Hello,
I need a 20 pin USB 3.0 adapter that will allow me to plug into the header on the Sabertooth Z77 at a 90 degree angle. My case has the cable leading to the front ports but there is not enough room to connect to the board straight in. Any ideas? Thanks.

So essentially you want to "lengthen" your USB 3.0 header ? That maybe hard... Seeing as how most cases have USB 3.0 headers that are flakey or go kaput after a short while of usage... Lengthening them will only degrade the signal quality as it is.

You might want to consider something like a 3.5" bay USB 3.0 hub.

Anyways, can you post a picture of the situation so I'm not misunderstanding you ?
