Z390 Aorus Master - MoBo Case USB Headers
« on: September 14, 2019, 01:30:15 pm »
Simple question really...

Can both of the case USB header sockets be used together, or are they mutually exclusive?

My case uses the USB 3.0 header, so I want to make use of the USB 3.1 header to add an additional USB-C port to the rear, via a suitable cable plus back-plate.  I have found such a USB 3.1 mobo cable with USB-C back-plate listed on eBay.

Greetings,
Each header works independently.  As long as you use a compatible cable (proper PIN out) and port.  The header doesn't care where the port is located.  So "mutually exclusive" according to your definition.

Cable and back-plate arrived today and work perfectly, providing a second USB-C port to the Aorus Master, without affecting the four USB3/2 ports on the case panel.  So the two case header ports are NOT mutually exclusive and can co-exist.

Apparently you and I have different ideas about the definition of mutually exclusive.

Mutually meaning together
Exclusive meaning independently

So as I said, you can use any one or more headers together and each provides independent support regardless of the port type.  USB 3.1 /3 /2.  They can co-exist mutually and operate on their own exclusively.  What I get for trying to use your term I guess.  You confirmed exactly what I said.  :D
