Default Rear I/O panel

Do you have to put it in? My case came bent and can't/don't want to return because I drilled in the front bezel.

So do you have to put the back plate it? The push in spot is bent a bit so plate can't go in with the motherboard being able to sit directly on the spacers.

No, you don't have to, but if you don't theres a higher risk of the motherboard shorting out when you turn it on and of small objects falling through the gaps causing damage to the motherboard while in operation.

Its a good Idea to return the case and Get one thats not bent.

Nevermind, with a little, "ghettoneering" I got it to fit, thanks for the advice.
