Usb type-C adabter

The case will most likely have a 19 pin connector that will connect to your motherboard, just check if it has the 3.1 19pin connector on it.

If i buy a case with usb type-c. But my motherboard doesn't have usb type-c. Is there an easy way to possibly put an usb 3.1 to usb 3.1 type-c adapter in there.

Perhaps, but you will likely lose out on some features

look on ebay for an adapter cable of some sort, or some extension (if you have usb type-c in the back on the io shield)

search for the connector types and add adapter  or extension ...

ex usb type-c to usb header adapter  or something like this would give you these\

If your case's  usb type c has that 10gbit connector type, then these adapters would get the type-c connector working but at 5g speeds (regular usb 3.0)
