Hi, I am trying to connect the USB 3.0 coming out of my case to my MSI B450I Mini ITX mobo, but it only has ports for USB 2.0 and 3.1. Is this USB connection from my case to my motherboard very necessary, and if so, should I get a USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter? I read that they are backwards compatible, but I just wanted to make sure I can stick the USB 3.0 into the USB 2.0 port on the mobo. In addition, what is this USB cable coming out of my case even for? Sorry I'm new to this, but I can't seem to figure it out. Thanks!
