Is the top mobo shield necessary?


Recommended Posts

I am in the process of modding my TI case for a VGA connector. I want this thing to be easy to take apart with the hack/mod in place. One thing that would make it easier is if I just went without the top shield over the motherboard. I realize the original shield was partially used for heatsink purposes. Since this TI now has an F18A installed, the heat dissipation is no longer needed. What other purpose was the shield for? Was it shielding EMI? Something else?

It will be a pain to cut the shield for the ribbon cable and VGA connector, but I will do it if I have to. But if I don’t have to, then I will be happy. Opinions?
