    As the topic suggests anyone know of a Intel motherbaord that is capable of supporting USB 12V ports? I would perfer to have at least 3 or 4 of these ports and support a C2D processor.

    I tried newegg but no luck, I am now trying tigerdirect.

    For anyone interested it is something like the greenish bluish port in this product.

    The first review refers to them as being proprietary connectors of AeroCool's PowerUSB system. It doesn't sound like they are something you'd find on a motherboard. What do you need them for?

    Yeah, I read the article but as you said it was for that Aerocool product.

    Anyways they are proprietary on compaq, dell, IBM, and hp motherboards but those are very expensive!

    I was looking to see if I can find something like ASUS, DFI, or some company like that, which makes motherboard with these ports on as proprietary. But i think i am outta luck because I tried all the places I usually buy from such as newegg, tiger direct, frys, and zip zoom but no one seems to have it so i will just get one from the big name Dell, Hp/Compaq, IBM people. Thanks for taking the time though man! I appreciate it.

    Hmm...I doubt it as it has that mini usb and i think my application requires regular USB. But thanks for the suggestions anyways guys i am just gonna get a regular POS machine with text overlayer, and confiure it...this should be fun haha.
    Once again I appreciate the suggestions!

    And for those curious it is for a POS (Point of Sale) machine, I really didnt need it but I was looking for a one box solution in which i can put my custom camera system in as well. But its all cool. :D

    I think that's a mini-USB adapter.
