  • Cheap case with USB 3 support

    Hi guys, Im looking for a cheap mid tower case which would support usb 3.0 as my new mobo supports usb 3.0. Does anyone have any case in mind ? or will my APEVIA X-Dreamer case support usb 3.0 aswell ? Ive got the
    GigaByte GA-A75M-D2H A75.

    Cheers

I think its like an external port which we attach to the mobo, this way even if our case doesn't have the 3.0 usb port, we could use the external 3.0 ? im not sure though lol

        They come in 3 types.

        Onboard - on the back of the io and not part of the case.
        PCI/PCI-e - expansion cards like these - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...troller+Cards/
        Case - plugs onto the mobo headers with something like the blue part in these - http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Cable...roductId=46347

        If you get a usb3 case then it will usually have one of those blue plugs on the end of the case wires that goes onto the mobo somewhere.

            Ahhh the Zalman case looks nice, i guess im gonna have to replace it with my old case but the question is is it worth it ? or spending a bit more on https://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Comp...roductId=44604 would be better because i might end up getting a better psu and card in near winter.

              Well what im asking is if a case doesn't have a usb 3.0 port, and the mobo supports 3.0 then how does it work out ? or am i just too stupid because i think the motherboards usb 3.0 sticks out of the case and we can just join the usb 3.0 hub in it ? LOL

                Here I have USB 3 ports on the back of the motherboard. Guess what, you can plug things into those.

                There's a USB 3 header on that motherboard.

                Unless you have all your front drive bays full, a cheaper option might be to buy one of those combined card reader, USB, eSata boxes from the likes of IcyBox. But one that can take a connection from the USB3 on the motherboard.
                Win 10 Pro 64-bit + Asus Z-170-K + Intel i5-6500 + 512GB Samsung M.2 PCI-e SSD + 16GB DDR4 2400MHz Memory
                Win 10 Pro 64-bit + Asus M5A88-M EVO + AMD Phenom II X6 + 8GB Corsair XMS3 1600 + Radeon HD 6450
                Win 10 Home 32-bit + Asus M2N-SLI DeLuxe + AMD Athlon 64 X2, Dual Core 5400 + 4.0 GB Memory + NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT
