I am wondering how difficult it is to take my current system and use all the components except replace the motherboard and case? Is that possible? My reason for doing this is I bought an Oculus Quest 2 and the USB 3 type C port seems to not work (with either the Link cable or the charger cable). It gets power through the port but does not make the connection otherwise.

Alternatively, would a hub/adapter work or does that diminish the data transfer?

CPU Cooler: CRYORIG - R1 Ultimate 76.0 CFM CPU Cooler
Motherboard: Asus - ROG STRIX Z370-E GAMING ATX LGA1151 Motherboard
Memory: G.Skill - Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 Memory (+16GB add'l memory)
Storage: Samsung - 960 EVO 500GB M.2-2280 Solid State Drive
Storage: Western Digital - BLACK SERIES 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive
Video Card: EVGA - GeForce GTX 1080 Ti 11GB SC Black Edition Video Card
Case: NZXT - Phantom 410 (Black) ATX Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: Corsair - RMx 750W 80+ Gold Certified Fully-Modular ATX Power Supply

Thanks,
Justin

Yes, you can replace the case and the motherboard only, while keeping the rest, so long as you buy a 300 series motherboard (Z370, Z390, or one of the locked chipsets from the 300 series which I would not recommend as good choices for your configuration. Better to stick with Z370 or Z390)
