Will the H510 connector fit on the Tomahawk?

Yes.

If it does... at what speed?

5Gb/s (USB 3.0/3.1 Gen 1/3.2 Gen 1 speed default)

Are there any major feature I'll lose from Gen 1 to Gen 2 aside from the speed? (idk... not a usb guy... thinking being able to power a monitor with Gen 2 and not Gen 1?

It's really only speed as far as I remember.

 

See page 34 of the motherboard manual for all the info:

Is the front header of the Tomahawk compatible with the connector on the H510? The one on the Tomahawk is Gen 1 while the H510 has a Gen 2 connector... I can't find anything online about the connector (don't know what to call it xd). If their connectors fit... I'm assuming it should work but with Gen 1 speed?

Answers I'm looking for:

  1. Will the H510 connector fit on the Tomahawk?
  2. If it does... at what speed?
  3. Are there any major feature I'll lose from Gen 1 to Gen 2 aside from the speed? (idk... not a usb guy... thinking being able to power a monitor with Gen 2 and not Gen 1? xd)

P.S. This is my first forum post... sooo sorry if I posted it in the wrong section... also I did it on my phone sooo idk if the layout would be fine (gonna try to make it organized as best as I can)

the internal header?

Type E USB Header = the internal part that connects to motherboad

Type C = mostly used in devices

 

edit: think it has 20 pins?


Things I need help with: *new* 3900x core clock issue

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.
