ASRock Extreme3 USB Header question

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Ok so I'm about to upgrade to a new case (Antec Dark Fleet) and it has USB 3.0 front panel connects and I dont want those wires sticking out the back of the case. I would like them to work, but want to know if there is a way to get a 2.0 internal header and just plug them in there.

Any idea if there is an adapter for this to plug into my mobo?

(and I dont care about 3.0 speeds, I just want them to work.)

Thanks

If I understand your problem correctly, you could get something like this:

Why not just run your usb 3.0 front panel connectors to your usb connectors on the motherboard?

@Nick that is almost what I need... my problem is the case I'm actually getting has that USB 3.0 Header (the long blue peice) but my mobo doesnt have a 3.0 onboard header. I need a backwards adapter if you will...

@Freeline, with the case i was getting it was just usb 3.0 ports but I didnt want wires sticking out the back.

Then something like this should work:

Obviously, you won't get USB 3, but it should give you USB 2.0.
