Case that support internal USB 3 Header

Recommended Posts

Anyone know if there are any cases out there that support the USB 3 Headers in the newer sandy bridge motherboards? I am not talking about the pass thru method of running a cable to the back of the case. I am talking about the header that you would plug in for the front ports.

Some of the ASUS board come with an adapter. But there aren't any cases out right now with the actual USB 3 female header yet. I believe corsair is going to retro fit all of their case and will ship them later this month or early May.

This was a disappointing fact when I purchased my new case. I was looking for a case with a USB 3.0 header up front and decided to just get a cable that I will attach to the MB. Not pretty but will be easier.

My Lian Li case is set up for USB 3.0 ports in the front. However, I can't find a header to run from the MB to the front ports. If you know where to get the 20 pin (or is it 20+1) cable please do tell.

My new motherboard, Gigabyte GA-H55-USB3, has two USB3 ports on the back of the MB but the internal headers are all USB2.

Looks like none are available now but it seems some of the case manufacturers are working on this either as an accessory or updating their models and it just a matter of how soon they become available.

Just noticed this adapter has just become available from Lian Li. CU-01.

 

 

That looks to be what I need. Hard to tell because I can't see what the header plugin looks like. I will have to investigate further. Thanks for sharing.

 

 

Edit: It may not be it after all. It calls it a 20 pin connector. My Asus MB calls it a 20-1 pin USB3_34. Counting the pins on the MB, there is only 19. I guess that is 20 minus 1????

I think it's right. If you click on the picture in the listing there's another picture and in the background there's a picture of it plugged into a board and the board has USB3_34 printed on it.

 

I hope it works, I've ordered one already :unsure:.

Looks like you are right. I missed that. Where did you order it from?
