Added USB 2.0 & 3.0 ports to my Z77X-UD5H

In reference to my build discussed here.

 

I added my extra USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports to the headers on the Z77 MB and have them going to the back.

This gives me 4 additional USB 2.0 ports and 2 additional USB 3.0 ports. Both are working well.

Both add-in had plenty of cable to reach the ports and I ended up looping the USB 3.0 cable to the header and using a cable tie to keep it from whipping around in the case. You'll also notice I've installed the additional Segate 3TB's and the WD Green 2TB.

Here's a pic of one of the Seagate 3TB with the Lian-Li anti-shock mounts before I plugged it into the HD Cage. You can see the other Seagate 3TB already mounted in the bottom of the cage.

All the new stuff in and the case buttoned up again

This is an awesome build. Nice job on this. One suggestion, you might want to throw in a nice aftermarket cooler or a Corsair Hxx in lieu of the factory heatsink. May not help but it would look cool through the side window.... :D
