I am building a new system. My Chieftec Aluminum case :D has front USB2 and Firewire ports with wires to connet to the motherboard. My MB, (MSI PT880 NEO) only has USB2 connections on the board itself, no firewire. My PCI firewire card has a standard internal 6 pin male connector, but the plug from the case front is intended for the MB and is not compatible. :cry: Is there converter available? Any suggestions? :?:

you could gut out the connector at the end of the cable and put on a firewire connector on the end, if you can find the correct wiring scheme...

yea, if you find a wiring diagram on the net, you should be able to cut the end of of a firewire cable and splice it to the front panel connectors and be set.
