Old mobo & new case

  iced_ms 15:50 10 Sep 2006

Hi Folks

I've just bought a new case an Alpine Ez cool hzzp://click here

I took it to a friends to have everything swopped over and when i went to pick it up after work he told me that i couldn't use the 2 usb ports, firewire and sound ports on the front of the case cause my mobo won't support it...gutted

So i thought i would buy a new mobo. But i haven't been able to find any clues to if there is a socket A mobo to go in this case that would support the case features.

I'm happy with my processor so don't really want to layout for a new one at the minute but would like to use the accessable ports at the front.

Forum members advice, wisdom and experience would be much appreciated...:)

According to this click here

the mobo has front usb ports connections.

"Above the front panel connectors are the extra USB 2.0 connector and the optional game port. This board is too focused on budget that it leaves out the game port. This will be a turn-off for many gamers as they won't have the game port to connect joysticks and game pads."

Nice one for that at least now i can get the usb ports working which will be useful.

Any ideas on a board that i could get access to the sound and firewire on?
