    similar question - what's the best option to have 4 USB 3.0 front panel ports with this board?
    my H500M case has 4, but there's just one 3.0 header.

    Also at Amazon, you can buy a converter that plugs in the USB 3.1 gen2 port and it converts to USB 3.0 header.
    In that way you can connect 4 USB 3.0 front panel ports, 2 plug directly in the 3.0 header on the board, the other two plug in to the converter.
    For me, one of the reasons to buy this board was the abundant I/O options.

    Cheers.

    modDIY has a 20 Pin USB 3.0 Internal Header Y Splitter Cable that will allow you to use 4 ports at 3.0 speed, but I still think you can only use 2 of the 4 ports at 1 time.
