    So you were being serious. You didn't answer my question: if you have a motherboard with no EMI shielding, how can you ensure that onboard audio hardware is shielded? Besides buying a new motherboard of course.

    EMI shielding on motherboards is nothing new, I have it on my motherboard as well. Then again, my motherboard is the Asus Maximus Formula - purchased for $475 at launch. Not exactly a budget solution. (and onboard audio still sucked without proper support for digital surround and ASIO)

    He's buying a new motherboard. He can choose to buy one that comes with shielding. The one I linked to a review of costs $149.99 at Newegg.

    limit your choice of motherboard purchases on a solution that is terrible for quality audio recording. Smart.
