Asus - ROG MAXIMUS X HERO (WI-FI AC) ATX LGA1151 Motherboard

I have connected my front panel USB2 ports and my nzxt kraken x62 into a usb2 header but now, one of my fans needs a usb2 header and I can't find it. I don't know if it even has another one. Please help, if not I can't use the fans.

USB 3.1 Gen 2 front panel connector

your usb 2.0 can use the 3.1 usb connection...but.....

The only usb on the motherboard is "front panel"......you have one more usb connection in the back panel.

This motherboard seems short on features pertaining to usb :(

What kind of fan you connecting with "USB"?? (Corsair cooler?) use the 3 pin or 4 pin connection for the power to you fans

I am not sure if it is required yet, but it uses a mini usb cord that connects the Corsair lighting node pro. It is for the LL fans but it has a sata connection. Hoping thats all it needs. I have a bad feeling I won't be able to customize the color.
