you've got us all curious now..............

OK, here we go, it’s a USB Splitter/HUB of some description, no idea what for as there should be enough headers on the MB for everything, unless it’s a converter of some sort ?

Just searched that part number, it’s an internal USB hub, bit weird ?

absolutely correct, its a usb splitter, shouldnt be any requirement for that with that board

I'd guess it's there to prevent multiple internal USB headers being taken up by RGB controls and perhaps to help cable management? I can see why filling up three of the four USB 2.0 ports would be less than desirable (the WiFi card uses one too). I shouldn't think it will cause any problems having it there: the RGB and cooler controls aren't going to even approach filling the USB 2.0 bandwidth.

Looking at the MB all the USB headers are connected so looks like its used one to the HUB to plug both Corsair hubs into (the RGB and the H150i) its not a problem apart from it being in a really crap place
