    Check this out. It has 2 USB 3 Ports and 1 USB3.1 port and audio jacks and the cables plug into your MB.

    I am looking at buying that same board for my next upgrade.

    I now take it that you're looking not for USB 2.0 connectors, but for USB 2 motherboard headers. What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Right, there's only a single USB 2 header on the board. (I checked further: that's the "midboard" connector referred to in the specs. It supports two USB 2 ports.)

    A quick look at shows adapter cables that take the USB 3 header into a 10-1 pin male (like the USB 2 motherboard header). There's only one USB 3 header on the motherboard, though. You say want three USB 2 headers.

    I don't see any adapters that would plug into one of the rear USB2 ports and provide a male 10-1 pin output. (A little kludgy, as you'd have a cable from outside going back into the case, but it would work.) Failing all else, you could make one. (That's intended as a serious suggestion.)

    You can get internal extension cards with 7 usb connectors. I bought one as my motherboard only had 2.

    Was my response (post #12) too long?

    I'll repeat: "pixiegurl83" is clearly look for USB 2 headers for front panel cables and a built-in card reader to plug into. No need for additional external USB 2 ports.

    I suggested a USB 3 header to USB 2 header adapter. That brings the USB 2 header count to 2. I don't know how to get to 3 or more.
