I have built a new computer and have 2 USB ports on the case, each with a cable. I also want to install a Aerocool multifunction panel in a front bay, this to has two cables. The cable on the aerocool can receed through the back of the case but to me this is tacky and takes up two of USB ports on the back which I think kinda defeats the purpose. There is also an add-on USB in the rear slot w/LED diagnostic lights that came with the MSI Motherboard, What I want to do is splice all these cables together and solder w/shrink wrap,,Is this possible. I know that USB thereticly can supply 127 devices but can I do this inside the case with only the two ports on the motherboard without any conflicts. This seems thereticly sound but I wanted other opinions before I start cutting cables.

It will work. I spliced a standard plug on and plugged it into the internal USB port on the card it's self. That gave me 4 ports on the front of the computer in a 5" bay adapter.
I guess the point is that it worked for me. I used liquid electrical tape. Comes in a can and applies with a brush. Liquid electical tape
