I would have to agree with peter in this one. All connectors are in the 1337 wire management locations! :happy:

What even uses firewire anymore? Just old cameras and such. USB 2.0 is better than firewire and i honestly havent seen anything in the past 2-3 years sold that needs firewire.

That's true....theres less support for firewire, compared to USB. All my devices have been USB.

gasp.... pretty much said b4, cheap overclocking master

the p35-ds3p may have some glitch issues because it supports ddr2 and 3 ram... but if u want firewire.. some cases have them built into the front... just hook up the case headers on ur board!!!

The DS3P does not support DDR3. The P35c-DS3R does.

The DS3P has an upgraded NB heatsink and has a firewire port, other than that it's basically the same board as the DS3R.

It is my understanding that firewire can be a faster connection for some items. For $20 more, I can have firewire on the board. If it is the same board other than the firewire, it would be worth it to me to pay the $20.
