    Hey Guys, I have a USB 3.0 card in there with power that runs to one of the DVD drive's sata ports, but it doesn't seem to power a 2TB external USB 3.0 (self powered) drive.

    What is a good card that does this?


    Cheers

    I would suggest you have a look at this thread;

    Read through it, the 1st post is aging and a little outdated. At the moment, my personal favorite is the HighPoint RocketU-1144C. There is a full review of the card in that thread. There are several cards available that should do the trick for you.
