The problem is the you need to add host controllers as you add usb 3.0 which get to be expensive. PCH supports usb 2.0 natively so you dint need to add controllers until you add more than 14. This is why manufacturers dont just get rid of usb 2.0, high cost of the 3.0 controller chips. If a board doesnt offer usb 3.0 then there is nothing to connect a bracket to. If you take a look at that p8z68 review I just did you will see two chips like this that run 2 ports each.
