Newbie designing a HTPC would appreciate help understanding how to match the front inputs of a case to a motherboard. I am considering this case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163205&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction--na--na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=
How do I know if the inputs on the case will "match up" with these boards or others? It looks like there are 2 USB inputs on the case, but many more on the boards. Will I lose the rest of the USB connections on the boards since they are seemingly covered up by the case? Please help with suggesting a good HTPC case (black) that would allow me to make use of more than 2 USBs. Thank you in advance!
