Want to add USB 3.0 to Pavillion e9107c-Desktop

HP Recommended
Pavilion e9107c--Pro#NP238AA
Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)

I want to add USB 3.0 (4 or 5 port) to my Pavilion Elite e9107c;  this is a stock computer with no modification up to this point.

 

Any suggestions on a PCI/e USB 3.0 card would be great (Amazon maybe?)

 

Will the card need it's own power?

 

I feel comfortable installing the card but any sort of short walk-through would be helpful...please.

 

Thanks in advance!!

Hi,

 

The following link shows its specs

 

   https://support.hp.com/vn-en/document/c01775359

 

It has 3 PCIe slots therefore you can use PCIe - USB 3.0 card such as

 

   https://www.startech.com/au/Cards-Adapters/USB-3.0/Cards/4-Port-PCI-Express-PCIe-SuperSpeed-USB-3-Co...

 

(There are many around and cheaper too).

 

Normally this type of card won't require more power from a PCIe slot. Some cards many not be P-n-P, therefore you need to be sure you can get drivers from vendor (they used to supply CD but now we have to download).

 

Note: I tested few of them with my old desktop (already threw away, only laptops now) : we won't see they run at full USB 3.0 speed.

 

Regards.
