USB3.0 Front Panel Internal Splitter

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
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!

USB3.0 has 5 extra pins in it per port. If you look carefully at one, you will notice the extra pins (They sit next to each of the 4 USB2.0 pins somewhere at the top of the connector). The extra pins in USB3.0 allow for 4 more data wires and 1 more ground wire so I would imagine it to be impossible to split the connector while still having USB3.0 speeds. You can still have USB2.0 running through those connectors though.

USB3.0 just basically adds a few extra pins to the USB2.0 port so it should be possible to connect that USB3.0 cable you have to any USB2.0 connector on the motherboard using one of these:
