Hi,
My usb header for my front pannel has one internal usb 3.0 header and a 2.0 one... The front pannel itself has 2x 3.0 usb's and a single 2.0.
Is the 2.0 internal header for the 2.0 usb (so I shloud connect both), or is it just made for older motherboards without usb 3.0 (and so I shouldn't connect both)?
 
It would make sense to connect all the headers to all the ports, that way you can use the USB 2.0 port if you don't need a faster port or if you're short on ports. THe way things go for me, I'm having to add a PCIe card with USB ports and I still need a hub or two.
