Exclamation DFI Lanparty UT I/O Shield

Just wondering if there was any place that I could get a new I/O shield for my mobo. It's listed in my sig. I accidentally bent off the pins that go across the USB module things, and now it just looks a bit rugged. Any place I could buy a new one, or a used mint condition one?

i think they are available from DFI. if that fails you'll have to see if a third party comapany manufactures replacements or check e-bay because you never know what will get sold there. failing that you'll either have to fix it or live with it.

I could fix it, but I'd rather have it looking its best. I accidentally ripped them off because the mobo wouldn't slide it because of all the little pins on the shield, so I just bent them off. Where are they supposed to go though? On the inside? or are you supposed to push the mobo out so the pins go on the outside?
