Default Obsidian Series 800/650d USB 3.0 adapter

I found this link which should work with both the 650D & 800D USB 3.0 cables. Here it is http://www.espow.com/wholesale-unite...presscard.html.

I'm going to use only the pci e part and it should work. I'm ordering it and will see if it works.

A lesser expensive and more direct answer is the Silverstone CPO9 adapter for just $10.

I'm not complaining really huge here, but it sure would have been courteous of Corsair to include a similar adapter with at least the "top of the line" 800D case.
But, the CPO9 is a simple plug-in fix for a simple problem.

Yes that's a more direct answer, but I'm using a motherboard with no 19-pin USB 3.0 header. So I need the expansion card.

The computer I'm using now is actually my test/work system and I'm building a new system with the ASUS P8Z77-V Deluxe Motherboard and Ivy Bridge Core i7.

There should be a adapter to plug in the USB 3.0 to the USB 2.0 header on the motherboard.
