USB 3.0 MB and case with only 2.0 ports.
Mar 19, 2011, 11:52 PM
Hello and thank you for any answers that are given.
My question is how do I get the 3.0 outside my case? If there is a panel that would fit in a drive bay, I would be ok with that.
MB is this
case is this
Again, thank you for any answers.

Right now it would only be an external HDD. I don't know what else I'll be getting but I want the ability to use anything on the market.

Something like this would work:
SIIG JU-H40212-S1 front panel USB 3.0 4-Port Bay Hub $50
Personally, I prefer the external powered hub like:
Koutech IO-HU430 4-Port SuperSpeed USB 3.0 External Hub $40
as a better way of keeping things organized.

Another case front panel hub:
Koutech IO-FPH431 4-Port USB 3.0 Front Panel Hub (3.5") $35

Thats the type of item I was looking for but reading the replies on these items is dissapointing. Looks like I need to wait until someone makes a better hub. Thank you for your help.

That's a smart move IMO.
It's not like you'll have a shortage of USB 3.0 ports anytime soon.
