Hello, I have both a motherboard and a case on the way to my house and I noticed that the case requires on-board USB 3.0, but the motherboard has on-board USB 2.0. What will happen when I put the PC together? Will it still work, and if not are there adapters for it? And what is the difference between USB 2.0 and 3.0? I am assuming if there are adapters, the case would become compatible for USB 2.0. Thank you in advance for your responses. If you want to know the products here they are: Motherboard: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... Case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... .
You have to see what connector came with the case. I remember on my case with 3.0 port, it said- if motherboard has no 3.0, to connect it to the 2.0 port and it would work as 2.0. You would have to look up adopter if you will need one.
2 x USB 3.0 (internal 20-pin connector to MB)
4 x USB 2.0
The motherboard model you chose has (no internal 20-pin connector for USB 3.0). You would just not connect the USB 3.0 cable. There are two USB 3.0 ports on the back I/O panel of the motherboard that you can use.
