    CrossHair 8 Formula has 2 USB 3.0 headers, I use both with my Lian Li O11D XL.

    yea thanks, but I'm sticking with my hero wifi... Was expensive enough for a mobo.
    I'll just opt for the USB3>USB2 converter then...*

    The problem is that I only find one 20pin connector on my motherboard, which made me wonder why Lian Li is even offering 2 sets if most of the motherboards don't ship with two 20pin slots anyway?

    You're missing the point re-read what I have provided. There are two 20 pin connectors on CH8 that match the Lian Li requirements for the 4 ports total... You don't need anything.

    you'll call me stubborn, but I'm simply unable to locate the second 20pin connector on my motherboard.
    Here's an excerpt from the manual. 4 eyes see more than 2...

    Here is the manual
    https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/m...-FI_UM_WEB.pdf

    Motherboard Layout 1.1.2 Items 11 & 13

    Goto 1-18 then 1-19 ... I own the bloody board why would I tell you something untrue ?

    There are no boards to my knowledge with 2x 3.0 Gen 1 20 pin header.
    Your whole paradigm has been wrong from the start for the case and the boards.

    There are no boards to my knowledge with 2x 3.0 Gen 1 20 pin header.
    Hi, the docs I posted were quoted from exactly the same document.
    I just wanted to have a confirmation of the above quote.
    So, indeed, there's no 2 x 3.0 Gen 1 20 pin header on this board...
    What got me confused was the fact that the case was in fact inducing such a possibility by offering 2 sets of 20pin USB connectors.
    Maybe they just wanted to offer the choice of placement of a single set : top or bottom of case, but not both together...

    Anyway, with a 20to9pin adapter, I'll be able to make use of the second set of the case USB ports ....

    Thanks for your help.
    PS: are you satisfied with the board?*

    Well having played with a lot of motherboards. It's a solid choice. MSI BIOS & VRM's of B550 I'm quite impressed with. They're really bringing the 'A' game to Ryzen AM4 platform allthough avoid anything by any manufacturer with 'carbon' in the naming and 'prime'. If I was buying today my choices would be different but that should not take away from CH8 which is as stated still a solid X570 choice.

    In summary although said this more than once now. The motherboard and the case line up - they need no additional connectors and work with each other completly without problem. The documenation for the USB 3.0 headers on the motherboard and the case, both match each other, and will work without anything additionial being needed.
