Installing a PCIe 2.0 x1 USB 3.2 superspeed in cupertino2 H61

Hi everyone

 

I want to provide my humble p6-2065c with USB 3.2 superspeed ports and I found this  https://www.amazon.com/FebSmart-Self-Powered-Technology-No-Additional-FS-U4L-Pro/dp/B07Q2BHHRM/ref=s...  What is your opinion? Do you think it is going to work? Any problems?

It looks good. Yes, if your motherboard has a compatible socket.

 

There seem to be both "low-profile" and "standard-profile" spines, which is good.

the "OP's" post says he wants USB 3.2, but the link is for a 3.0 card which will not do 3.2 speeds

 

next a pci-e 2.0 x1 slot is not going to reach usb 3.0 speeds (it will be close however)

 

last, USB is a SHARED BUS, meaning that each device plugged into the card "shares" the total bandwidth so if you plug two usb external hard drives into this card each drive will fight the other trying to use the available bandwidth resulting in each drive xfering data rather slow

 

if you have a pci-e x4 slot, there are usb 3.x cards that have plx type chips that allow each port to run at full speed but these cards start at 50.00 for 2 ports and over 100.00 for 4 ports

Yes. Thank you very much DGroves. I have to set up with not having a USB 3.2 20Gps superspeed port because I don't have an x4  (or x8) pcie slot but I am going to reformulate the question with the same goal in mind: having USB connectivity with the maximum bandwidth. Because I have 3 PCIe 2.0 x1 idle; could I buy three USB 3.0 adapters and with an unknown gadget add up the output bandwidths in one stream of 15Gps? Some examples of these cards:

Well. After short research about this subject, I have found a little bit old news

replacing the system is the only real solution, 150/200 dollars will get you a used turnkey system that is faster with native usb 3.0 and more pci-e 3.0 slots and the ability to boot from nvme (hp z240)

also look at the HP z600 (with v2 motherboards not v1 boards)

 

or a dell T3600 https://www.ebay.com/itm/114919744782?hash=item1ac1c0250e:g:xzIAAOSwIZtgog5I
