How do I make a good, decent template to cover my IO port on the back of the PC. I made the mistake of ordering an open box item and got no IO metal shield, just the mother board. Doh! This is a MSI motherboard Macro ATX form factor.  Any suggestions? Clear tape and tin foil + exacto knife?

    normally, the i/o shield comes with the mobo.
    So ask the retailer, or manufacturer for one, or ask a warranty replacement.

    Not sure if this helps but the model number of the board is " MSI K8MM3-V Socket 754 VIA K8M800 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard".
