Found a working PCI-E to USB-C 3.1 (10gbs) for our Gen 8 :)


Recommended Posts

If you are looking to expand storage options on the cheap, this card is very affordable and works wonders! It doesn't need extra power so it makes it ideal to connect to a USB-C Icy dock enclosure or similar. At this point, I just have a USB-C to USB-A hub and a regular HDD dock (USB 3.0) but it works at full speed. I had to do this because if I used a regular (even powered) usb-hub on the 3.0 ports I was getting disks disconnecting all the time.

 

I have it on a W2019 server, no drivers needed.  I guess it should be farily easy to pass-through on a ESXi or KVM box.

 

This is the card:

And the adapter:

All the best!

How do this work?

As far as I know, Microserver gen 8 has only 1 PCI-E slot for graphic card, from the manual: https://support.hpe.com/hpesc/public/docDisplay?docLocale=en_US&docId=emr_na-c03787037

The server has one low-profile PCIe2 x16 expansion slot for controller option installation.

 

How do you connect to this USB-C PCI-E card?

 

Hope you could share more how you achieve this
