Question about HAF X Case & USB3/eSata ports

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just got a HAF X case and an ASUS crossfire IV mobo. in the half X there are 2 USB3 cables that just have normal usb 3 male on the ends, I guess this makes them kind of useless? unless I run them out the back of my case through the watercooling holes and plug them into the exterior ports on the motherboard? Also there is a cable for the ESATA port on the front of the case. Can I plug the end of that into an internal sata port on my motherboard, or does that also have to just be plugged into the rear port on the motherboard?

For the E-SATA you just plug it into internal sata port.
You don't have an internal usb 3.0 header so you can't use an adapter to plug the usb 3.0 cables there, so you plug them into the back of the motherboard.

You are correct about the usb cables. You would route them out the back of the case and plug them in on the rear of the case.

Gotta get me some of those would make my front usb3.0 route a lot simpler, and it would give me a reason to redo my cable management.

I don't think so.... Only mobos made this year have usb 3.0 headers I think, but it wouldn't hurt to request the header now if you need it later on.
