Question about "powered usb"

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Next month I will be helping my son build his first computer, using this motherboard. He uses his mp3 player to listen to music as he goes to sleep at night. Would like to know if it is possible to get the front panel usb ports to be powered, so the player can charge when the pc is powered down...

If so, how could this be done? I am fairly handy with a soldering iron if I have to preform any electrical mods... would prefer not to, but all the same...

Thanks for input and suggestions in advance.

Gigabyte MBs have it. From the 3 USB ports in the MB one is Labeled POWER.
The one in RED is POWER USB.

If you are censored about powered usb you can always find powered usb hubs for cheap at best buy and other electronic stores most come with multiple outputs. I use one for my keyboard and stuff and ipod and various other things. ASROCK also has a feature that charges them faster if you are looking for onboard powered usb.

It looks like power states S1 and S3. They are enabled or disabled in the BIOS.

Looking more twords powering usb port from psu if possible to take system power state out of equation..... I know that when my sig is powered off, but psu power button is in on position the led's on Mobo stay lit... Looking more twords something like that... as there is limited plugs available where my son's pc is connected to the strip. Would prefer to have everything centralized to his pc rather than run another usb cord to power strip for charging. His Mp3 player is this.
His powerstrip holds, pc power, tv power, xbox power, wireless access point, printer. Strip is 6 port. Outlet under it is shot ( will not securely hold a device pluggde into it, even with seperating prongs)

if the fornt of his case supports powered usb yu can enable it in the bios so even when the computer is off, his usb charger will still work
