Hi. Sorry if my terminology is not exactly correct: I have a Thermaltake Core V21 case, and an MSI motherboard (A68HM-P33 V2); My build works fine, but I haven't connected the USB ports on the case (and the jacks) to the motherboard. I am not sure the best way to do this or if it is even possible?

I saw there were PCI cards that might be able to accept the 'internal USB 3.0'

Sorry, if it wasn't clear, thre is nowhere on my motherboard to connect the 'internal USB3.0' cable from the case. The only space I have left is one PCI slot (a bit of a tight squeeze as well next to my passive nVidea graphics card)

My internal usb 3.0 is basically a 2 x 10 grid (with one of the corners filled in)

I only have 4 USB ports on the back of my motherboard which I already use with my mouse, keyboard, headphones and WiFi adapter; I don't know if splitters are the best way forward, but might be my only option? I definitely need more USB ports as I plan to do some basic audio recording (that will require one USB audio interface as we as a USB port for a MIDI keyboard), and in anycase, I would have to remove one of my devices just to use a flash drive or external hard drive.

Thanks
