    Hi,

    how do you guys manage, I dont have enough USB 3.1/3.0 ports on my motherboard, Would a USB hub (Powered) solve my problem?

    Thank you

    It was just an example.

    Bet computer shops in your area also have. Shop local.

    Good luck, sure you will find something.

    How about this one? Rocketek 5 Ports Usb 3.0 to Expansion Card-5 USB 3.0: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics, or would you recommend one of Amazon?

    Thank you by the way for the advice.

    Not sure about that card.

    They mention something about 19 pin USB.

    I think they are taking the MB header and splitting it. You notice where it slides into expansion slot it does not look like an electrical connection.

    Ya was wondering the same, which would you recommend? Can't seem to find any good ones on Amazon and the other sites I use (Scan and Overclockers) most of them are out of stock.

    Motherboards with a USB 3.0 19-pin header on the motherboard normally can be used with with a front panel or back panel adapter to provide 2 additional USB 3.0 ports.

    The card being discussed provides 5 USB 3.0 ports on the back panel. However it still needs the USB 3.0 19-pin header on the motherboard for the 5 volt power needed for these USB ports. That is because the PCIe connector alone can't provide enough 5 volt power for this board.

    If you look on Amazon you will find similar boards with fewer USB ports that do get power from the PCIe connector. They do not need any additional power.
