Thank you for contacting Intel® technical support. I will be more than happy to help you.
I understand that you want to be able to use the internal USB of an Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK, if possible as external USB.
We do not have any official recommendation about this. However, you can check about related products in the GORITE™ website. In there you will find USB expansion devices. Please check the next link for options designed specifically for the Intel® NUC Kit NUC6i7KYK: http://www.gorite.com/intel-nuc-products/skull-canyon-products
Please bear in mind that GORITE™ is an Intel® partner, and it is not a manufacturer endorsed by Intel®.

GO-RITE manufactures bare cables that connect to the internal headers and expose the USB2/3 ports and a Common I/O cable connector. You can purchase them directly through Micro SATA Cables. GO-RITE also just released a chassis expander that exposes these USB ports as well (USB3 ports to rear and USB2 ports to front). You can also purchase this through Micro SATA Cables.
Thanks! These are irrefragable answers!
What does the community think of a guarantee? - If install to NUC Intel NUC Skull Canyon Internal Common IO Header Dual USB 2.0 Panel Mount Line and|or Intel NUC Skull Canyon Internal USB 3.0 Header Cable to Dual USB 3.0 Panel Mount , in side of NUC, will lead to loss of a guarantee?
No, using these cables will not affect your warranty. There is an expectation thst people will be opening their NUCs to install memory and storage devices and other things (like these cables). Intel wouldn't provide these kinds of headers if they didn't want people to use them.
