    EPIA USB 2-port module not fitting.

    I purchased this EPIA-USB-ADAPTER http://tinyurl.com/8g59q


    EPIA-USB-Adapter
    - USB header board
    - Works with any motherboard
    My EPIA MII-12000 manual refers to this item as a "USB 2-port Module" and says it connects to pin-headers for USB3/4, but it would be impossible. There is no room near the pins because of the heatsink. Even if I removed the heatsink, they are just not compatible. The two ends are both male.

    Looks like you need a ribbon cable with 5x2pin female connectors on each end. No, I'm not sure where you'd get such a cable. Seems silly that they would sell the adapter without one.
