HighPoint Technologies has been a pioneering force in the storage industry, unleashing the world's 1st USB 3.0 PCie Controllers to deliver over 1.2GB/s of transfer performance, backed by a revolutionary dedicated per-port Performance Architecture design! In 2011, HighPoint launched the industry's first dedicated 5Gb/s USB 3.0 HBA's and Storage docks. Powered by an innovative new USB 3.0 architecture and quad-port HBA design, these new product series featured dedicated 5Gb/s controllers for each USB port, and were capable of delivering an entirely new level of performance for a USB-based storage solution - up to 250MB/s per port! Our RocketU HBA's and RocketStor storage docks were the fastest USB solutions on the market, but had only begun to scratch the surface of our revolutionary 20Gb/s architecture.

I wonder why 1142A the only one that has an internal header. They (or someone) needs to make a card with a mix of external USB3/eSATA6 with internal SATA and a USB header. There's so many old computers out there that could use a kick in the ass from SATA6 + USB3 board.

My ideal board would have two internal SATA6 (must support hotplug), two external USB3, and one USB3 header.

What about the ASUS U3S6 card? It was discontinued a while ago but it did solve this problem. (It didn't have internal USB 3 headers though)

The only way now is the two card solution to upgrading older PCs, but it's a lot more common for a PC to have two spare PCIe x1 slots than one spare PCIe x4 slot. You can get a VIA VL810 USB 3 PCIe x1 controller card with internal header and 2 external ports for $20 and a SATA 3 PCIe x1 controller card with internal ports for $12.
