My mother-in-law snapped off a USB 2.0 cable on the top of my Lian Li PCX1000 tower - wrecking the multimedia port.

I can't find a replacement anywhere so I am going to have to buy a USB 3.0 replacement port which is the same size.

How do I plug a USB 3.0 connector into a USB 2.0 MOBO?

Help!
 
Lian li should be able to supply the replacement part if you contact C.s.
but the 19pin usb 3.0 header will not fit anywhere on a motherboard that does not support it, its totally different to the usual usb header design
whats the actual part thats broken, may be able to conjure a mod to sort you out,
pics if you can please
