Looking for a USB 3.0 adapter...

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm currently using a TJ08B-E and the problem I'm having is my motherboard USB 3.0 connector interferes with a second graphics card if I want to SLI. I don't want to lose the front USB ports, so I was wondering if anyone ever heard of an adapter that changes the header to a right angle?

Here is a pic of what I mean, you can see the header up at the top. If I put my second card in with the USB 3.0 plugged in, it bends the header and pulls it off the board (already found this out, luckily the plastic bit pushed back on). The best case would be some sort of adapter I could plug in that would turn 90* up and maybe I could make that work. Anyone have an idea?

Never seen a right angle USB 3.0 adapter. If SLI is not an option because of this than sell you GTS 450 and get a GTX 470 instead (GTX 470 beats GTS 450 SLI)?

Ah, well actually that is just the pic I had on hand to demonstrate. I have the GTS450 and GTX460 SLI. I'm really tired of buying and selling video cards like crazy so I just settled on using the 460's for now until I can get my hands on a GTX680. I was just curious if such an adapter existed or if anyone had ever heard of it. I couldn't find anything in my searches.
