    USB 3.1 front panel connector cable?

    Has anyone had success in finding a cable for connecting to the "USB 3.1 Front Panel Connector" ? It is like nothing I have ever seen before...

    It is USB 3.1 GEN 2 and your case would have to support it.

    I understand it is a gen 2 port. But it is not a standard connector from what I can find. What I'd like to see is either a list of cases or a list of front panels that connect to it.

    Hi ElgatoDeNorte

    Here are some cases from Newegg that support USB 3.1.

    Asus has this on their website: https://www.asus.com/Motherboard-Acc...1-FRONT-PANEL/ , but I couldn't find it anywhere online even in store.asus.com.

    The ASUS USB 3.1 Fron Panel uses a SATA Express connection though.

    After considerable digging it looks like there are a (very) few cases that use this specific connector, most just do a type C to Type C though. The only standalone front panel I could find with this connector however is from Lian-Li out of Taiwan (very helpful people by the way). They also have just a "whateverthehelltypeofconnector" to USB 3.1 type C cable, which I've ordered and should get here in a few weeks. Would be nice if there was more info and/or product from Asus on this instead of my having to hunt it down all over the interwebs....

    The Lian Li cable is available for 20 EUR in Germany. Seems like I have to get this one, since there are no other options available south of buying a new case for over 200 EUR. Asus really could have put that cable (+shield for slot installation) into the package.

    Got mine direct from Lian-Li here...

    http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pw-ic01nh45/


    It is somewhere in-transit at the moment

    Oh, and checking some of the listed cases that have "USB 3.1" on the front panel, half of them just have a USB type C female end (EVGA for example)
    In fact in a call to EVGA, they told me to get a USB type C cable and attach it to the back I/O port, route it through the case and connect to their USB Type C female front panel "header". So a case saying USB 3.1 does not guarantee a connector like on these mobos.
