Hey guys I'm looking to upgrade my case for better air flow etc. I like the HAF 932 so far and I think it will be my pick, although I notice it supports USB 3.0 and I will be running a Q9550 with and USB 2.0 supported motherboard.

Are there any adapters that allow me to connect and utilize the USB 3.0 ports, but have them run as USB 2.0 instead? Or will I just have to have them not functional?


Thank you

The USB 3.0 ports have a specific motherboard connection header, so you won't be able to use them with 2.0 ports.

The HAF 932 USB 3.0 Ports are not on the top panel with the rest of the ports, they are in one of the 5.25" drive bays, so it is easy to remove them if you don't want to use them.

other option is to get a PCIe USB 3 card.
