  1. is there a black cable that comes off the back of the front panel? if so it would plug into the mobo itself
  2. no it a blue cable from the case
  3. and its for the usb port on the back not for the motherbord? if so then yes u would have too pick but usb 3.0 is backwards compatable so it would the best choice
  4. You should have the 2 blue usb 3.0 cables that plug into the back and a usb 2.0 cable that plugs into your MB header coming off the front panel. I have the HAF X and that's what I have.
  5. wierd because i check my manual the front panel only have 2 port to plug in which i can only pick either usb 3 or usb 2 do i have to buy some kinda of spilte for extra usb in front panel

    The HAF X comes with the 2 blue usb 3.0 cables attached that you can convert to usb 2.0 with a cable that comes with the case. The 2 usb 2.0 ports on the front should already have a cable attached that plug into your MB header. It sounds like you might be missing that one. You should let Coolermaster know....maybe they'll send you one.
  7. does the usb 2 cable mount to the haf x board or it just a wire that i can buy or ask from the place i bought it from i got it from mircocenter
  8. It mounts to the board.
