July 15, 2016 | By NZXT | PCDIY

The NZXT IU 01 allows builders to expand the USB ports of their PC by adding three new internal ports and two additional external ports.

This allows users who’ve run out of USB ports on their PC to connect the latest Kraken all-in-one liquid coolers, GRID+ V2 fan controllers, and HUE+ lighting systems.

The IU 01 is also powerful enough to power any device that connects to a USB header.

WHO SHOULD INSTALL THE IU01?

Small form factor motherboards don’t have a lot of USB ports available for builders who choose to install a lot of accessories inside their PC.

If you’ve recently built a PC using a small form factor case like the NZXT Manta, you’ll definitely want to install the NZXT IU 01 USB Expansion Board on your motherboard.

Not only will this simple device let you install five new USB devices, it’s also extremely easy to do.

WHAT’S INSIDE THE BOX?
