I'm going to be building a PC soon and was wondering how to get the front panel USB working. It is not a USB 3.0 front panel. I have seen adapters on amazon such as USB 2.0 to 3.0. Would one of these work then use it as 2.0 speeds? My motherboard only has 3.0 (To my knowledge). If not how could I?

You have 6 x USB 2.0 headers on the board, from the specs for internal I/O "2 x USB 3.0 + 6 x USB 2.0" Basically you have 3 USB2.0 plug ins on the board! look in your manual!
