I have little project in mind for creating a very small form factor pc, what i would like to know is if its possible to remove unwanted connectors from the motherboard I/O, specifically the: - 1 x DVI-I Port - 1 x HDMI Port - 1 x DisplayPort
without damaging the motherboard?
I wish to do this so i can instead install a small discrete graphics card without compromising the size of the build.
Any advice would be highly appreciated.

No, motherboards are multi-layer, so without the schematic, you have no idea what's on what layer
Well frankly I have no skill with de-soldering I want to be able to use a very small case which follows the contours of the motherboard so no higher than the highest connector on the motherboard which is around 3.5cm by removing those connectors I can place a low profile 7750 in its place. Well at least that was the plan. But it looks like it will have to be shelved. Unless I can find someone who can remove them.
