Compatability Issue?

"ASRock FM2A85X Extreme4-M Micro ATX FM2 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Apevia X-Cruiser2 Black ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports."

-compatability issue message

I would like to use this case, but more importantly, I really want USB ports. Anyone know a good case with front panel USB 3.0 ports?

You don't absolutely need front USB 3.0, there should be a few ports on the back. If you like the case, it won't be a problem with your motherboard, but you won't be able to take advantage of USB 3.0 speeds on the front panel. (Comes with USB 2.0 instead)

so the USB ports are only in the rear, so to actually use them actively I would probably need a USB extender?

Wait, ignore that ^. I thought 2.0 meant 2 ports, and 3.0 meant 3 ports, lol. That case is fine, I think I'll live with 2.0 ports. Thanks!
