I customized a PC on but my motherboard has USB 3.0 for the front panel but my case only has USB 2.0 on the front panel. Is there a way to fix that without getting a new case or motherboard with like an a adapter or something?

Thanks.

You could buy this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... and try to put them in the front panel of the Antec 300.

Antec 300 front panel fix: http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=208880 It shows you how to remove the cover of the front panel to reveal the USB 2.0 and maybe you could put the USB 3.0 in there, I really doubt it but it can work.

Yes, as long the motherboard supports USB 3.0 and as a 20 Pin Header, usually color blue.

Yes, your motherboard has a USB 3.0 header, near the RAM modules. It does support USB 3.0
