Solved USB 3.0 case but a 2.0 motherboard ? Tags: Motherboards Cases Support USB3 Last response: March 25, 2013 4:07 AM in Motherboards Share Reaikoz November 9, 2011 9:39:09 AM Hello, I am willing to buy a case which has a USB 3.0 slot in front, but the motherboard I am also willing to buy only support USB 2.0. Does that mean I'm going to have a PC with a USB 3.0 functioning ? Or My motherboard must support USB 3.0 as well ? Thanks Reaikoz, More about : usb case motherboard Best solution hell_storm2004 a b V Motherboard November 9, 2011 9:56:06 AM Cases just provide the slots, but its the motherboard that has to support USB 3.0 to have you use it. In a way the scenario is you would have a PC without USB 3.0! 1foxracing November 9, 2011 10:26:00 AM The Corsair Carbide 400R comes with a adapter to convert the front panel USB3 to USB2 so you would be able to plug them into your motherboard. http://www.corsair.com/pc-cases/carbide-series-pc-case/...

I was actually willing to save some cash by buying a cheaper mobo but I guess I'll try find a Motherboard with a USB 3.0. It will be cheaper and a better deal. Biostar might be a good start.
