    Some mobos only have two usb ports on the port side of the board but have extra headers. I've been looking for an adapter plate that occupies a pci plate with a pigtail(s) for the extra headers on the board. I can't see to find these. Anyone know who has them? Seems like it would be a fairly common accessory. I dont want those that fit on the front of the case or a hub. Thanks.

    Hywhobo, yes, I can find those everywhere, even WallyWorld. The board is already configured with extra headers, so I don't need a card. All I need is something to get from the headers on the board to a pci bay. Thanks though.

    My case has two USB ports in the front behind a small flip-down panel, as well as the four in the rear on the board. I like it :)

    Glad you found the part you were looking for
