Got a case with front USB 3...mobo doesn't...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have a case with a front panel USB 3 connector. My motherboard supports USB 3.0, has 2 in the back, but no connections for the front.
Could I add a pci card or something that I could plug in to get the front usb3 working? If so, what would I be looking for?
Most on newegg, at least the ones I'm looking at, only add more to the back of the case.

Does your case have the internal headers or is it a pass through USB cable? Some USB 3 cards might have internal headers built on them but I don't know which ones.

smh....

maybe i wasn't clear, my bad
1. my motherboard supports USB 3.
2. It has 2 USb 3 ports in the back panel, plus 4 USB 2.
3. My case has a one USB 2.0 port and one USB 3.0 port in front.
4. I can connect the USB 2.0 port from front into my motherboard, but there's no place to plug the USB 3.0 onto my motherboard. (hence no usb 3 header)



And thanks, but I don't need a usb 3 panel, I already have one. Just wondering if there's another way to get the one that came with the case working. Otherwise, yes I may need to just get that.

Sure you can. Just get a USB 3.0 card with a front panel connector.

No, you don't need to get another front panel.

Just get a USB 3.0 card that has a internal header on it. Then you can connect the case's USB connectors to that header.
