Okay so,

Blue circle - the USB-C port on my case

Red circle - the other end that I plug into MB to actually make the USB-C port work

p39asf2o.png

Yep

 

I'm picking out parts for my first pc build, and when I think I'm done, PcPartPicker gives me a note that says I need adapters for some USB on my motherboard.

Can someone link the adapters I need on Amazon, and explain to me what this means?

Basically :

- Your motherboard doesn't have an internal USB-C header, while the PC Case has a Type-C front port.

This made PCpartpicker system throws out those "warning"

 

So your options are :

1. Leave the front Type-C port unused. No Adapter(s) needed.

 

2. Buy a USB3 header to Type-E adapter. This makes your type-c port usable, but the two Type-A USB3 port unusable.

Example : https://www.amazon.com/LUORNG-Motherboard-Integrated-Connector-Extension/dp/B0D2KSJQCW/

 

3. Buy a USB3 header to Type-E adapter, and a USB2 header to USB3 header adapter.

- This makes your type-c port usable as USB3, and your 2x Type-A USB3 works as Type-A USB2 ports.

Example of USB2 header to USB3 header adapter : https://www.amazon.com/Duttek-2-pack-Motherboard-Adapter-Converter/dp/B072ZV1566/

 

edit:

- Or the #3 alternatively can also be used in a way that makes your Type-C port work as Type-C USB2 port, and your Type-A USB3 ports as USB3, as @-rascal- said below.

Ahhh...

The motherboard does not have an internal USB-C header, so PCPartPicker is telling you to convert:

USB 2.0 header -> USB 3.0 Adapter -> USB-C Adapter

 

You don't have to do that...you just can't use the Front Panel USB-C that's on the case.

 

The motherboard has a USB 3.0 header for the 2x front USB 3.0 ports, though

(AKA USB 3.2 Gen 1)

 

Your other option is to pick another B550 / X570 motherboard that HAS a USB-C Header.

I'm assuming you NEED the built-in WiFi / Bluetooth?

 

If you want to stick with ASUS ROG... ROG STRIX-XE Gaming has it.

Also, recheck your cooler and your RAM clearance.

From a glance I've given to both, they will interfere unless you position the cooler's fan more upward

If you are okay with that, all good.

I'm still a bit confused... do you think you could elaborate a little bit more?

When you said "Buy a USB3 header to Type-E adapter, and a USB2 header to USB3 header adapter."

I want to make all the ports on my case work.
I am so very new to PC building, so if you could also simplify it a bit, I'd appreciate that.

 I am guessing you want me to elaborate on where to use the adapters ??.

So you plug this one to your motherboard's USB3 header [refer to pic below], then you plug the Type-C connector from your case to the adapter.

And then you plug this one to one of your motherboard's USB2 header [refer to pic below], then you plug the USB3 connector from your case to the adapter.

 

But honestly speaking. That way you will end up with a Type-C port that has 5Gbps speed, and 2 type-A ports that has 480Mbps speed.

The only good thing about it is if you REALLY REALLY need a high speed Type-C port at the front of your PC case.

 

Lemme know if there's other explanation you want.

 

USB2 Headers Location

USB3 header location

The only way to use both (front Type-C and 2x Front Type-A) at their intended speed is either :

1. Change motherboard to one that has Type-C header

Example : One of what @-rascal- linked above.

or

2. Use a PCIE addon card

Example : https://www.amazon.com/BEYIMEI-Expansion-Internal-Connector-Express/dp/B0B156WMGC/

Thank you, I'm starting to understand a bit more now, but there's still some things I don't understand.

 

When you say Type E and USB2 & USB3, what are you referring to?? I have absolutely zero experience with this sort of thing so I would not know.

 

Edit: I've just settled on choosing a different MB, but I would still like to be informed for future reference.

So, the Type-E connector is what enables me to use the USB-C on my case?

The Type-E is just the shape and pinout of the connector.

What actually makes it usable is the microcontroller chip on the motherboard.
