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 m 0 l treefrog07 a b ) Power supply 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. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
