    I used a piece from an old mainboard.



    Now I have 2 USB2 ports in front of my housing


    Cheap (I had a few of them still laying around) and using a dremel tool its easy to fit

    I bought some USB A-A cables from an overstock sale here at a local computershop, 3m A-A for about $2 / piece.

    Cutted them into 2 pieces of 1.5m each

    this one has an external USB connector on it and a seperate power connector, and you can take it apart easy for fabbing into something.
