SB-E, USB 3.0 and Case question Tags: New Build Cases Sandy Bridge Processors USB3 Systems Last response: May 31, 2012 7:39 AM in Systems Share dcmp May 31, 2012 3:55:47 AM OK, last question before I order (I hope). If the Sandy Bridge-E processors don't support USB 3.0, is there any reason to have a case which has integral 3.0 ports? If I get a usb3.0 card is there anyway to make those ports active?

Check the motherboard your getting if it has USB3 internal headers. m 0 l dcmp May 31, 2012 7:39:37 AM Ahhhh, I understand now. The SB-E doesn't support USB, meaning you can't boot from USB (if I understand another thread). But I checked the mobo, and it does support. Thanks! m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
