From my understanding a USB 2.0 port you will only get 2.0 no mater what connector you use. The motherboard tells that port weather it's 2.0 or 3.0 no mater how you hook it up. They do make USB3.0/PCI cards that might be what you are looking for but your motherboard will still have to be USB 3.0 capable. If I have misunderstood you I'm sorry.

Hello Yowan your picture is confusing the issue. I guess what you are looking for is a USB3 PCIe card with an internal socket for USB. If your front USB are USB2 then you can forget it there would be no point in such a card as you would plug said socket into the mobo. However if your front USB are USB3 standard then it all makes sense and you may well find a card with a socket for internal USB3 connectors, I am looking bear with me

Yes that was what I was looking for, the front USB is USB2.0
I thought if I plugged the front cable in an USB3.0 card it would reach the USB3.0 speeds but that seems to be impossible.

You are correct. Your USB connector is USB 2 only. Most of the add in USB 3 cards have 2 USB 3 ports out the back. I have one in my system and use this StarTech cable and have it on my desk for easy access. It has a 5ft cord.

The only approved internal connector looks like this:

And then you would need something like this:

A lot of new cases have a USB 3 port but use the external connector that plugs into the ports on the back of the PC. Some newer ones do have the new internal connector. There are also internal to external adapters if your MB has internal and the case has external.

The good thing about all the USB 3 ports is you can still use a USB 2 device on them.

Now that I have totally confused you, have a great day.
