Hey. i´m upgrading my case, but i noticed that old case has 2 2.0 USB slots and new case has 1 2.0 USB and 1 3.0 USB slots. Will there be a problem?
Old case: https://microdream.co.uk/lenovo-thinkcentre-m91p-sff-quad-core-i5-2400-4gb-250gb-windows-10-professional-64bit-desktop-pc-computer.html#.WloLqdV96po couldnt find better site.

I am pretty sure it comes down to the motherboard right?!

The case should provide one cable for the USB2.0 'slot' and one for the USB3.0 'slot'. If the motherboard doesn't have a USB3.0 header to connect the cable to all you'll have is a non-functional USB 3 slot on the front panel.

The only problem I see is that you'll have only one functioning USB port on the front now.
 
Strange.. Usually, front panel ports come in pairs.
There are a number of add in motherboard adapters that will give you usb3.1 capability.
Some will have internal connectors, and some will have rear panel outputs, often both.
They can go in the x1 pcie slot, or the pci slots.

It all depends on what you need.

Then, also, you can buy front panel devices with various usb and sdcard ports.
