I can't find it on my damn motherboard!! Does tuf b550 plus have usb 3.1 gen 2 port for front panel usb type c?

Is there an adapter I can get?

:( nothing sadder than not being able to finish your build to your satisfaction.

    It has the header pins for 2x USB 3.1 Gen 2 on the board right beside the power connector. That's where you attach your front panel to - whether that will be type C is not the mobo's concern, but the case's.

    @Fast-Nop this is the male wire from the case. I can't find any ports on the MB

    Uhm no, it doesn't work that way. See the connector that is on the left side of the power connector on the mobo, that's what you need.

    That's meant to be used like this: https://amazon.com/RIITOP-Female-Co...

    That's the kind of pin your case needs to provide. Or you can use the slot adapter above, or something like that for the front in a 5.25" slot.

    That's the end that usually goes in the front panel. The pinout for the motherboard is on the other side and looks like this

    @SortOfTested Though the blue end is the wrong gender for this mobo.

    Time to make a trip to the electronics store.

    Just a guess, this is some sort of adapter to plug 3.0 front panel ports into a 3.1 host and the blue end looks like what's normally on the motherboard, i.e. you plug the case's header into the blue end of this cable.

    The mobo has a 9-pin header. Not these 20 pin ones. I pray I don't need 2 adapters.

    @codecrow The mobo does have a 20 pin header at the left side of the power connector.

    @Fast-Nop thats already being used by another front panel usb. 😭

    Id prefer not to, but I think I may need two adapters since there isn't anything that connects from internal front panel header to 9 pin USB on mobo.

    Almost $40. To get a single USB type c port working. Fuk that.

    Alright to clear things up:
    The wide blue 19 pin is ONLY for sub 3.0. This plug can not handle the 3.1 gen2 speeds. Then there is a new small connector for USB 3.1 gen2 and depending on what you want/have there's different keys for that. An adapter from the new 20/40 pin to the wide blue will work but you won't get full USB 3.1 gen2 speeds.

    And yes buying an adapter board from wide blue 19 pin boy to new 20 pin Type-e port will be enough to connect your front io. Mind that it will only run at 3.0 speeds though. Otherwise you will need an addon card.

    @fuckwit sorry, I should have updated. I already figured everything out. I bought a pcie usb 3.1 gen 2 a-type for $24. This will allow me to use all front panel ports

    @fuckwit When the converter bundles two USB 3.0 ports, you'll get USB 3.1 speed...

    Although it's hard imho to find something that fully utilizes 5 Gigabit / 625 MiB... or the 10 Gigabit / 1.2 GiB

    It's less in practice, yes. But still very much for everything common
