Adapter from usb-c cable to something else

Hi everyone,

I bought the NZXT case H150, in that case there is a usb-c port on the front but on my mobo i dont have any usb-c header (its a Asus Strix B450-F).

There is any possible change to convert the usb-c cable in something and still use it as a usb-c?

 

Thanks

Yes, you can adapt it to usb 3.0 5gbit, but the adaptors are pretty expensive.

 

Try searching for usb 10Gbit internat to usb 3.0 adaptors or somethin like that.

There is the Lian Li PW-INC1TR and Silverstone CP14, that turn a USB 3.0 header into a 3.2 Gen 2 (USB type C) header (at 5Gb/s speeds of course), but you only have a single USB 3.0 header, which you already need for the 'normal' USB port on the case.

So you're either going to need to:

- Get a board with two USB 3.0 headers (and one of those adapters)

- Get a board with a USB 3.2 Gen 2/type c front panel header

- Forget about the USB type C / forget about 'normal USB' and get one of those adapters

- Look for a PCIE USB type C front panel card (which I have not found yet).

You can get an adapter but do you need a type c high bandwidth port ?

If you don't really need it nothing will happen if you don't plug in the type c port

Yeah, something like that. Thanks for the link!

A shame the design is kind of lame, with the header on the bottom (rather than on the 'far end' of the card), as someone else points out in one of the reviews.

True dat but it should work.

 

 

Also there are many similar options with more USB type A 3.0 ports, so if this route works for you, look for 1 with a good feature set.
