So I got an NZXT H210 cheap and am currently moving my PC into it but have run into a problem.
The NZXT H210 has a USB 3.1 Gen 2 front usb port.
My motherboard is a Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3.
I have already bought a USB 3.0 20 pin male header to usb 2.0 9 pin cable for the usb 3.0 port but am unsure what to do for the usb 3.1 gen 2 as I cannot find an adapter for it.
Any help/suggestions appreciated.
 
you have 3 options

1. Actually find an adapter. I'm not sure they exist, but i can imagine they do.

2. Don't connect it. nothing will happen aside from the port not working

3. Get a pci-e card with the connector on it like this one:

p.s while searching for the card, i found a usb 3.0 to usb 3.2 adapter.

I saw the 3.0 to 3.2 adapter but it says: Not compatible with USB 2.0 motherboard IDC connector, does this mean it won't work with the USB 3.0 20 pin male header to usb 2.0 9 pin cable?
