firewire socket? have seen differing reports!!

Thanks

PS would you recommend this board in general for an Athlon 64 build?

External ports only, no header. Bit of a bugger really, as I wanted to
connect the damn things up to the front panel connector on my Antec P160.
Grrr....

Despite the above, yes! It's a cracking board that I've had for about 2
months now, which has been rock solid stable, has survived a couple of BIOS
flashes and just works.

Just my ten pence worth....

What's that mean exactly? I've got a firewire, I think, port on my
Audigy, and I've got a similar, to you, front panel firewire case
connector. They don't look anything alike, is there some kind of
adapter or something you can use, are these different technologies?

Should have made it clearer I think....

The Antec P160 front panel has a Firewire port that terminates inside the
case with a bunch of wires and connectors for a Firewire header on a
motherboard, which the Neo doesn't have, thus rendering the front panel
connector on the case completely useless (unless I can get an adaptor of
some kind).

All I do instead is just leave the cable connected to the 6 pin FW port on
the back and it's taped to the side of my telly, waiting for me to connect
the DV cam when needed.
