My Motherboard (Asus Z170 Extreme4+) has 2 USB2 spots on it, my Case Corsair 760T has USB slots built in, and I have a USB3.0/3.1 expansion bay.

Long description short. I have 3 items to plug into 2 USB2 spots on my motherboard.
Case USB
Expansion Bay USB
Corsair LINK for my H100iGXT

The question I pose to the community is simple. is Corsair Link worth the loss of 2 USB ports on the front of my case?
I carry 4 cellphones 1 of which does use USB-C which my expansion bay supports. so I can easily see filling 6 USB slots on the front of my machine.
But Corsair link does seem appealing but does it really pose value?

Help a guy out.

Plug it in, set the pump to performance mode, then unplug it.
