Default Converting a usb 2.0 port on a90/mini9 to usb3.0 hack! - 03-12-2011, 08:31 PM

Mini PCI-e USB 3.0 Express Card 2 Port NEC chip on eBay (end time 25-Mar-11 23:09:11 GMT)


I'm thinking, install the card, and snip the connection to usb2 controller and rewire to the pcie board, two of the three ports.

Not sure its worth while though.

Just puchased a v13 and I haven't used my mini9 in a week between the evo and my v13.

I can't say it'd work for sure, but I can tell you that it could only work in the WiFi slot.

I don't see the point, really.
