So i have an ASUS Prime B450M A-II (https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B08K91L574/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) and the pins are broken on the usb 3.0 header,so i wanted to know if i could still use usb 2.0 on this motherboard,as i want to get corsair fans ( https://www.amazon.co.uk/Corsair-Low-Noise-Airflow-Cooling-Triple/dp/B07VGJLZ8L/ref=pd_rhf_ee_p_img_4?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=S84H1RYFR489477EB77V) but the fans come with a hub,which plugs into sata and usb 2.0 so i'm guessing if i can't access 2.0 they won't light up?
 
They will light up as the power mostly comes from the SATA, the USB connection is just so you can control the light colors via software. You should plug in the fan USB connection first, set your colors then unplug the USB connection and use it for whatever other purpose you needed it for. Your fans should still get power to the lights via SATA.

So if i'm understanding correctly,i can use the rgb on the fans but i will not be able to use icue?
