Default Corsair 570X Front USB 3.0 with Maximus Code X

Hey guys, I wanna buy the Corsair 570X Case and I have seen the front Panel connector is a USB 3.0 Header.

in the Manual of the Asus Maximus Code X it says it has USB 3.1 Gen1/2 Connectors and one is 20-1 Pin.

Can I connect the 570x USB 3.0 Connector to the USB 3.1 on this Mainboard?

Here is the manual:

You can connect the USB 3.0 front panel ports to the USB 3.1 Gen 1 20-pin connector (#9 on page 1-2). USB 3.1 Gen 1 is actually USB 3.0; there is no difference. USB 3.1 Gen 2 is a different connector and a different standard (#8 on page 1-2).
This is an example of marketing run amok.

They're different connectors.

The top one is the USB 3.1 v2 connector that will connect to a usb-c port. You can use this on the 570x with the front panel upgrade kit:

The bottom one is the USB 3.1 v1 connector that connects to a usb type A port.
