asus rog hero z790 usb c

Hi everyone, I have a Hero Z790 motherboard. The problem is that I have two USB C inputs. In my case, the motherboard allows me to connect only one. Is there a kind of splitter to insert into the card so that I can connect both USB Cs? I try searching but I can't find anything

thanks but I was looking for an adapter to insert into the motherboard which would then allow me to connect the USBs of the case in order to have both usb c ports usable because the hero z790 only has one slot for the usb ones do you know if something of this kind exists?

Have you tried using the Thunderbolt ports? I don't use mine, but I think they will work as normal USB C ports as well. If not, you can get USB C hubs. One of those might be a convenient way to add more ports. 

Depends on your case, but you probably have a USB C port on it as well if you have connected the connector from the case connections to the motherboard. 

So in total, you should have 2x Type C ports and 2x Thunderbolt. 

 

Z690 Hero, BIOS 3401, MEI 2345.5.3.0, ME Firmware 16.1.30.2361, 7000X Case, RM1000x PSU, i9 12900K, ASUS TUF OC 3090TI, 2 x 16GB Corsair RAM @ 5200MHz, Windows 11 Pro 23H2, Corsair H150i Elite AIO, 4x Corsair RGB fans, 3x M.2 NVME drives, 2x SATA SSDs, 2x SATA HDs.

my case has four normal USBs and two USB Cs I managed to activate the four normal USB ports and one USB C but I don't have any other free inputs to be able to put the last USB C in fact the wire is not connected inside the case my idea was to put a splitter inside the motherboard that would transform the input into two inputs so I could put both wires

OK, well just to say that you can also get USB-A to USB-C convertors, male and female, so you should have plenty of options depending on how you prefer to do it. There are also lots of extension cables for USB A/C that terminate with just about every type of USB connector you will ever need. 

If you have connected you case sockets to the motherboard using the blue connector, then I would expect both USB C ports to be working. My case only provides a single USB C socket. If you have two, I think they should be split out by the case itself. Doesn't the manual for your case explain how to connect to the motherboard?

I don't know what connectors your case has, but is it one of these that you need?

So that should plug into socket #9 on your motherboard diagram. Are you saying that you have already used up the socket on your motherboard and need another one (hence the splitter)?

Yes, I basically keep two cables like the one in the photo but only one input because the others are already occupied. I was looking for something that would transform the last input I have into two separate ones to be able to put both cables.
