bluetooth adapter help

Recently I switched my motherboard in my computer to a Asus Prime z270a, and it doesn't have any usb 2.0 ports on it so all I have are usb 3.0 ports. Any suggestion for a cheap bluetooth adapter that would work for my build?

...and it doesn't have any USB 2.0 ports on it so all. All ports are USB 3.0.

That doesn't matter. USB 3.0 is backwards compatible with USB 2.0

I do have two simple Bluetooth adapters they work just fine in 2.0 ports but when I try them in a 3.0 port they don’t

Then most probably these are quite old Bluetooth adapters.

You can try to change the setting of the USB ports (within BIOS) to legacy mode, if the board includes that feature.
