New mobo, old case - will the front USB headers work?

So I'm currently using a Gigabyte Z87-D3HP motherboard with an i7-4770k, and in my quest to upgrade to a Ryzen 5 3600 I have ordered an Asus TUF Gaming X570-Plus:

I will be using my existing case, which is a Riotoro 1088:

The case has two front USB 3.0 ports, and the new Asus board has two USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports - so it has hit me: will this work? Will I be able to connect the two front USB 3.0 ports from my Riotoro case to the USB 3.2 Gen 1 ports on the new Asus board?

 

I've looked everywhere for some clear guidance on the compatibility of USB front headers with cases and I'm struggling to get a definitive answers... if you guys could shed some light on this I would be very grateful :)
