Dose the asus m5a97 le r2.0 motherboard have a USB 3.0 header for a case? If not are there any other boards in the £50 to £60 price range for the AMD Fx 6300 CPU? As I am doing a budget build.

Actually the spec says no. There are 3 internal headers, but they are USB 2.0 not 3.0 for a total of 6 additional "front" or other USB ports. You must have mistaken the 3x header count for 3.0.

I have this board and no, it does not have an internal USB 3.0 header.

Wait....so are you saying my 3.0 ports on my case are...useless?

I would say they are useless. I came to this issue last night. I have a Corsair Carbide 300R with front USB 3.0, nowhere to connect it on the mobo though. Only solution I can think of is to get a USB 3.0 PCI card with internal header.

I thought there was some sort of female 3.0 to male 2.0 converter that could be purchased. Is this correct?
