Windows 7: Adding a USB 3.0 Pci Card

Adding a USB 3.0 Pci Card

I would like to add a USB 3.0 pci-e card to my system. There are several to choose from but none that I find have a 'header' to bring the USB to a port on my front panel. Those ports are now fed by the USB 2.0 header on my MB. I would sure be nice if I could have a USB 3.0 on the front.

Does anyone know of such a card that will permit to do this.

Thank you.

I have never seen one like you are looking for either. But you can put the card in and use a front panel USB 3.0 that will fit into a drive bay and use the pass through cables to connect to the rear ports.

Here is one that uses the new 19 pin internal connection and brings 2 ports to the front.

Thank you. I was just about to do what you said and up popped a suggestion by Phone Man. I think I like that approach better because it is cleaner.

Thanks again
