Hello ,

 

I'm planning a build at the moment and noticed lots of the new motherboards don't have internal 'USB 2' ports to connect the Commander pro and AIO etc! ( They all seem to be USB 3)

 

Will I need to use something like this if my mobo only has usb 3 headers?

Will this work (I'm a bit of a noob) .

 

I'm also thinking I'll need one of these to plug into that adapter -

And this is the motherboard I have my eye on at the moment , released on the 7th of July so just trying to make sure I have every thing I need:

USB 2 wise , I have the Commander pro , 6 fans and lighting node pro kit , I'll be using the kraken X72 , which also needs usb 2. I think it's crazy these new boards don't have usb 2 inputs. Unless I'm missing something??

 

Any advise appreciated , thanks.

 

(edit , just re-checking the specs on that board and I think it has 4 x usb 2 ports) .. :) Doh!
