So I got this problem... Ya see, I moved the guts of my computer from its cheap, cramped chassis to an older but more spacious 4U rack-mount enclosure. My computer is happy but I'm not. WHY!?! Because it has no front panel for USB!!! Not a problem. I'll just take one of my extra headers and bring it up front through the 3.5" bay that I don't use. WAIT!!! Now it's ugly.

OH, WHAT AM I TO DO!?!... Oh yeah. That's right.

I designed this specifically to fit my spare I/O header from a LianLi mid-tower case. It has holes for FireWire, USB and Audio. I don't know if it will be of use to anybody else, but I've included the part file as well.

Hehe. I enjoyed like the over-dramatic portrayal of the issue. I'm quite picky about these things too. One day I may run into the situation!
