I am planning to build my first PC using the ASRock Z87 Extreme6 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard and the Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case. I plugged in my parts to PC part picker to make sure everything was compatible. It was all fine, except for this:

Compatibility Notes

ASRock Z87 Extreme6 ATX LGA1150 Motherboard has onboard USB 3.0 headers, but the Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.

Will I still be able to have USB if this is the case? Does the mobo have USB 2.0 connectivity as well or will I have to choose another case? I there anything I will have to do to make it work?
