I have the "normal" USB 3.0 connector for my case that plugs into my ASUS Hero X motherboard. However, my motherboard supports USB 3.1 Gen2, which I would like to utilize, but connectors differ...

Which adapter do I need and would it allow for full USB 3.1 Gen2 transfer speed?

Do devices have to officially support USB 3.1 Gen2 to take advantage of it's throughput or do all USB 3.0 devices get a throughput boost with USB 3.1 Gen2 usage?

BTW, I know USB 3.1 Gen2 provides more power to USB devices than previous USB 3.0, but does it provide as much or more than outlet-powered USB hub?
