I see lots of cases advertised with 2 x USB2 ports. Are these OK for USB3? Aren't they just a socket and a lead to connect to the MB header?

USB3 has an extra set of electrical contacts deeper into the connector for its dedicated RX and TX pairs. To use USB3, you need USB3-specific cables and connectors.

OK Thanks. So I need to find a case with USB3 , or install a separate USB3 panel in a cheaper case.
