i am getting a case that has 2 usb3.0 in the front panel and it has a 20 pin connector that goes to the motherboard. my motherboard does not have the onboard 3.0 but does have the rear panel usb 3.0 slot. I am jsut curious what my options are. I would be fine with configuring it so they function just like usb 2.0. So is the best solution some sort of adapter cable? a pci adapter? I do not know much about USB3.0
Actually, if you have 3.0 on the back plugs, you have it on your motherboard. There are cables that come off your front panel plugs inside your case, indentify them and plug them into the USB 3.0 headers on your motherboard. Fixed.
No. You have USB headers on your motherboard, a set of pins to plug in to. THey will be labeled, open up your manual and look for the USB connectros on the motherboard, You plug the cables from the FRONT PANEL of your case to those headers and you should have USB 3.0 on your front panel of your case.
