Hi, I would like to build a pc with the Asus Rog Strix B550-f WiFi motherboard and the case being the Corsair 4000d airflow. When I listed them in Pcpartpicker.com, it said that the motherboard does not have sufficient 3.2 gen 2 or gen 1 headers so the case usb 3.2 gen 2 type C port will not be usable. How do I fix this? But I don't want to change the motherboard or the case. Please somebody help.
 
I’ve not used these but I was looking at this problem recently. I found 2 options.

First is using this type of adapter which will limit the USB speed to 3.0 but allows you to use a USB 3.0 header https://www.amazon.co.uk/LINKUP-Internal-Motherboard-Converter-Adapter-USB-3-0-3-1/dp/B07WG8ZJ41/ref=asc_df_B07WG8ZJ41?tag=bingshoppinga-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=80882916213879&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=m&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4584482461513569&psc=1

Second is a pcie card with the type C header. These look to be expensive, not all as expensive as this one but it’s the first example I found https://www.amazon.co.uk/SilverStone-Technology-SuperSpeed-expansion-SST-ECU07/dp/B08TQL3QBR/ref=mp_s_a_1_28?dchild=1&keywords=pcie+usb+c+3.1&qid=1625505036&sprefix=pcie+usb+c+&sr=8-28

No, that’s just a 90 degree adapter for USB 3.0 header. On the one I linked had that smaller socket with a metal surround, that’s the socket needed for a USB-C header.
Oh shoot sorry I'm a bit stupid 😂. Okay I will search for more
