Sandy Bridge mobo & USB3

Hi all,

I'm looking for an LGA 1155 motherboard that has a USB3.0 header (19 pin) to connect to the front panel USB3.0 ports of my case. I have a SB CPU so I've been searching for a mid-range Z68 mobo that also has the 19 pin header but I haven't been lucky. My other option is to buy an Ivy Bridge chipset, but they're usually more expensive than SB chipsets.

Are there any SB chipsets (preferably Z68) with the USB3.0 header?

Some additional info:
- This is for my home computer (office-use, no gaming)
- I'm not looking for an expensive mobo... <$110
- my PC will have an SSD
- No plans to OC now... but may later on
- ATX

-Thanks!

Here's an excellent Z68 board with a USB3 header for the front panel. $125 AR

Great! I didn't know there were some Z68 boards that had the internal USB 3 port. $120 is still over my budget but I'm gonna check out other places (I find that Newegg.ca is more expensive than other Canadian retailers...)

I will second the Asrock motherboard. I have several and the front USB 3.0 is great.


I'm glad you like the Asrock Pro3! There aren't a lot of reviews on this Z77 motherboard - Newegg only has 15 reviews. What specific features do you like about it?
