Would the MB I am getting soon be compatible with this case?

The reason I ask is cause the MB has connections for USB 3.0 and the case doesn't.

I will be using the case till April then in April I will get a modern case that has USB 3.0,just wondering if it will be safe to use my old case until then.

This will be the Motherboard I will be getting;

yes, no problem. You should connect the front panel usb to a a 2.0 usb header on motherboard. If you need a 3.0, just use the ones on the motherboard (on the back).

  • Those are optional features of mobos/cases. Computer cases rarely, if ever, have the exact number/type of ports that are mobo offers.
  • The computer form factor is the main consideration when dealing with a mobo and case.
