Solved USB ports on case front panel Tags: Cases Front Panel USB Components Last response: September 7, 2013 8:53 AM in Components Share momist September 7, 2013 8:38:52 AM 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?
