hi guys,

i cannot seem to find the micro usb to usb header anywhere, can anyone point me to the right direction please?

i need to this cable to connect my cooler master argb controller small to my usb, i have watched a video and this guy plugged the micro usb to the controller and at the other end it plugs into the motherboard, didnt know you could plug it to the motherboard. i thought i had to plug it to a usb, no wonder it didnt work.

many thanks guys

It's the same, each motherboard USB header can supply 2 USB ports, but the 9-pin connector also can be used for single USB port too, you just leave the other half blank.
ok so i just plug it n the 5 pin top row?

il have a look for that now as the one you linked isnt available.

thank you again.

still dont know why i need to plug it to the usb header, do you know why i cant just plug it to a normal usb port?

whats so special about usb headers?
Honestly, I don't see the different, the USB port is used to communicate with the unit (for example firmware update, control from third-party software...). Using the motherboard USB header might help with cables management as the unit is intended to stay somewhere inside the case most of the time.

yeah i can see the cable management to make sense, i didnt think there was any difference either.
i have tried the single usb port in the middle of the motherboard and that didnt work so i tried the back and the side and still didnt work.

im just hoping that cable will solve the problem.

i have tucked the controller away and its bit of a hassle trying to get to it so i want to use the software e instead.
