    Hi, I have put my old pc into a new case. The new case has a usb 3.1 on front panel but my mobo only has 2.0 and 3.0. Is there an adapter I can use to make use of it (I don't mind it running at 2.0 speed). Thanks.
    Asus M5A97 EVO R2.0

    Just plug the USB 3.1 from the case to the USB 3.0 on the motherboard

    I think I know what you mean. You need an InLine USB 3.1 to 3.0 adaptor. You can google the product code 4043718277414.

    USB3.1 is same as USB3.
    So is also USB3.2, because of marketing scammers keeping renaming it.

    Only USB-C different.
    For that you need something like this:

    But remember that means having only one USB port in case instead of two:
    USB3 header has wiring for two USB-A ports
