Hi all

 

I built my 1st PC in 2014 and I'm really happy with how it went (I learnt alot about what I'd do differently next time). 

 

I have a Corsair Obsidian 350D which has 2 USB 3.0 ports on the front. I haven't tended to need to use them before but now I need to use a usb stick for work so I want to get them working. I have a Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Motherboard (https://www.asus.com...ds/M5A78LMUSB3/).

 

My question is this - Can I attach via an internal cable the front USB 3.0 ports to the motherboard? I've had a look at the manual and I don't think there is a mounting point for USB 3.0, but is there a way around this?

 

Cheers

Thanks for this phillpower2.

 

I've ordered a PCI USB 3.0 card and cabling to go with it.
