Default USB 3.0 Header

Hey guys i bought a Haf 932 case which has a USB 3.0 front panel, but the asus formula IV mobo (which i plan to buy) does not have any USB 3.0 headers for it is there anyway that this front panel can work with the USB 2.0 Headers or should i look at buying a different mobo with the USB 3.0 headers

I'm not 100% sure, but I think yoi can plug a USB3 plug into a USB2 header. You just don't get the boost of USB3.

Dont think it can work that way, but found that the GIGABYTE AMD 990FX UD5 motherboard supports the USB 3.0 header so decided to go with that mobo and it seems to be a pretty good board
