My old motherboard is an HP oem motherboard called (Nettle3)

I found this good intel motherboard (http://www.msi.com/product/mb/H77MA-G43.html#?div=Detai...)

I'm wondering whether the new motherboard would support the the 2 USB 2.0 headers on the front panel with the media hub shown in this case

IF you need any more info please ask.

Thanks

Yes; USB 3.0 is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0.
So the m-board is compatible with the front panel.

First of all both of the boards are Micro-ATX so they have the same mounting spots. However I don't know if the PSU (Power Supply Unit) that you have will provide the connections that are needed for the board. You see there should be a 6 pin power connection for the processor on current board but I do see that on the board are you show.

As far as the front panel USB connection I would expect that it would work without much effort.

On the MSI board( the new one that I wanna get). I see a 4pin CPU power connection.

Where do u see a 6pin? I recently upgraded the PSU. I have a Corsair CX500W. (http://www.corsair.com/builder-series-cx500-v2-80plus-c...)

I measured the back panel jack area of my current mobo. It is 6" by 2" . Does the new motherboard have the same dimensions?

I also want to know whether or not the power pin connector from my existing case would work with the newer motherboard
