USB Port soldered on the inside of a PCI USB Card?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Okay so I got this PCI USB Card for free from a scrap yard, and oddly enough it had a USB Port soldered on it on the inside, so I was wondering what's this port for?

clearly for putting USB devices on the inside of your PC instead of the outside

My sound system costs more than my PC.        Check out my S340 build log "White Heaven"        The "LIGHTCANON" flashlight build log        Project AntiRoll (prototype)        Custom speaker project

Actually pretty useful.  USB receiver for Keyboard, headset, etc.   

Tell my tale to those who ask. Tell it truly; the ill deeds along with the good, and let me be judged accordingly.

Pretty sure it's for something that won't be removed often, like a USB Bluetooth or wireless adapter or some flash drive.

Yeah, basically just an extra port for anything small you're not planning on removing or swapping out a lot. Actually pretty handy if you're limited on outside ports, which is most likely the case if you're already buying an expansion card.
