Z97X Gaming 7 suitable for NZXT Media Card Reader?

Z97X Gaming 7 suitable for NZXT Media Card Reader?
« on: July 12, 2014, 08:29:17 pm »
Would the Z97X Gaming 7 support the NZXT Media Card Reader extra USB ports?



The NZXT Phantom 530 cse has 2 USB 3.0 on the front panel, which are connected to the USB header on the Z97X mobo already.

If I add this card reader, where would I plug in the USB cable we can see in that image?

Thanks.

Okay, thanks, I was hoping there was a solution to have both working, guess not.

I solved this one. I took the card reader out of my antec900 case and found that it fitted into my phantom case just fine. The bonus is that it has a single USB port plus card reader slots but in,only  uses a single internal USB slot on the mobio, result!
