Just took a couple of mins to find out why I'm seeing it in Euro....VPN lol.
I guess we could all hope that there's a board with 2 USB 3.0 headers and get an adapter that way?
Yeah, that is the sort of adapter needed. You do hit on a way to get all three ports working this way though: internal USB hub. The downside there is you lose throughput by sharing two SS channels across 3 physical ports. And the only USB3 hub I see that can do this is a big one, so space could be an issue in the M1.
Nothing supports USB 3.2 yet, does it? That would add another wrinkle, since it would mean that a USB-C port would want both SS channels on the header to itself for the fastest speeds.
That’s the purpose of the hub I suggested.
You could do something really goofy and use one of these to get a second 3.0 header by routing two ports from the rear I/O panel back into the case via the grommets: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/1...ternal_USB_30_Connectors.html?tl=g2c539#blank
im 99% sure this wont work: that sata module gives sata m.2 instead of the pcie the usb card needs.Hi everyone this is going to be ugly but if you don’t have a open m.2 or just don’t want to pay $90 for the Delock adapter.
1-Sabrent m.2 SSD to 2.5 SATA lll adapter (EC-M2SA) Or QNINE M.2 to SATA Adapter Card
2-Almencla NGFF M.2 to Dual USB3.0 19-pin Card
3-Lian-Li PW-INC1TR USB3.0 to USB3.1 Converter
everything should only be $42 plus tax. The lian li converter link has no Specifications on the site just google PW-INC1TR for a description. That site had the best price that’s why I used it. Will this work what you all think.
Another option from Silverstone :
Designed for cases with front USB Type-C ports that utilizes the 20-pin Key A connector, the SilverStone’s CP14 adapter can convert motherboard’s older USB 3.0 19-pin internal header to be compatible with 20-pin Key A connectors. It is easy to add and there is no driver installation required.www.silverstonetek.com
For ASUS Crosshair VIII Impact will you still be able to install 2x120mm fans under the GPU, will that daughter board at the bottom block the fans?
A question for anyone with 120mm fans in their case, how close are the fans to the motherboard side of the case?
So, a 203mmx170mm Mini-DTX board leaves 23.5mm to the bottom of the case. That means there's a 1.5mm vertical overlap with a 25mm thick fan.
Horizontally, from the motherboard PCB to the frame of a 120mm fan, there's 5mm of clearance. So if there are no components on the motherboard that are over 5mm tall in that last 1.5mm of the board, you're good. If not, then yes, slim fans become your only option.
