Stupid question

How do you connect more than 2 USB 2.0 devices on a Z77X-UD5H? I know you are supposed to be able to connect at least 6 USB 2.0 devices but I only see 2 headers on the mobo? I'm sure I'm missing something obvious here. Any help appreciated.

If it matters, I'm using a 600T and connected the two USB cables from the case to the two USB headers on the mobo but now I also need a USB 2.0 header for an internal memory card reader.

Hi, From the mobo's specs: Chipset:
1.Up to 2 USB 3.0/2.0 ports (available through the internal USB headers)
2.Up to 6 USB 2.0/1.1 ports (2 ports on the back panel, 4 ports available through the internal USB headers)
Chipset + 2 VIA USB Hubs:
1.Up to 8 USB 3.0/2.0 ports (4 ports on the back panel, 4 ports available through the internal USB headers)
* In Windows XP, the Intel USB 3.0 ports and VIA USB HUB can support up to USB 2.0 transfer speed.
* Due to a Windows 7 limitation, please connect your USB device(s) to the USB 2.0/1.1 port(s) before the Intel USB 3.0 controller driver is installed.

And I see 6 USB ports on the back panel: 4 blue and 2 red. If not enough, use a USB bracket and connect it to one of the board's internal USB headers.

sorry, i should have been clearer. I am looking for a third internal usb 2.0 header. Is there one? I have the case using two 2.0 headers and one 3.0 header (via an adapter). But I have an internal flash card reader that needs another 2.0 header. Do I need to buy a USB hub or something to get a third internal header?

Yes, that's perfect, thank you! Seems like a waste of a USB3.0 header, but I guess there's no way around that. I probably should have gotten a USB3.0 card reader instead of a 2.0 card reader but I didnt even realize the card readers used USB. You live, you learn, I guess. Dont feel like exchanging it now.
