USB 2 port on case connected to USB 3.0 header in Motherboard
I am currently trying to build my first PC build from scratch and I just wanna ask if a USB 2.0 port(from case) still perform like a USB 3.0 if it is connected to the USB 3.0 internal header of my Mother board.
Or will that USB 2.0 port(receptacle on the case, the non-blue one) limit my transfer speed and thus making the internal USB 3.0 header of my MoBo pointless to have?
Hoping for this to be clarified. Thanks in advance!

They are different header sizes, your choices are 2.0 to 2.0, 3.0 to 3.0, or using adapters.
I think USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 type A has the same sizes. Only the color blue on the USB 3.0 and its transfer speeds are different.
