USB 3.0 connector on case and Asus P6X58D Premium

So I recently bought a corsair 300r which has front 3.0 USB ports, however the motherboard does not have USB 3.0 headers. So the question is can i connect the USB 3.0 connector to USB 2.0 Header on the motherboard, or not?

  2. With the Silverstone Tek Internal 19-Pin USB3.0 to USB2.0 Adapter Cable you can do this. Just plug the USB 2.0 end into one of the USB 2.0 motherboard header and the USB 3.0 connector from the case into the USB 3.0 end of the adapter. Note: you will be limited to 2.0 speeds through the case's 3.0 ports, but they'll work.
  3. yes if you want an extra 2.0 usp front port then u can do like above said....but u cannot make an usb 2.0 header into 3.0.....
  4. Alright thanks guys
