Solved, but I cannot figure out how to remove this post.

Hey all,

I have the Rog Strix X299 E Gaming motherboard and all of my USB ports on the back are in use...Except one. There is a red port next to the USB-C port that's labeled USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type A, in the user manual. However, none of my USB 3.0 Type A cables fit it. I assumed it would be compatible with all Type A USB 3.1 cables, and just be faster. But that's not the case. Am I crazy, or is this true? I see some Gen 2 Type A cable's out there, but just want to make sure I purchase the right one.
