Motherboard with USB3 header

Motherboard with USB3 header
« on: December 17, 2011, 03:55:47 pm »
Are there any motherboards with USB3 headers. From what I have found so far all are connections out the rear. Looking for internal connection to front panel on new Fractal Design Define R3 case.

Hi fk227021960,  ;)

You find a Gigabyte motherboards with link:
http://www.google.com/cse?cx=005789087734754618442:jg8newzqzdg&ie=UTF-8&q=Renesas%20D720200%20chips#gsc.tab=0&gsc.q=Renesas%20D720200%20chips&gsc.page=1


Maybe use this adapter :

Fractal Design USB 3.0 Upgrade Kit for Define R3/R2
http://www.fractal-design.com/?view=product&prod=62

As long as Intel chipset will not natively support the usb3, it will not make much sense to have a header on the motherboard.
Unless the chip or circuit for header is developed by a third party. Like 2 x Renesas D720200 chips made by NEC on Gigabyte motherboards.

I do not find products about USB3 cable in Gigabyte site:

Thanks for the work you have put into the listing there Gloup_Gloup. I am sure there will be some members who will find it useful when looking for devices. It's a shame Gigabyte don't have their own offerings in this market other than of course those that come included with certain motherboards.

Hi Dark Mantis,  ;)

I must admit that it took a few hours. But I find the quality in my answers.

Again, thank you. I greatly appreciate your encouragement.

I hope the community of this forum (and other forums Gigabyte) will appreciate the information I have provided.
