  • Remote pci host

    Is there such a thing to allow you to have an external hub for pci cards?
    I have just built my first carpc in an old amp case, It only has usb1 and I need usb2, there is no room for a pci card, what I thought about doing was to take an old pci card, cut the bottom of it, solder wires onto the pcb then get a riser and solder them on to that pcb so I can mount my pci card in its own box. Basically a pci plug on one end of the wire and a socket the other end.
    Would that work? or is there anything like that available to buy.
    I know the cable can't be to long I'm just talking about 6 inch or so.

      The only thing is that they charge a lot for shipping, anywhere else sell them? (with cheaper postage)

                  Yeah I would have just bought a proper case for the job but I had an old amp sat about and thought it would be good to turn it into a pc LOL
                  It looks realy good Just need to finish making the i/o shield for it.
                  If I like the carpc Idea Im going to build me a better one
