Default More than Two USB Headers on Board?

basically, my case has two USB ports int he front, and most boards have two USB headers to connect them to. Are there any that have more than two? I'm hoping to get one of those multi card readeers to stick in the 5.25inch bay...

What about the same type of thing but have it connect through Firewire?

Heh, you misunderstand - I'm looking for a board with more than two, I already know all my boards have two.

Right, on the board itself? I'm not talking about external... The plugs you connect to the case's ports is what I mean.

yes...there are 2 headers on the board, each of which supports 2 USB ports (ie-8 total usable pins/header), for a total of 4 ports

Gotcha, thats not what I meant. I was hoping for a total of three headers, one for each case port and one for something internal like an internal card reader.

Two. Two sets of wires leading to the board. There are some built in USB ports in the back but obviously thay don't use headers.
