[SOLVED] USB 3.2 Gen 1 Header not compatible with case?

I've been using pcpartpicker to check for compatibility issues in my next build. When I look at the "potential issues/incompatibilities" list, I get this message:

"Corsair 5000D AIRFLOW ATX Mid Tower Case has a front panel USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A port, but the Asus TUF GAMING X570-PRO (WI-FI) ATX AM4 Motherboard does not have sufficient USB 3.2 Gen 1 headers. The case USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A port will not be usable."

To my understanding, the single USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A header should support the two USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type A headers on the front I/O. I'm I mistaken, or is the site incorrect? Below is my planned build so far for reference:

I've checked your board and PC case, and I agree with you...
Asus board has one USB3.2 header (for two Type-A ports) and one USB-C header (for USB-C port) for front panel -which fits perfectly with Corsair 5000D.
I think PartPicker warnings are "automated" and so maybe don't catch every detail perfectly.

PCPartPicker have had this issue a long time now. My colleagues and I have also identified that some things are misreported and not many are reporting it or maybe they are being reported and they're not doing anything about it.
