USB3 with Gen 2 Drobo?

My Drobo Gen 2 is currently connected to my pc via USB2. (A temporary period with Firewire proved to be unreliable). I’m keen to obtain faster read-write speeds so if I installed a USB3 PCI card on the pc would a USB3 cable fit the Gen 2 and would I get the benefit of full USB3 speeds?

Any help appreciated.


Since the older Drobo does not support USB3, it will only connect at USB2 speeds.
