Question Motherboard usb question

So...USB type C devices can draw up to 15W on a Type C connector, but USB 3.1 gen 1 can only deliver 4.5W. Based on that I'd have to say even if you COULD connect the case's jumper to the motherboard it would be risky should you plug in a high-power device into the case type C port.

So no, it's not wise to attempt that.

No, different plugs. The USB 3.1 Gen1 has a IDC 20 19- Pin socket while the USB 3.1 Gen 2 has a A-Key 20 socket. You can get an adapter but it will only enable 5Gbit transfers instead of 10Gbit.
