Front Type-E Expansion Card, PCI Express 3.0 2X Interface / USB3.1 GEN2 compatibility on motherboard

Go to solution Solved by shaz2sxy,

the boards in the link have the USB 3.2 header for the case USB C port so no need for an expansion card 

Hello.

I want to buy the expansion card in the title so that I can have a USB type C header for the H510 case by NZXT. I am not very knowldgeable on how expansion cards work, and I just want to know if it will be compatible with the motherboard I am planning to buy. MSI B450 Tomahawk Max Motherboard.

If anyone could tell me if the expoansion card will fit plus a 1660 Super I plan to install on the motherboard, that would be appreciated.

why not get a motherboard with the header on already?

Do you have any suggestions for motherboards that have a header and are around the same price point? I couldn't find many for the same price or close

Thank you, so the expansion card only works with B550? or do these come with USB type C headers?
