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.

    Contents of your MB. Just pop the one out of the case and install this one.
