USB 3.0 Hub

Hello All,
I recently built a new rig with an Asus Maximus IV Extreme. The mobo has a 2nd USB 3.0 controller. I'm really looking for a USB 3.0 hub which will connect directly to the controller on my mobo. Anyone happen to know of a decent hub or what the cable would be called for the connection to the mobo?

Also, I should note I would prefer not to go with a PCI hub due to my PC set-up/location.

Thanks all!

    Are you looking for the 3.5" internal drive bay with usb 3.0 or a hub that expands an existing usb 3.0?
  2. Think he wants an adaptor to use the usb 3.0 header on the mobo

    I know AsRocks 890fx deluxe 5 has one included in the box http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASROCK-SKT-AM3-890FX-DELUXE5-S-L-5200MT-s-MOTHERBOARD-/220775397129?pt=UK_Motherboards_CPUs&hash=item33673d3709
    but I struggle to find the adaptors for mobo headers online, lian li do a nice one lian liuc 01 but can I get one in the uk?.....
    theres a few that got to pci slots but I dont think thats what Op is after
    you can get pci ones that feed to front bay though Op,it doesn't have to be at the back of the pc :)

  3. Thanks for the input guys. I think I'm looking for something like this, just in a USB 3 flavor.

  4. Trust me hehe, I've searched, the thing I linked is about the best option,
    or lian li's version, you can unscrew the front plate and disconnect the plug from the board, then just plug it into your mobo's usb 3.0 header,
    the only other way I can think of is wiring it up yourself using a pinout guide, but I'm not that good at soldering :)
