The shield is for cooling the big chips, isolate EMI noises. Without installing the shield, the board still turns on but you may experience reduced stability and RF performance.

I advise you not to remove the shield from the logic board, even if removed it must be returned to its place because it has a important function, They protect the components beside them from the heat, Such as processor heat
