    USB header adapters

    Does anyone know where I might find a USB header adapter such as this in the UK?

    While we're on the subject, why haven't mobo makers started putting a couple of extra USB ports directly on the motherboard?

    got a fair few lying around in a box from old cheap cases that i couldnt be bothered to wire them up on
    the £5 ebuyer ones

    the problem with things like this is adapting them so that you can actually fix them in place

    i tend to just run a usb extensioin cable from at the back of the pc as its far ewasier for connecting and disconnecting things like pen drives compared to ports on a case which are usually too close together
