My System Specs

Default

I've been doing some more digging, and really not having any luck finding in stock cards with proper motherboard headers on them... WTH is up with that??? It's not like USB 3.0 is new tech... if my 6 month+ old 990FX Sabertooth MB has the spec on it, adapter manufacturers should have no problems coming up with it.

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

Silverstone SST-EC01+ 19 Pin Dual Port USB 3.0 PCI Express Card - Silverstone Technology - SST-EC01+

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....

Just got mine in and it works like a charm. Just don't forget to install the drivers.... :)

Unfortunately I don't have any USB 3.0 devices to test the actual throughput.
