Default USB 3.0.....

Can anyone recomend me a good USB 3.0 add-on card?

I'm looking for one that has 2 external USB plugs, and internal USB 3.0 header, and if possible another internal usb plug.

I need the internal header (same header that motherboards use) for fast internal USB 3.0 card reader.

Hey nekro! where have you been?

anyway I found these cards in newegg. Rosewill 2-Port USB 3.0 PCI Express Card Model RC-505

is standing in the front with most of the rating but only has 2 slots.

Koutech Dual Channel USB 3.0 PCI Express Card w/ USB3 ICC & 15-pin SATA Power Connector Model IO-PEU235 has only 4 ratings but has 4 slots

All these are PCI Express 1x

Problem with USB3 is that the MB header are still fairly recent and were NOT part of the standard.

Newegg has LOTS of USB3 cards, but none fits your description.
They have either 2 or 4 channels, so, you will get a combination of either:
- 3 external USB3 + 1 internal
- 2 external USB3 + 1 internal header (for 2 more USB3)

Most are on PCIe x1

Anyway you tried searching through your MOBO manufacture’s site to see if they have add-on USB 3 cards? Who knows maybe you might get lucky.

nekrosoft13,

I have been using the HighPoint RU1144A PCI-Express 2.0 x4 USB 3.0 Controller Card for almost a year now with no issues at all. It x4 pci-e so you don't need an extra power connector for the card.
