Hi all, I have a older computer case from 2009. When I upgrade this with a new motherboard would the front USB ports on the case, do they support USB3?

No, you would need a USB3 front panel insert similar to this:

You can also get a similar insert panel that fits into a 3.5" floppy drive bay.

Currently have a HP case but if upgrading to a new case something like this is a must http://www.stw.hk/en/proshow.asp?id=22

Also am a big user of the HP Pocket media Drives so the drive cage for this also would have to fit

As most know there is not a big selection with multiple 5.25 drive Bays that looks any good
