    PCIe 9pin USB 2.0 Header Card?


    Hey guys, i dont know if i am in the wrong section, if so please move my post. Anyways, i used up all my Motherboard its 9pin USB 2.0 Headers, and so i need more. There are two on my Motherboard, one of them being used for one of the two 2x USB 2.0 plugs, and the other one for my NZXT Kraken X61 water cooler so i can use CAM on it to change color and pump speed and such. Left i got then the 2nd plug for the 2x USB 2.0 plugs on the front panel, and a case inbuilt SD Card reader, wich also uses a 9pin Header. In case you dont know, the plug looks like this:

    What i need is a PCIe Card wich i can plop into my Motherboards PCIe slot (i got a ASROCK Z97 Extreme4 and ALL PCI slots on it are PCIe), and that it has two of those 9pin headers wich i can use. Also preferred is if there is no extra USB plug or anything else that follows along, so it should be a clean empty plate seen from outside, so no extra USB or so i do only need the headers as extension. Thanks

    I put this Internal Hub in my last 2 builds:
    4-port USB 2.0 High Speed Front-Bay Hub - Black | C2G
    It is also available in white. It does use one USB Port on the back of the computer so there's a net gain of 3 ports and has a power connector for the internal power supply.

    I've looked at PCIe Add-in cards and will get one for my next build.

    Ye i dont want that first thing, i already have alot of USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 plugs available, but on my front panel i got 2 i cannot use and a case inbuilt SD Card reader, so i need that expansion card.

    As i also already stated, i need an expansion card that features the 9pin Headers, actually 2 of them on one card preferably.

    To make it even more clear, i need THESE on a PCIe card, so i can extend what i already have.

    I think you may be limiting your options if you insist on "a clean empty plate seen from outside".

    You may also expand your options if you can live with using USB Header to USB A adapters.

    This might be an option. It mounts with Velcro.

    You could also use Velcro with a regular hub too, if you didn't want it visible from the outside.

    A thing like the NZXT one is very close to what i was looking for, thanks
