I recently updated my motherboard to gain 3 PCIe 3.0 slots and USB 3.1, I am already using 2 od the PCIe slots (GFX card and PCIe-to-m.2).

 

But for the life of me cannot not ginf that much USB3.1 hardware, specifically -

  • USB3.0/3.1 hub where the lead is long enough to be placed on my desk and dosent have a fixed lead with w/USB-C connector (which wont plug into the USB type A on the motherboard)
  • USB-C female to USB type A cable - I have yet to find either cable or adapter.
  • Chassis mount USB-C or USB type A connector/s - so I can retro fit them into the top of the case.

The other issue I/we face is that of unbranded USB-C cables and the threat of poor quality control or missing/incorrect resistors.

Regarding the first link, Benson dosent have good tings to say about them in the link above.

 

Hi Amazon profile has some useful info though -

There are some cables and adapters listed which he gave 5 stars, I was thinking of buying a USB-C sniffer, but at £179 I'll pass.

Yeah I just noticed that lol.

Although, he has reviewed some adapters. You could check to see if they are available in the UK

Startech is a known brand with good bang-for-buck ratio, so looking through Benson's reviews for one now...
