you envy the front "easy access" ports found in many OEM computers?
The FrontX multimedia ports sold by hotmodpc.com
are great if you'd like to relocate some of your ports from
the rear to the front of the PC. Ports such as the game port,
headphone jack, speaker and microphone jacks, all are popular
ports to have located in the front. The FrontX makes this easy
for people who don't want to buy a new motherboard or case.
The FrontX drive comes with four ports, one for headphones,
speakers, microphone and a game port. These are just a few of
the handy ports that come standard, and options from the FrontX
website include USB ports, serial ports and whatever else they
may come up with. The standard FrontX drive can be easily upgraded
with these new ports by merely sliding in and out ports, much
like you would with Legos, or something of the likeness.
FrontX drive is made to install in a 5-¼ inch drive bay. The
extension cables run through your PC (potentially cutting airflow
and workspace), to the back where the ports are located. If
you want this done right, you really should try and run the
cables along the top of your case if at all possible, this will
prevent air circulation problems that might crop up.
