USB Hub, good or bad?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey guys!! ;)

 

I'm upgrading my computer, and I dont wanna all the USB 3 and 3.2 ports with devices such camera, mousepad, etc... is it bad or it's harmful somehow to the board to have a usb hub to one of the USB3 por and connect everything there?

Does it will cause lag to the mouse, keyboard or headset?

 

If you think its a good option, what should I get, USB type-C hub, a normal USB2 or an USB3?

It's not damaging. 

 

It shouldn't really cause any input delays with mouse and keyboard, but to be honest, I'd have them connected directly to the PC rather than through the hub. 

 

USB C is just a connector, so it doesn't really make a difference. Go for the highest version USB you have available for the hub. You could go for a multi-purpose one that has things like an SD card reader as well if you want.

Thanks!

So, main devices to the motherboard, and the rest to an hub, is it better?

High bandwidth and power ones to the motherboard, mainly (unless you get an externally powered hub). 

 

For the mouse and keyboard, it shouldn't make a difference, but I'd personally have them connected directly to the motherboard because it makes me feel better.
