    nf7 help...

    This is going to sound like a stupid question, but humour me on this one.

    Ive just got my new abit nf7 board, xp2500 and ram. Wahey!

    But... im having trouble installing the backing plate (i know )

    On the bottom ps2 port, theres a bit of metal sticking off. Do i snap this off? Does it have a purpose?

    Help....!

    These can be bent back, or just snapped off. They dont do anything, except annoy me. I didnt take them off and spent ages wondering why i couldnt get the mouse in, grrr....

    I know the things you mean. Asus use them too. I just made sure they sprung over the ps2 ports, rather than obstructing them. I think it's meant to reduce interference by grounding the ports.

    You shouldn't really need to bend it at all. Just make sure it goes on top of the connector block

    Did it bend when you first put the mobo in the case? Do you have a digi cam to show us?
