I want to use them to connect the keyboard/mouse transmitters, so I need to purchase the correct bare USB ports.

Just in case someone will want to make the 1,25/4 USB cable, here is the wiring.

Consider the yellow as white. ))

The headers on the board are documented in the Technical Product Specification, which is available here: https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/mini-pcs/nuc-kits/NUC8i3CYS_TPS.pdf.

The one place that I know sells compatible cables is Micro SATA Cables (a.k.a. GORITE). They are U.S. based, but they do ship internationally. Here are links to the pertinent pages on their site: 

Micro SATA Cables also has a presence on Amazon. Here are links to pages for these same products:

Hope this helps,

Thanks a lot for the useful links, n_scott_pearson!

But I'm afraid I won't get the cables in the reasonable future from this store due to the pandemic situation.

As far as I've understood from the TPS there are 1.25/4pin connectors, so I'm going to find them near me.

Thanks a lot!

I ordered two of the 8 inch cables from Micro Sata Cables on 10th august. I'm in the UK. They arrived yesterday, which is pretty speedy from the US. Kudos to them, and they work perfectly. I use a wireless mouse and keyboard each with a small USB2 receiver. These now live inside the NUC on the end of the USB2 extension cables, freeing up two much more useful USB3 Gen 2 ports. Perfect!
