Btw, the mobo says it has front i/o ports, specifically 4 USB2.0 ports... are those pre-installed? Or do they yank those from the mobo? I've no idea how cases work these days..
the case has the ports
there is a cable that comes with the case that runs from the ports to the motherboard
you plug the cable to the headers on the motherboard

I don't think that has ever been asked before, but my guess would be No.

[rfdlink=/forums/autolink/redirectpage.php?linkid=28]NCIX[/rfdlink] still has to pay the shipping cost and actually build the PCs.
2 PCs = 2x cost of shipping + 2x labour + 2x testing.

Hopefully, one of moderator's could get an answer on this.
No cost for shipping, I live in Surrey BC and would pickup.
As for building I would do it myself.

The builder is pretty good to select only DDR2 memory if the mobo requires it. It's safe to say that ALL motherboards come with ethernet ports as well. You can always click on the part's name and then it shows product details. motherboards normally have about 3 pages worth of details, and it will show what I/O ports they have.

Awesome contest.

Feel free to PM me concerning nerdy computer questions.
