Yes it works fine. And USB 3 ports work on back panel on your mobo just fine.

Most boards still have 10pin[2x5](8 actually used for 2 ports 1 is a place holder and a missing one to prevent reverse plugging.) usb 2.0 plugs anyway.

As long as your board has that you will not even need an adapter.

If you had a case with only usb 3.0 the adapter above would allow the 2.0 ports to use the 3.0 plugs on the case.
