CoNSPIRACY_ Hey guys, which ports should I plug my USBS into for closest to CPU? Don't understand the talk about blue and black ports?

Paradigm Shifter The product brief of the X99 PCH indicates that it supports a maximum of six USB3 ports and fourteen (!) USB2 ports, so if you can't account for all of them, chances are it's one of the port pairs that aren't actually wired to anything from the PCH itself. Given the I/O panel USB ports (10x USB3, 2x USB2) and internal headers (2x USB3 headers, for 4x USB3 ports; 2x USB2 headers, for 4x USB2 ports) a secondary USB3 controller is also present, so it lends support to the idea that they just didn't connect all the possible USB2 controllers electrically.

Hey Zoson, nice to see you still lurking on this board.

I think there are 2x "external" USB 2.0 ports on the mobo, and 2x USB 2.0 headers on the motherboard.

On my setup:

2x external ports have:
- keyboard
- mouse attached - both visible on the tree in the earlier post

2x internal ports have:
- 2x Corsair link commanders, connected via an internal USB hub visible in tree
- 1x Front panel IO ports, tested where these appear with a usb pen drive

Also, both internal usb 3.0 headers are now accounted for too
- 1x pcie extension plate thing (as above)
- 1x front panel usb 3.0 io ports

I think I have enough USB sticks to plug something into every socket - I might give this a go at some point.

Too much fun, i don't really need to know anymore - but it has got me a little bit obsessed!

How very strange!

Any more ideas?

Thinking about it, I can't remember how many USB ports that the X99 chipset is actually supposed to have... so it could be even worse and they're controllers with no physical connections outside of the chip...

This is from the manual:

There are 2x "USB 3.0 headers" (these are #16) and 2x "USB 2.0 headers" (these are #24).

On my setup, nothing is plugged into the #16 at the bottom of the motherboard and the front panel is on the right hand side.

More testing required, I think you might be onto something. Thanks for hearing me out! ;-)

It will be a few days until I can test, I will post results back.

I've had to order one of these:
