Just saw that the Asus 1155 P8P67 will have a header to plug in you front panel usb 3.0. I'm planning on getting the haf x for my SB build soon. And I'm wondering if there is a way of converting the old plug(the one that went in the back of the motherboard) and making it connect to the new header? I hope that makes sense. Also on that vid where I linked he called it a onboard sata 3. is this the new standard for the usb 3, or is asus just connecting it to a sata 3 port. Thanks
One problem with USB 3.0 is that, to date, there's no common pin-header layout for internal USB 3.0 connectors, but it appears that ASRock and ECS have taken things into their own hands and have come up with a suitable solution.
Case builders cannot adopt a universal solution as of yet. A USB 3.0 header would have 18 pins, while a regular USB connector would have 8 pins.
You cannot convert 2.0 to 3.0. If you buy the parts, you may be able to replace the receptacle and cable.
Some motherboards that have a USB 3.0 header, include a front panel bracket for USB 3.0.
Sorry, can't view your movie here at work.
