This product provides USB 3.0 connectivity for motherboards with USB 3.0 header.

The 19 pin connector is great for motherboards that support this connection and the extra length of the cord should fit any full sized tower with extra to spare.

This adapter when removed from the front panel cage works well on my computer cases wire side.

I used this extension panel to bring two motherboard USB 3.0 connections to a front 5.25" drive bay in my new desktop PC. It's heavy duty, dual USB molded connector fit perfectly and snugly in an ASUS P8P67 Pro (Rev 3.1) motherboard's dual USB 3.0 connection header.

The cable length was long enough to reach a top 5.25" drive bay in a Cooler Master RC-922M HAF ATX Mid Tower Case. Since the Biostar CABLEUSB30 panel comes as a 3.5" profile, it was first mounted in a SilverStone 3.5" to 5.25" Front Panel Bay Converter panel (model FP55B) and then mounted in a 5.25" front drive bay in the Cooler Master case. Note - If used without a 3.5" to 5.25" converter, the box includes all the hardware you'll need to add the two USB 3.0 ports to a rear expansion bay on a desktop PC.

It's great to have these two front panel USB 3.0 ports in addition to the two rear USB 3.0 ports already on the ASUS motherboard's edge connector.

I am extremely pleased with the quality of this product.

Best way so far to get new USB 3.0 Ports into a Case with only USB 2.0 Port connections. No Hub with electronics just Ports! Installed in Cooler Master SGC-2000-KKN1-GP Storm Scout ATX/MATX/ITX Mid Tower Case (Black). For proper positioning, could only get screws into last 2 holes on side of mounting bracket. Unit sits forward in Case Drive Bay for Front Flush Mount. Mount is secure, no wobble.

Would like to see this Part offered with Mount for (2) 2.5 inch Drives Mounted behind USB 3.0 Bracket. Hope to use this with a SILVERSTONE SDP08 3.5 to 2 X 2.5-Inch Bay Converter. Not certain yet if they will fit in same Drive Bay. Would make excellent use of space for USB 3.0 & SSDs in a Desktop.

Installed on GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard (rev. 1.x). Has 2 ports available through the internal USB header (Keyed 19 Pin F_USB Header). Otherwise, try Ordering Gigabyte Part #: 12CR1-FPX582-01R - 2 Outlet USB 3.0 Female 3.5 in. Bay Front Panel with Cable to IDC Female Header Connector. This part from Biostar is less expensive & easier to find!

I bought this just for the parts, even though could have used it as is and been perfectly fine. I had other plans for the pieces before I ordered but needed the USB 3.0 to board component for one thing and the 3.5" bay adapter for another. Not only were the parts delivered within the stated timeframe, the price very reasonable, the components worked as they should. I am satisfied, Amazon has done it again.

It's pretty tough these days to find front panel/rear USB 3.0 Connectors that actually connect to the Motherboard USB 3.0 header. I shopped around for quite a while until I find the Biostar USB 3.0 Aluminum Front Panel CABLEUSB30 - Black. Most front panel USB 3.0 Connectors don't actually connect to the Motherboard! There's actually a cable that runs out the back of your case and connects to the rear USB 3.0 ports. Yes. I'm not kidding!

The Biostar panel is well-constructed with a long cable. It looks nice and mounts in a 3.5" bay. If you don't have a free 3.5" bay it can be used in one of the slots for a rear expansion bay and it comes with the adapter and screws needed.

I'm thrilled that I found this item and at such a great price!

Works just fine. Speed good. It appears to be well constructed. Mounting bracket won't work in my Cooler Master case 3.5" slot. It would lack an inch or so of coming out flush with the front cover. Luckily I had a 3.5" to 5.25" adapter. Then it worked fine.; just added $5 to the cost.

The main reason I purchased this USB 3.0 front panel is because of the aluminum construction. Many front panels are made of plastic and are flimsy, not the case with this one! The 19 pin connector is great for motherboards that support this connection and the extra length of the cord should fit any full sized tower with extra to spare. All mounting hardware is included and I like the fact the aluminum bracket has brass inserts to strengthen the mounting threads. Just remember this unit is meant to be placed in a 3.5" bay, not a 5.25" bay. You will need another adapter if you plan to mount this in a 5.25" bay. I highly recommend this product and would purchase it again.

If your computer case has front panel USB 3.0 and wants you to do a pass through method, then this is the adapter for you! That is of course if you have a 19 pin USB 3.0 header on your motherboard. I reciently built a new computer with an ASUS Deluxe Intel Z77 ATX DDR3 2600 LGA 1155 Motherboard P8Z77-V DELUXE and Corsair Obsidian 650D Aluminum Mid Tower ATX Enthusiast Computer Case - Black CC650DW-1. This mother board did not come with a front panel adaptor like the ASUS P8Z68-V PRO Motherboard that I used to build a computer with last year. So I had to use an adapter to not have a pass through which is a waste of 2 ports, not to mention ugly looking with such a clean case. At first I opted for the Silverstone Tek 19 Pin USB3.0 Adapter Cable - External to Internal (CP09), but that one was very short and not flexible. It put undue tension on my motherboard. This adapter when removed from the front panel cage works well on my computer cases wire side. It is very flexible and does not put that same bad pressure on my moterboard. Even if you have a different case, this would be easy to hide somewhere inside the case. Until cases start coming out with 19 pin USB headers then this is the best you can get.
