Sounds pretty bizarre, but I just realized this from attempt to install a windows mixed reality headset, which requires 3.0 SS. Seeing as my USB ports are in the way front of my PC for some strange reason, I had to purchase an adapter to help me out here, it refuses to accept the adapter and decided to investigate my devices to see if they really are 3.0. It sadly says there are no 3.0 devices anywhere on my PC, despite having the signature blue coloring for the port.

Am I crazy or is my PC poorly put together here? I really hope I'm just inexperienced with ports here, they don't seem all that difficult to understand, but very paranoid regardless.

What board and case did you get? We can check if there's free connectors for USB SS on the board, and if the case should have front SS 3.0 ports. I assume this is a new PC, since all current boards, for a few generations now, have supported/included USB 3.0 SS.
If it doesn't Light Up, Turn On, or Plug In, I don't want it!
