USB Mobo Expansion Options

  1. I have a LanParty UT mobo, great board, no problems. However, I have the pins for the USB block on the back of my PC and a second set of pins for the front set of USB ports. However, I have a 5 in 1 USB card reader that requires pins but no 3rd set of pins on the mobo to connect. Anyone have any suggestions on how to expand USB connections (meaning pins as I can't use a hub).

    If you have a free PCI slot on the motherboard, you can install a PCI USB card that comes with internal pins.

    Or, you could just wire a standard USB connector to the cardreader and plug it into a normal USB port..
