Hello everyone. I am building a custom rig, but I've run into a situation. My motherboard has two USB 2.0 connectors and one USB 3.0 connector. My case has a total of six front-panel usb ports; two USB 3.0 and four USB 2.0. I want to use the new NZXT Kraken x60 as my CPU cooler and a Corsair AX860i for my power supply, but each of those require one USB 2.0 connector to operate. I was planning on buying the NZXT IU01 USB Expansion kit for the front pannel, but that would leave me with only one open USB 2.0 connector on the motherboard. What should I do?

Components are (the ones that matter anyways):
- NZXT Phantom 820 (Case)
- ASUS Maximus V Formula (Motherboard)
- NZXT Kraken x60 (AIO CPU Cooler)
- Corsair AX860i (Power Supply)

Thank you for reading and I appreciate the help.

P.S. - The P820 has the six USB ports and also a SD card reader, so the three added connectors provided by the hypothetical IU01 would all be filled.

I'm not sure what the question here is - if you need all but one USB port including the expansion kit, then that's what you do. That still gives you the ability to hook something else up, but honestly what else would you need to hook up to your internal USB headers?
