I have most of my computer assembled but I cannot find the FireWire cable to plug in the FireWire port or whatever. Most tutorials I watch show the cable labeled as the 1394 plug but I checked all my plugs and could not find it anywhere, is this wire with the ones that came with the case or is it separate?

Case- http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Also, if you could can you post a picture of what the firewire cable looks like

First, motherboard doesn't have an onboard 1394 connector as far as I see from specs

"1 x IR header
1 x CIR header
1 x COM port header
1 x HDMI_SPDIF header
1 x Power LED header
CPU/Chassis/Power FAN connector
24 pin ATX power connector
8 pin 12V power connector"

Secondly (Nice choice on case, same as mine). That case doesn't come with firewire on front panel. Have fun with the new rig.
