I have been researching this for over a week, with little to no
success (probably due to the way I'm searching). So now I"ve
decided I need a little help. I have an MSI K8N Neo mainboard
that has two firewire headers. The mainboard did not come with
any method of connecting the headers to either the front or back
of a case. What I'm looking for is something like:

http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti...

but without the USB portion. I would get this item, but it is
currently unavailable. However, I would prefer something that
goes on the front. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi. Check out the products on this page:
http://www.frontx.com/order_a.html

Half-way down you'll see a product called:
"IEEE 1394 CABLE 2.5' - 6 pin M to 2x5 F"

That will give you something you can plug into a product like this:
http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProductDesc.asp?descripti...

Which will put firewire ports in a spare 3.5" drive bay.

There are cheaper options for front firewire, but most give you just one
port. Up to you.
