ok....not having one to look at I didnt realise. I think I have it now...when you have the 2 external usb slots they run into the one connection that plugs into the board......and if you cut them open you would see they go down separate sides of the plug
so I could have put the PSU down one side and the water cooler down the other side and then plugged it in..........+

Arrow you don't need to cut anything

basically yes, but you don't need to cut anything, just release the pins.

ok, thanks for the help

Just surprised that noone made up a short and relatively cheapo splitter expansion USB2 onboard header....something that goes into onboard and splits into 2 USB2 about 20mm above......I guess no money in it

Thumbs down They cause more problems than they solve

You can get them but they cause more problems than they solve. Both the PSU + cooler USB cables usually use the top row of so when you use a Y cable both end up connected to the top row rather than one to the top and one to the bottom.

To my thinking moving the pins is trivial.

i'm getting ready to start a new build, and this thread just answered my biggest question.

sweet.

<edit>

to clarify my vague post ... i am starting a build with the components listed in my specs (as soon as i get a am4 bracket ...)
my motherboard of choice has 2 usb2 headers, and a usb3 header.
having 3 components that require motherboard headers in my build, i was worried about needing to run a cable external (ewww) or run an internal splitter. I was unsure if the Corsair motherboard cables were accessing both channels on the header or just one.
now that i know i can stack pins in a single header for one of them, no worries. i'm not a stranger to splicing and hacking connectors, like the old school 7v trick, or my current push/pull air cooler with identical 92mm PWM fans spliced into one header.
but i kind of splurged on this build, to get it as clean as possible. nice to know that i won't need an extra splitter dangling around back in the case.

That is one blurry photo of the connector! I had the same problem and ordered the NZXT hub, should be in Friday. Personal opinion, Corsair should handle this better! I am sure there are many enthusiasts out there that want to monitor more than one Corsair unit in LINK. It is little things like this that make a product exceptional!

Default Thank you!

Just want to say a big thank you for the great tip on the USB 2.0 header. Last night, I manage to follow the instructions and carefully pull the cables out of one connector and moved to the other. In my case, there were 5 pins in one cable and 4 in the other. So I'm moved the 4 pins to the other one. I'm glad I chose Corsair for the cooler, power supply, fans and memory. Corsair Link sees all Plus my ASUS m/b and Samsung M.2 drive.
