Can it be done? I don't have a USB 2.0 9-pin socket available on my motherboard, but I have an unused USB 3.0 19-pin socket. I need an available socket to power an internal PCI Express add-on.

What on earth do you have that needs to pull power from a USB2.0 front panel header? Sounds incredibly sketchy.

They make cables to do it yeah. Can't fathom why something that needed power wouldn't just use a molex though
Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.
