available items like cardboard so that i can close the gaping hole that will remain at the rear of my system after i install the motherboard?

    The reason i ordered it is that it has 4 DIMM slots for DDR2 memory,and so i will be able to utilize many of the old DDR2 memory sticks that i have laying around with this motherboard.
    It's ok if there is no I/O shield.
    You may get I/o shield locally. Search for it.
    Available on Amazon but not for exact model search for similar.
    For diy you can use cardboard, thermocol with tin foil/aluminium foil.
    You can use filters (fan filters) also.
    Don't know it will work but will create more heat.

    Yes i'll have to improvise and make something out of cardboard/thermocol or whatever else i can find.Leaving the area empty will be a risky proposition and it will allow foreign objects and dust particles to enter into the cabinet.
