    Default ASRock Z77 Extreme9 IO Shield?

    Hey there guys

    I managed to get my hands on a Z77 Extreme9 for quite cheap, there's a catch, no additional items. Just the board.
    I've all the cables and what not here, so I can deal with that.
    However, an IO shield would be really nice.
    Do any of you know where I can order / get one?

    Thanks!

    Edit:
    Do you also need the WI-SB box for the Wi-Fi to work? I read it's an amplifier, but it won't hurt to get a confirmation.
    I don't really need the USB3 since my case ( R4 ) already has it.

    ASRock offers I/O panels for a small price.

    Please reference THIS page to inquire. They are $5.00 here in the US.

    I already send one to be sure.
    Couldn't find anything about pricing in europe though.

    Can you confirm what's behind the edit

    The WI-SB contains the the cabling and antennas for the Bluetooth/WiFi card. Plus a couple of USB 3.0 ports.

    So yes, I'd imagine you want that also if you intend to use the included WiFi and oor Bluetooth.

    You can also remove the mini-PCIe WiFi/BT card and install a PCIe WiFi card instead.

    Or ask ASRock for the price/availability for the WI-SB modules? Sounds like you bought someones refurb board?

    Ding ding.
    It's from a webshop though, they still give me a year warranty. For 120,- is it just too good to let it slip by. Lowest local price is 220,-
    If ASRock doesn't ask a ridiculous price for those items ( like 30 ) it's still a darn good deal.

    I can't use a PCI-E WiFi card btw, I'm using a 7970 crossfire, I need all the airflow I can get.
