Corsair 400R Front Panel 1394 cable and the Sabertooth X79

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello all,

I was hoping someone could answer this question for me. I am completing a build using a Sabertooth X79 mobo. According to the specs there is no on board 1394 connector as it has an integrated "firewire" at the rear. This leaves me with a very bulky 1394 cable coming from the Corsair 400R front panel cable harness.

I suppose I could just tuck it away but it will taking up much needed room in my cable management plan. My first thought was . . . If I don't need it . . . Why not remove it?

My question is . . . Can I simply remove it by cutting away the wire leads and capping the end with heat shrink wrap?

I realize this will make my front firewire port inoperative but as I have nowhere to plug it in, it becomes a bit moot.

Looking for any suggestions/help on this one . . . I don't want to do something that will bring about the end of the world for my computer case smile.gif

Cheers

Fen

Have a look behind the front panel, sometimes the cable and port can be removed without cutting it,

If it isn't easily removable then just snip the cables as close to the port as you can. No need to heat shrink it.

I have done this a few times myself and never had any problems.

Thanks much.

Checked the front and the wires are all connected to a common connector which is glued into the panel. Rather than try and muck about with that, I think I will take option 2 and cut the wires.
