    Hello i have a problem. I can't use my front USB 3.0 port because i have not 20-pin on my motherboard. so the 20-pin is left hanging but i want to put it to good use so what adapter (cable or pci) would i need?

    I presume the pci option so i can slot it in, plug the 20-pin into it to power the front 3.0 and have some extra 3.0's at the back?

    [​IMG]

    Or maybe this?

    that one in the image doesnt seem to have the USB 3.0 header.

    the link you gave will let you use the ports as USB 2.0
