Hi, new guy here.

I just ordered an AC1200 USB wifi adaptor for Dan, and was also going to get a sound blaster 3. Then noticed the BBB only has one USB port. I did some searching on hubs and found you should stick with a recommended hubs for the K8-B but I couldn't find ones that are recommended.

Is there a certain hub I should buy? 

On a side note, will the F16V4 Differential Expansion Board work with the K8-B? This is planning for next year. I'm starting to wonder what I'm getting myself into. LOL




No, you need the F16v3 expansion


Could dkulp answer this or someone else in the know?


Any hub should work, there are some USB 3.0 hubs that will cause interference with audio, so stick with a USB 2.0 hub or get the 3.0 from
If to err is human, I am more human than most people.


Do they cause interference with onboard audio or an external sound blaster?


I think it was the onboard audio. I actually had the problem and found that out. I tried replacing everything before I discovered that issue, but I am not sure if I tried it without the Soundblaster or not, so I can't say for sure.

I tried using the onboard audio and fm transmitter and it's utter garbage.  Shouldn't even be sold in my opinion
