Just don't like the look of that adapter and a few negative comments there, wish Asus or Intel would make one.

Something else to pay attention to is that most of these 3.0 cards have a molex connection on them, so don't be tricked into thinking that the molex is an internal header.

Not sure if you're still interested in a standalone USB 3.0 card w/ motherboard header, but NCIX now has tock again....
