Connecting to internal Mobo header/usb

Post by daitern » Mon Nov 21, 2016 7:45 am

Hi there,

I bought the B2021-BK , the 5.25 inch drive bay panel with usb connectivity, I would like to know which type of cable do I need to connect to the internal header of the mother board a 9 pin header or 5 pin ? And if so will I have problems with the drivers whatsoever since the included data cable is a standard usb to usb mini. Also if I don't find a one cable do conversions will work , I mean internal header cable to standard usb with adapter to mini. Sorry for writing too long But I need to make a clean cable manegment in my pc so external cables are a no no. Thanks again.

Edit: The display is an LK202

Hi there daitern,

Welcome to the forums.

I understand you would like to use an internal motherboard cable to connect your PC Bay insert display to maintain clean cable management. We offer an internal 4 pin to mini-B USB cable that you can plug directly to your motherboard, and feed to your display. The cable can be found here: https://www.matrixorbital.com/product_i ... ts_id=1124

Thanks that was really fast , btw does it supply power also aside from data or do I still need to feed power with the FDD cable as well? Thanks again.

Hi daitern,

The cable can supply power from the motherboard directly to the display. The four pin header on the cable will connect directly to Ground, Data +, Data-, and 5V. There should be no need for additional cables.
