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.
