I was wondering if the usb 3.0 ports on my mobo (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...) will accept these usb 2.0 ports on my case (http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E1681...). Kinda like you can use SATA II cords/hard drives and plug em into SATA III ports on your motherboard.

No, it won't work.

You could buy something like this to get USB 3.0:

Sorry I just looked on the motherboard post, and it says there are 6 internal usb 2.0, could I just use those and go with out built in usb 3.0? (There are 2 usb 3.0 on the motherboard rear panel.)
