    I am working with a case that has the new internal 3.0 header, but the MB does not have 3.0 compatibility. I want to be able to use the 3.0 port as a 2.0 port (like I do on my 650D), but to do so requires an adapter.

    Lancool bundles the exact adapter I need with their new White Knight Series cases. Here is a pic the exact item I need:

    Also, NT1 has posted another version of the adapter that would work for me, please look at it pictured below.

    If anyone has a spare one that they can sell me inexpensively, please PM me. If you know where I can buy one retail for a decent price, please post in the thread. I really want to avoid cutting the wires and soldering.

    Thanks!

    What kind of cable do you have for connecting the 3.0 port?

    The new Internal 3.0 header. Its the blue 20pin header that has been popping up on a lot of cases and motherboards recently (as opposed to the kind that looks like a USB cable that you fish through and outside the case).

    I'd look for the higher quality version seen here. I got one of the ones in your original post with a case I use in a build for a client, and the pins didn't exactly fit in the USB 3.0 cable. I really had to force it in to get it to work , and even then it didn't go all the way in.

    Unfortunately it doesn't seem like Lian-Li sells either seperately yet.:(

    Any more information on where that pictured cable came from?

    Edit- Oh, thats from LianLi as well. They need to sell them separate.
