Hi guys, ok so im about to start ordering for my new build but need to know what i can do to be able to use the 2 front usb ports. The case i want is the fractal design meshify C and the motherboard is MSI b550 A pro. Issue is the case front usb ports are 3.0 and the motherboard is usb 3.2. Can someone point me in the right direction of getting the 2 front usb ports to work please? Thanks.

USB stuff on cases is usually just the conductors for the pins on the ports wired to the header pins, so unless Fractal really cheaped out on their pcb traces/cable insulation it should work perfectly fine.
