Dual Cable too Short for Motherboard - Help!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi,

I'm currently building my first PC, and I've come across a hitch. Two of the USB cables are attached to each other (even insulated together, so I can't pull them apart), and I can't attach one without being unable to attach the other.

I've attached pictures below. 5613768960342213278%253Faccount_id%253D3

Thanks in advance for the help

Potentially, get a different case. If that is not an option, i’d Reccomend plugging the USB 3.0

Alright, thanks for the advice. Are there any extensions I can buy to potentially plug in both?

What happened if you plug just the USB3?

I think you can plug just one and have all ports working (since usb are backward compatible).

I think the USB 2 header meant for the motherboard without USB3 header.

Oh, really? That's nice. I haven't finished building the PC yet, I still have to install the SSD and HDD, and fix the cable management, my dad nearly vomited when he saw my current job
