H100i RGB Platinum and HX1000i

I'm building a new system and bought an H100i RGB Platinum and an HX1000i PSU.

Since both of them come with a cable that should go to an internal USB2 header and my motherboard (MSI MEG Z390 ACE) only has 2 internal USB2 headers I have a problem since one of the headers is already used by the USB2 ports on the front of my case.

Is there some other way to connect all this or will I have to choose if I want to monitor the HX1000i or the H100i?

Thanks!

After giving it some thought, maybe I'll just use the header where the USB ports on the front panel are connected since I still can use the USB3 ports on the front panel.

Does your motherboard have 2 x USB2 internal headers? Does it also have an USB3.0 internal header? Does your case have front USB3.0?... Cause then I’d use the front USB 3 and then have the two 2.0 headers free on the motherboard.

Well I’d check with Inet, they’ll most like have the NZXT one.

You could also maybe get the Corsair Commander Mini and control everything through that.

Will check out the Corsair Commander Mini though.
