Case Rear I/O panel question

Hi,

I'm putting together a new system....I've been spending some time looking at the case and the motherboard that I like and am concerned about the compatibility of the motherboard and the rear I/O panel.

The motherboard I like is Asus P5K-E

The case I like is the RaidMax Smilodon:

It is an ATX form factor motherboard and an ATX case. However, if you look at the picture of the mother board and the case, you'll see that the case's rear I/O panel looks nothing like the I/O ports on the motherboard.

My question: is it possible to remove the rear I/O panel cover from the case entirely without damaging the case?
Any pointers on how to do this?

Thanks in advance...

Your MB will come with it's own I/O shield. Just pop out the shield provided with your case and install the correct one supplied with your MB.
