  1. hi, with the case i have there is two usbs and a firewire port on the front of the case but i dont know where to plug in the firewire leads. i plugged the usb ones in because the manual from the motherboard said how to do that but didnt say anything about the firewire. there are many leads that arnt plugged in and say things like GND and things with + & - but dont know where they all go.

    i also have a display on the front of the case that should show the temperature and time but dont know where to plug in those leads either. if anyone has any ideas it would be really helpful.

    Cheers craig x

    What board do you have?

    If its not in the manual, you probably can't do it without buying a PCI Firewire card, and then perhaps the card will have a spot you can connect your case Firewire to.
