USB 2.0 case and USB 3.0 motherboard

If a case does not say it has USB 3.0, will I be unable to use the USB 3.0 in a motherboard that has it?

  1. Best answer
    Your case front panel won't be able to utilize usb 3.0 if it isn't included.
    Your mobo will supply usb 3.0 at the rear of your case.
    You can buy a usb 3.0 front bay adapter.

    All it does is re-route usb 3.0 from rear access to front.
  2. So I can still use USB 3.0, but it won't be on the front panel?
  3. Correct.

    Some case manufacturers may be willing to sell / give ya the new modules.....Antec sent me a pile of them about 2 months after I bought 3 cases from them w/ USB 1 ports....the sent 6 USB modules free of charge
