    I am running a P6TD_Deluxe Usus Motherboard, with Intel i7 cpu [email protected] 2.67 GHZ & 12 GB of Ram. It has a Intel ICH10 USB Family Enhanced Host Controller on the motherboard.

    My question is that I do not have neither a 3.0 or 3.1 USB Ports to plug into. Is there a way to upgrade it using a USB Card or USB HUB.

    I really did not want to upgrade the motherboard at this time, but it does sometimes just crashes and reboots by itself after is has been on for several hours, but I have been monitoring the temp. of the cpu, and that has also been in normal range.

    Do you have an answer to either of these problems. Thanks, Ben

    Hi dishman777, and welcome to TSG.

    You would need to install a USB 3.0/3.1 expansion card to add USB 3.0/3.1 to your computer. They typically come with 1 to 4 ports and some include internal headers for more ports. A USB 3.0/3.1 hub added to a USB 2.0 port on the computer would be limited to the speed of the computer port.

    You should be making separate posts for each question or problem that you have. It prevents confusion. FWIW, both of your issues would normally be in the Hardware forum.

    I moved this thread since the question has nothing to do with windows.

    Thank You for the reply, I think that I will save my money and invest in a New Motherboard and CPU Combo.
