USB 3.0 Connecting the cables to the mobo.
So, I bought a case which has USB 3.0 connectivity at the front panel but the cables for those are "regular" USB contacts. So my question is as follows, is there any adapters or any other way which enables me to be able to connect these to the MOBO (internaly) instead of having to exit through the back and connect them to the back panel or use an adapter to convert them to USB 2.0?
My Mobo supports USB 3.0 and have contacts for it internaly aswell as on the back panel. The problem is that the cables running from the front panel are "regular" USB contacs instead of the kind you normally connect internaly to the MOBO.
My MOBO: ASUS P8P67 Deluxe REV B3.
My Case: Lian Li PCx2000F.
Thanks in advance.

If you have a spare PCI-e 1X slot, there's this card with an internal port and an external one.
Lian Li makes one that plugs directly onto the header with two female connectors on the same unit, but darned if I can find it outside of their website.

Indeed lucky me since it's a swedish website, I'll be ordering one of those.
Now I'm going to build my own 2,5" to 3,5" adapter for my SSD since the one Intel sent with the HDD doesn't work for my hotswap bays
Thanks a lot for the help!

Sweet! I don't have USB3 on my little mITX rig, but I do have the same deal going on right now, my new Lian Li case has normal A-male connectors to the front panel and a back slot cover for routing the wires outside for back IO connection!
Funny how Lian Li makes the solution, but doesn't include it with their case!!!
Thanks for the info, and Welcome to the forums!
