During the purchase of parts and components of my current build I realized my MOBO does not have a USB 3.0 header on it.
My case has several USB 3.0 ports on top. But unfortunetly I cannot use them unless I connect to a 3.0 header.
My MOBO does have 2 3,0 ports in back. But it would be more practical to use the ones in front ( as well ).
So that leaves me to getting a USB 3.0 add-on card right?
I've noticed some plug directly into the MOBO and thats it.
I've also noticed some plug into the MOBO but also need a molex connection for power.
Can anyone help elaborate on this for me.
Or if you have any knowledge or experience with USB 3.0 cards I would appreciate it.
*I'd like to avoid needing to install any software.
These are some I've found.
Has header. USB 3.0 header. Sata connection. And molex?
Are these examples of what I'm looking for?
*But again the molex or sata connection on some of these cards confuses me?
1. Does a molex or Sata connection need to be connected as well as plugging into the MOBO?
