However, that leaves some of you asking two very reasonable questions: If you already have a fast and reliable computer why would anyone want to buy a new motherboard for just those features? And second who really wants to reconfigure a perfectly working system just to add USB 3.0 and SATA III support? By simply adding in a controller to one of your empty and hardly used PCIe x1 slots, you are able to gain just what that new motherboard offers, but at a fraction of the price. As it just so happens to be, our new friends at MUKii have shipped us a solution to rectify the issue, or at least the USB3 issue. The TransImp USB 3.0 PCIe card gives you the 5 Gb/s transfer speed of USB 3.0, as well as 5 volts to supply your favorite USB-powered devices.
