    I use a utility called USB Device Tree Viewer, which gives a lot of very detailed information about the USB devices attached to your system. If you dig deep enough, it will tell you what is what.

    What Samuria meant to say was the easiest way to tell is to look at the ports and if they have a blue plastic piece inside they are USB 3.0. The other way is to read the owner's manual for the case.

    In that case, just look at cables form front to the MB.
    USB1 to 2 are small with 8 wires but 10 places for contacts.
