Kinda confusing, but I'll be building my old computer into a new CM Storm Trooper case.

I believe it has USB3.0 with this type of internal connection (20pin).
Last I checked my ASUS M4A89TD Pro/USB3.0 board does not have such connection, however it DOES have the smaller 10pin(?) connections.


Is there a way I can split the 20pin into two 20 pins without limiting my USB3.0 capability?
I'd hate to have USB3 connections on my case, but not have them work.

Links would be great!

i figured it out and SoG, I let the mind flow.....I decided to stay with the tension as the way to keep my reservoir in place. My main issue was the curve of the hose sticking out of the case causing my res to be moved anytime I closed the case. I bought a 45 rotary fitting, shortened the hose a bit and velcrod the res to the case. i think it turned out nice
..its come a long way from when I first built the system. I need to bite the bullet and try my hand at sleeving.
Heres the "let your mind flow" fix:


before the fix..notice the tubing jutting out past the case?:


apparently I don't have a picture of the jutting. If you notice though, I do have something pushing the tube in so that I can close the case.

Anyway, thanks everyone for helping. Much appreciated

What fans is everybody using?
Gonna throw my Rheosmart 6 in to replace the built-in controller, and will be getting a new batch of fans (since the CM ones are just too loud)
post #5556 of 12478
I'm using the Corsair H100 PWM fans on my to rad , Thermaltake PWM fan as my exhaust, 2 cheapo 140mm CM blue LED fans as my front intakes, and at the top I'm using 1 CM SickleFlow

thumb.gif Just wondering how you add or drain the fluid with that res filled up like that?

I use 7 Scythe Gentle Typhoons 1450, really silent (at low/medium) fans also good for radiators. Also have 1 Scythe Kaze Jyu Slim 100mm fan and 1 Enermax red LED fan, both are loud if used with controller.

Your mobo doesn't have an internal usb 3.0 header, it only has the 2 usb 3.0 ports at the back (the small NEC chip behind them is the controller)
All the internal usb headers are for 2.0/1.1 only.
source: link, from the manual: 2 x USB 3.0 port(s) (2 at back panel, blue)

Right, but I was hoping I could at least split it into a USB2.0 connection so I don't have two useless USB ports up front
