Front USB/Firewire Bay???

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of a front panel USB/Firewire device that uses the motherboards headers instead of running cables to plug into the back ports?

The Antec P160 case has a builtin set of connectors like this that works great for me, but I also have a Soyo Bayone 3.5 in front panel that also plugs directly into the motherboard 1394 and USB jacks, and includes a flash reader.

 

Thanks,

Mike

Yeah, I know cases can do that but I don't want to buy a new case just to get front USB and Firewire.

 

Thanks for the tip about the BayOne 3.5.

FrontX makes different mounts, I think. Google that.

 

Yes, but overly expensive.

 

Aerocool makes a nice panel that has all the great features, but uses the same run the cables to the back of the case thing. :(

I have been searching for the individual cables to use instead. I know FrontX makes them, but there is NO WAY I would pay $6 for a freaking $0.25 cable.
