Default 2 BackPlates for MotherBoards

I just recently purchased 2 Motherboards and my own fault (did it over the holidays and had to much rum and eggnog it appears!) Both MOBO's didn't have the I/O Plate (backplate).

Does anyone have an extra or know where to get one quickly for not a whole lot for either of the following boards!

Pretty sure the one mobo is this one :

Canada Computers | Motherboards | Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 Socket AM3+ AMD 990X+SB950 Chipset Dual-Channel DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066 MHz .3xPCI Express x16 slots 8-Channel HD Audio Gigabit LAN 6x SATA 6Gb/s 4x USB 3.0+14x USB 2.0 ATX (I can verify in a little bit will call wife lol as I'm at work).

The other motherboard is

M4A88T-V EVO/USB3
ASUSTeK Computer Inc. - Motherboards- ASUS M4A88T-V EVO/USB3


Thanks in advance for any help folks!

I'd contact Gigabyte and Asus support. They 'should' send you an i/o plate FOC.

I could help you get the Asus one if you want just need your serial number but I have a lot of bad blood with Gigabyte so they might be a little more complicated

Soullessone21 : I can give you the serial # tonight off the box when I get home!

Nofolk : How abouts did you go about this I tried ASUS Live Chat today (wouldn't even work) and I'm thinking its not an RMA request as the board works I just the need stinkin backplates! Gigabyte I couldn't really find anything other then attempting to RMA.

EVGA sent me one free when I misplaced mine while my case was out for powdercoating.

And your best bet is to call their tech support line. Usually the techs are so happy it's not a real problem they'll just mail you a faceplate. It only costs a couple bucks postage, and makes a very satisfied customer.

Yeah they really should do that. Heck I even had Coolit Send me a replacement backplate when I lost one. Most vendors for small cost items will be very considerate.

That being said I have to one day call EVGA to get a new SLI bridge (lost mine somewhere when I put in a new case).

Anyone have an "in" with either of these companies? I called and they were actually pretty rude said I had to have proof of purchase etc... or I'd have to pay for the Backplate as well as shipping :(

Backplate I don't wanna pay for shipping fine!
