Hello, I currently noticed that I have only 1 usb connection on my z370ftw. However, my nxzt case has both 2x usb 3.0 and 2x usb 2.0 on it. I have to have also 2.0 since I observed something abnormal with UR12 usb audio interface. That has USB 2.0 and that works fine but interestingly that freezes computer some time and I can not open it. So I belive, that needs to use usb 2.0 since thats audio device.
The problem is I can not connect both to motherboard (from case to motherboard) and I did not want to cut cables and make a trick there. I do not know much is there a kind of splitter/expander or  whatever you call it that I can put it to single socket and put both 2.0 and 3.0 proberly ??? If there is a socket or another proper way that I do not know please inform me.
One more thing, I ask as I am not a pro can I just unplug 3.0 on case  which goes to motherboard. Then connect on case 2.0 ones instead ?
