Need special adapter for 5pin usb on case.

  1. I did not pay enough attention to all the connectors on the new board I bought. I swear I saw internal usb connectors but I was wrong. Anyway I need to be able to hook up a pci card with some more usb and then hook up some special connectors that will hook up to the usb on the back and have the 5 pin male inside. Where can I find these?

    USB cables (both 2.0 & 1.0) are all 4 pins. Where did the 5 come from?

    I can't really make that much sense from your post, but assuming stuff..

    If you want to connect some USB ports to some pins on some USB controller, then there is no such ready-made cable. The pinouts are different on different boards - you have to get the pinout from a manual and arrange the individual wires correctly yourself.
