    USB 3.1 header on Z270 Motherboards - What cable do you get for this?

    For the USB 3.1 Front connector on the motherboard, what cable is that? Where do you get it?

    I may be wrong but if you case has front panel USB 3.0 connectors and dongle cables, that you would plug them into the 3.1 header on the motherboard. However, and I must caviat that I have never actually seen and USB 3.1 motherboard header; only seen the 3.1 connections at the I/O plate.

    There are actually some cases out there like the Inwin 805 that have a USB 3.1 front panel built-in. There should be a cable to connect directly to the header on your motherboard.

    If you have an older case that "only" has a 3.0 front panel, it should plug into the 3.1 header anyway. You just won't get full speed.

    All the propaganda clearly states that this is a little before its time as 3.1 front panel headers are not yet mainstream. There are a few bay devices on the market but not many. The USB 3.0 on the front of your case plugs into the USB 3.0 header on the MOBO. The connectors are not at all close to being compatible.

    This is why I stated that "I May Be Wrong" up front

    I came across this product that clearly shows the male version of the 3.1 MOBO connector.

    http://www.lian-li.com/en/dt_portfolio/pw-ic3dah45/

    Looks like I will have to be patient and hope new devices adopt this 3.1 MOBO header.


    I could also live with a cable adapter that goes from a 3.1 header to a 3.0 header and live with the reduced speeds. But I haven't found one yet.

    Newer cases will probably come with the proper USB 3.1 cables for the header.

    I am in the same boat. The cast I am using is the Phanteks Enthroo Pro M. Has USB 3 front panel. My mobo has 3.1 header for front panel. What I am going to do is use the ASRock USB 3.1 Front Panel Front USB 3.1 Panel which will allow me to use the 3.1 up front.

    Hello

    You do realize the front panel you linked to does not plug into a USB 3.1 header?

    What board are you running that has a 3.1 header with no 3.0? The hero, formula, code, apex, extreme all have a 3.0 header.
