I have my corsair commander pro and 2 lightning node cores running through that without issue.   they also have a newer model but I had this laying around

if you can find an internal usb 2.0 to usb 3.0 it should work.

 

unless you have a node then you can use a stander usb cable. mini or micro dont no witch

 

the card would work too just need to be internal thow
