Asus P8Z77-V LK ATX LGA1155 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Cooler Master HAF 912 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports.


I get this compatability note at pcpartpicker. Does it mean the two will not work together, or is there a way to make it work?
Thanks and have a great day.

If you can swing it moving up to the 922 over the 912 would be an obvious choice. Other one being not to use or hook up the front usb ports.

Another solution, this one has Biostar written on it, but you may find others.

So does this mean I would not have the 8 2.0 usb ports also included in the onboard usb or just the 3.0's ?
And I would still have the rear panel usb's correct.

To clear it up it is warning you that your motherboard supports 3.0 usb through the front usb connectors but your case does not have usb 3.0 in the front. Meaning you either get a case with 3.0 support (the 922 does but the 912 does not) or you can switch to a mobo without 3.0 usb or not use the 3.0 usb by not hooking up the front case 2.0 usb.
