    Apart from overpriced they can be handy. Both my current and previous motherboard had a single internal USB port, very handy for wireless receivers. I use them for bluetooth dongles.

    Make your own by using an existing rear usb pci bracket card that comes with most mobo's.............take it apart and you have the Mobo interface with the USB female end......same exact thing......ghetto mod style.....I've done it with USB and firewire....works fine. :D

    Hope it helps. :)

    Are you sure it is an IR reciever? I'm pretty sure IR recievers require line of sight, meaning the reciever won't work from inside the case.
