Those bay hubs require a standard A-B device cable and a PCI USB adapter card with an internal female A socket:
Unfortunately, these are only rated for USB 1.1 and are getting rare. The current 5-port models are all USB 2.0. You would need a hub rated for that unless you would be happy with only normal USB speeds from the hub. In that case, get yourself a USB 2.0 adapter:

: : : I'm sorry...that doesn't make sense. Every 5.25" bay hub I've seen uses an A-type "blade" connector or a 4-5 pin harness. Your hub has a male B connector?

: : : : I use a front-mounted USB hub that connects with a Type-B USB connection. The cable would be useful so that you don't need to run a cable from the outside-back of the case into the case to plug in the hub. I was able to locate the exact cord I needed, but it had a Type A plug on the other end, not a Type B.
