Adapting CM 690 case top USB ports to USB 3.0 from ASUS M5A99X MB

Recommended Posts

I have a CM 690 case that I recently upgraded the MB, CPU and RAM.  The ASUS MB is a M5A99X and has a USB 3.0 header on the board. Is there an adapter I can use to connect the case top USB ports to the USB 3.0 header on the MB.

Since the top USB ports on the CM690 are USB2, it would be best to just plug them into the USB2 headers on the motherboard.

right. A USB3 port is very different from a USB2 port, so unfortunately, it is not possible to get the ports on the top of your case to run at USB3 speeds :(
