USB-C card without extra power needed

This is in the right place, I hope.

I'm looking for a USB-C expansion card that really doesn't require any additional power. I found a good one on Amazon a while back but couldn't find it again.

Any others you all recommend?

Why no additional power?

Just connect the PSU SATA power cable at the rear of the card.

I just wanted one that didn't have the need for it to clean up cable management.

you might struggle with that as most expansion cards for USB C require a power connection due to the power output of the plug's standard, expecially for USB 3.1 gen 2

i did find this 4-port card however it might be substantially out of your price range

EDIT: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B074QGBXSP/ref=psdc_229185_t3_B07L8KCQPT this two port card is much cheaper
