I have a Cosair cooling kit that is Cosair link enabled running in a case with a bunch of fans and a PSU and storage in a jerry rigged DAS setup... no motherboard. The Cosair link system requires a USB header on the motherboard to plug itself into, not for power but for software control.
So I want to get an adapter that basically takes the connector from the Cosair link system and converts into a regular 2.0 USB connector and plug that into my laptop so i can use the software to control the fans. i.e. bypass the motherboard that would normally be in the case with fans and storage.
I looked at the header expander from NZTX but that expands a motherboard USB header, it does not adapt a female USB connector coming out of a device (like Cosair Link Commander) to a regular USB connector.
