USB 3.1 Header help

Hey there,

 

new to the forum, I recently built my first pc and I used this Aorus b450 board with a Ryzen 5 3600x. I built it in the NZXT h510i case and the front IO on that case has one usb 3.0 and then one usb c port, however, my mobo does not have a usb 3.1 header to connect the usb c port. I’m curious as how I could get the usb c port hooked up. Doing some research, it looks like I could use this to my one usb 3 header on my mobo and then connecting something like this to be able to use my front panel usb c and then connecting the front panel usb 3 to the other end of the splitter. Would this work, or is what I’m talking about not possible? Thank you for any help!

The second adapter you linked (the USB 3.0 to Type C) header is definitely what you need.

The first adapter linked is also what is needed, I just don't have experience with those specifically. So can't confirm if those work just fine.

 

Assuming the first adapter (splitter) works as intended, this setup will indeed work !

Okay thank you! Glad to hear I’m on the right path.

I know right? I didn’t look into this before I got my mobo, but hopefully this work around will in fact work.

Allegedly the 'U' in 'USB' stands for 'Universal'. Somehow I doubt this!

let's count with USB guys!

1.0.. 1.1.. 2.0! 3.0! no wait, 3.1 Gen 1.. 3.1 Gen 2.. No wait, 3.2 Gen 1.. 3.2 Gen 2.. 3.2 Gen 2x2.. USB 4.0??

 

Pro tip: if you need to learn to count, don't take USB, Windows or Apple as an example.
