5 out of 5 eggsinternal mobo 20-pin USB 3.0 adapter

Pros: Works perfectly. I plugged this onto my Gigabyte UD3 990fxa motherboard and another one onto an ASRock Extreme 4 970 mobo. in both cases I'm using older cases that have a single USB 3.0 port in the front with a pass-through cable to connect to a port on the back of the system. With this adapter, I can save both back ports and plug into an internal port. i then get ones extra port internally ... which I plug flash drives into for hidden data storage or as alternate boot devices.

USB 3.0 speeds are at maximum specification. Operates flawlessly. NEVER one failure (touches wood).

Cons: No eggs off, but the plastic boot on these is a little thick. I'm glad it's there but, depending on the location of the internal USB 3.0 20-pin header, these can interfere with other components (such as the 24-pin power adapter for my ASRock mobo).

Problem was solved with a razor blade and very carefully cutting off some of the excess plastic. Just shaved off a millimeter or so and it fit right in place.

Other Thoughts: I love little hardware hacks like these. Having a speedy USB flash drive (a 64 GB Mushkin Ventura Plus, for an outstanding example) plugged into this adapter is a major bonus. It can just act as a back-up data device for really critical (and encrypted) files, such as a location for a TruCrypt volume.

Also, installing linux onto the flash drive turns it into a dual boot device, and the performance about equals most hard drives. Sometimes you'd think it was operating off an SSD.

Next project is to create a virtual box where an entire flash drive is dedicated to a virtualization of various operating systems.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks ok

Pros: Works like it should and snaps in tightly so tight in fact that when i removed it to move some stuff around in my case the plastic housing around the pins on my mobo came right off! no damage though i just gently aligned it back onto the pins and then super glued the pin housing it so it wont happen again.

Cons: A little bulky i had to shave the rubber on the sides all the way off so it would fit next to my power supply connector on my msi board.

3 out of 5 eggsIt works BUT....

Pros: Does what it is supposed to.Cheap price...sort of.

Cons: Takes up alot of space and MAKE SURE that you have at least 3 to 4 inches to the right of your mobo if your usb3 header is a right angle towords the front of the case!!! I had to cut out part of my hdd rack to make room for the 2 usb 3 cables to clear.

Other Thoughts: Should've went with an adapter that has a regular usb3 end on it connected to a cable that makes the connection behind the motherboard in order to have a much cleaner and hassle free connection. Took away 2 eggs for the backwards way that it's beveled (toword the back instead of straight or front) and because of the description being less clear about the angle.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks

Pros: Works great! Saved me from having to run the USB 3.0 cable in my Corsair 600T (white) case to the back.

Cons: Other port is sitting empty on my mobo?

Other Thoughts: Wish my case had (2) front USB 3.0 ports so that the other port isn't sitting there lonely inside the case. Could always run an extension cord to the back if I really needed it, but USB 3.0 isn't widely adopted yet.

Adapter is hard to find though, kudos to NewEgg!

1 out of 5 eggsSeems nice, but doesn't work with certain motherboards

Pros: Probably works.
Is a 20 pin to USB converter

Cons: Doesn't fit certain motherboards

Other Thoughts: If you have an Asus P8Z77-V LE motherboard, it doesn't fit in the 20 pin socket, which is right next to the Power connector.
