Solved Usb 3.0 case/motherboard question Tags: Homebuilt Cases USB3 Motherboards Systems Product Last response: February 9, 2012 11:35 PM in Systems Share novarider January 31, 2012 1:25:07 AM I'm about to order my system parts but have a question. I am getting this motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and this case http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... my question is how will the front Usb 3.0 ports on the case connect to the board? I'm paying more for a case that has Usb 3.0 ports up front so I want to make sure I can use them!

The least expensive ATX board that offers this is the Gigabyte GA-Z68MX-UD2 $149.99 There's not good search feature for this, you just have to check under the details tab and under Internal I/O Connectors it'll list USB 3.0 x2. If it just lists USB 2.0 then it's not going to work.
