Closed Any way to convert IEEE 1394 motherboard header?? Tags: Motherboards Components Last response: May 31, 2012 11:25 AM in Components Share SecretCobraz May 31, 2012 7:48:00 AM Ok, basically I work with IEEE 1394 (Firewire) with a lot of older Sony camera systems. The case I want, the Corsair 650D has a front panel port that is connected to a mother board header. However, very few current gen Mobos still have the connectors on the board. I thought about buying a PCIe card, but it's going to drive me crazy not being able to use the front port. Is there any way to basically convert the mobo connector from the case to a PCIe firewire card in a way that will let me use the front panel port?

Also use something like http://www.pc-tronics.co.uk/internal-ieee-1394-firewire... to convert the header to the internal pin type header.
