Build Done, Few Questions.....
Hey guys. So I just finished up my first build, have a few questions.

First off that motherboard i/o panel metal cover, how important is that? I tried to install it before screwing the mobo to the case, but it wasn't going in very well and the screws wouldn't like up without alot of pressure, so I ended up leaving it out. Do I need to remove the mobo again to put it in (which I don't want to do really), or does anyone have other suggestions.

Second. I want to put in another case fan, but I'm all outta molex. The fans with the 3 pin connector, do those go right into the motherboard into the chassis fan connectors?

And last, will USB 3.0 slots work with USB 2.0 peripherals, or no? I had all those drivers on the motherboard install CD, i've put them on but I really don't know what any of them do.

Thanks. By the way dumbest thing i did during the build? I couldn't figure out why the second fan on the graphics card wouldn't go. I tried downloading software, putting it under some stress, googling everything about it, then finally I noticed there was a wire in the way blocking the fan...
