  1. That board has a 3.0 header and 4 2.0 headers (for 2 total USB3 and 8 USB 2 front panel or other connections) in addition to it's rear ports. The ports on the case will plug into those headers and there will be no problems. Front panel USB ports connect to 'headers' (sets of pins) on the board.

    so it doesnt matter that my motherboard has 4 usb 3.0 and 2 usb 2.0 and the case having 2 usb 3 and 4 usb 2 right?

    The rear panel motherboard ports don't make a difference as to what case ports it supports (those are separate connectors). Your motherboard has enough headers to support all the ports on the case. The ports don't interfere, they add up. With that combo you'd have 6 USB3 plus 6 USB2 ports
