computer building – Connecting USB 3.1 front panel to USB 3.2 motherboard connector

My computer case, “Corsair 4000D Airflow” has a front panel with:

  • USB 3.1 Type-C port
  • USB 3.0 Type-A port

I am considering buying the motherboard Asus Prime x299 Edition 30. But since the motherboard is newer, it doesn’t have USB 3.1 connectors. Instead it features the newer USB 3.2 standard.

It has one connector for USB 3.2 Gen2:

And one connector for USB 3.2 Gen1:

So the question is:

Should I try to connect the USB 3.1 cable from the Corsair case to the USB 3.2 connectors on the motherboard? Will I break something? Will it work?
