Your MoBo will undoubtedly have USB2 as well as USB3 connections....use thge USB 2 for the front panel port.

Well thanks for the information .But after I had researched a little more into my choice of the MoBo the website mentioned it having USB3.0 on it and actually it is still at the USB 2.0 .So I have no need of the modification. The parts arrived last week and WOW I have a six core screamer now. Beats the single core snail I had been using for the past 7 years. Thanks for your assistance. :hello:
