hi

i recently purchased a corsair carbide series 400R case and it has only two usb 3.0 front panel ports while my mobo has only usb 2.0 headers. can i connect the usb 3.0 port to the usb 2.0 header on my mobo.

No you cannot unfortunately as the USB 2.0 and USB 3.0 headers have different dimensions and a different number of pins!

I've seen the adapters. Just be aware, that the USB 3.0 ports will only function as 2.0 Ports since they are only connected to 2.0 headers.
