HAF X Case-MoBo Doesnt have usb 3.0 Tags: Power Supplies Cases Components Last response: September 27, 2010 8:07 PM in Components Share chilledviking September 27, 2010 6:48:15 PM Hey Guys, ordering all my new parts. The mobo im using is Evga's 3-way Sli x58, im using it in the haf x case. Now this is where im confused. The haf x has usb 3.0 ports, but my mobo does not. Do i have to plug those ports in somewhere? or can i just unplug the cables and be fine?

Moto | Report abuse treefrog07 Power supply Expert September 27, 2010 7:53:58 PM Do not plug the USB 3.0. The case's 3.0 wires were designed to be inserted into the motherboard's rear USB 3.0 port to let you have a font connection. It's a workaround because there isn't a USB 3.0 standard for internal connectors. | Report abuse kaosnkorruption September 27, 2010 8:07:18 PM IIRC the HAF-X comes with replacement USB2.0 cables for the front/top panel. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Components>HAF X Case-MoBo Doesnt have usb 3.0> Related ressources: ForumUSB 3.0 Box ASUS P8P67 Deluxe into HAF X Case ForumHAF 932 Adv.
