Hi all,

First of all I want to say it's been great lurking on these boards as I have found a wealth of information that came in handy when I was putting my system together.

However, I am in need of some help. I am looking to buy an internal card reader and I would like it to be USB 3.0. I have found one or two possibilities but I've run in to a problem. The case that I've bought,, has two USB 3.0 ports on the top panel. I have those plugged directly in to the header on my motherboard,

Will I be able to utilize an internal USB 3.0 card reader? Or, since I've already got my case USB 3.0 plugged into the header, am I out of luck? Are there any adapters or splitters I could use? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sorry, this should have been place in the Gigabyte sub-category. I wasn't given that choice when I wrote out my question on the side panel. If a mod could move it, that would be great. Thanks.
