Good evening.

I have two peripherals with USB C support, the microphone is BOYA model BY-HM2 and Webcam Streamcam Plus from Logitech, this one supports 1080p 60fps only for the USB C, otherwise got o 30 fps. The microphone has USB A and USB C cable. The motherboard that I will use is A520M-ITX/ac from Asrock brand, it has USB 3.2 Gen1 on the from the USB A and USB C back panel and in the internal header.

My MB: https://www.asrock.com/MB/AMD/A520M-ITXac/index.br.asp#Overview

My initial plan is to get a USB C Splitter, an adapter of one USB C male to two USB C females. The most closest that I find is this one:

The problem that I see is that doesn't support video, only audio, and I wanted for the webcam.

My other idea is, but a very big work around, is to get an USB header > USB C header > any USB C Adapter or Splitter from the internal Motherboard.

Any tips?

You do not really need USB-C speed for the microphone. I'd just plug the webcam to the USB-C and the microphone to a separate USB-A.
On reddit they answered the same thing. Is just to reduce the cable clutter.
I have and started to use an USB 2.0 adapter, is 9 pin usb 2.0 to two female usb 2.0. I put two wireless dongles, a mouse and keyboard, and for my surprise is working fine, even in a closed desktop. In the past they hadn't work with other cases. Maybe is because my case has semi open side panel and is not metal. Now I wanna see the 3.2 gen 1 header for MB.
