USB3.0 front i/o

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
What are folks out there using for getting USB 3.0 ports to the front of their case?

I'm looking for something that I can replace my current USB 2.0 front I/O with, or something that would fit in a 5.25" bay slot. Also, I want it to connect internally to the mobo headers.


The couple that I've seen from SIIG and Koutech require a cable run to the outside and plugged into a USB 3.0 on the rear . . . not ideal.

What are you guys out there using?

Wow! This is so weird! I JUST ordered this from Newegg, and it seems like it will suit me pretty well.... I got it OpenBox, so it's not in stock anymore, but maybe it helps you?

It plugs into a PCIe x1 slot and has the standard form factor to put a single USB port on the back of the computer. The second piece fits into a 5.25 drive bay and has four USB 3.0's in the front of the computer.

How much did that run you? IF you don't mind me asking.

It's 69.99 new on the Egg. That is one of the only I've found, but again, it doesn't connect via motherboard headers. You have to connect the front device to the back PCI card with a USB cable and then it plugs into a slot in the mobo. That may be my only option, but I'm still hoping for something onboard. There's got to be something that uses motherboard USB 3.0 headers . . .
