Customer Feedback

1.Cable connects ASUS USB3.1 Gen2 header to two USB3.1 Gen1 devices – Is not for USB3.1 Gen 2 use Septem.

I had to try ASUS Z370 MOBO’s internal USB31G2_E3 internal connector – bottom line: not worth the effort, unless want more USB3.1 Gen 1 ports. The cable connects securely to the MOBO U31G2 header and connects to two USB3.1 Gen 1 devices. Cable does not take advantage of ASUS Gen 2 pins for CC1/CC2 and SB1/SU2.so really does not support USB 3.1 Gen 2. The cable is less than 12 inch in length, so just reaches front panel device. The cable was connected to a USB splitter cable and recognized two attached USB 3.1 thumb drives. Configured the BIOS for ASMedia front panel USB 3.1 Gen 2 (Enabled) and selected USB3.1 front panel instead of PCIeX1. Crystal Disk Mark speed test using the USB 3.1 Gen2 header and this cable gave same results for a USB 3.1 Gen 1 device, as expected. So if expecting USB3.1 Gen 2 performance from this cable – forget it! Cable does not take full advantage of the ASUS U31G2 connector, waiting for Gen 2 devices before trying a different cable.

2.Allowed me to connect my GEN2 (USB C) case port to my miotherboard’s GEN1 USB 3.1.

Check what product I’m talking about above ^. This is to fit a case USB-C cable (3.1 GEN2) to a motherboard with only regular 3.1 connectors (GEN1).

My MSI Z370 has 2 GEN1 USB 3.1 connectors (on the board), but no GEN2 connectors (they’re smaller and look a bit like a SATA connector mixed with an old school Firewire). I have a new NZXT 510i case that has a USB C port on it. However, you need a GEN2 connector on your motherboard for it to work. This product solves that issue as it used the 2 channels of the USB 3.1 port (5G each) and mixes them up to create a 10G lane, and it works perfectly. I tried to measure the speed but honestly it goes so fast I can’t find a big enough file to check… It transferred a gigabit file to my Pixel 2 phone in what seemed to be about 6-10 seconds.

Now, the only thing to check is that you have a free USB 3.1 port on your motherboard, and that since the adapter is at a right angle, that it will physically fit. I have 2, and the first one would have not fit with the RAM (see top port on picture), to use the second one, I had to move my GPU to a lower port (see picture, if I used the top PCIe port it would have been covering the port which would still allow to fit a flat case 3.1 connector, but not this angled adapter).

3.Works With USB 3 Type C Header.

Cable did what I had hoped it would do. It allowed me to use the previously useless USB 3.0 Type C header on my z390 Dark Mother Board. I tried using a USB 3.0 Type C to USB 3.0 header converter cable, but it didn’t work. So what I did was use this cable to plug into my Type C header and then I also purchased a USB 3.0 Type C to USB 3.0 Hub, which gave me 4 additional USB 3.0 ports. So, I’m very happy with this product. The cable is pretty long, although it was just a bit too short for what I wanted to do. No big deal, I found a work around.
You can see in the pic I attached this cabled plugged into my USB Type C header on my mother board in the upper left corner.

4.It worked with a new motherboard.

My Supermicro desktop motherboard included a type C header for USB 3.1 type 1. This extension cable allowed me to add an additional USB type C port to the back of my PC. It worked correctly when I connected it with an HDD dock. The expansion slot bracket wasn’t a perfect fit for my case but stayed put securely enough to be used.
