it is hard to tell whether the motherboard is compatible or not. It highly depends on the USB chipset. I would look for a compatible USB 3.0 PCI extension card. Those are rather cheap and are confirmed to be working with the Kinect V2. It is also beneficial to have a dedicated USB chip just for the 3D camera, as other USB 3.0 devices may not get enough bandwidth if combined with a 3D camera.

See this MSDN thread for more information on Kinect V2 compatible USB PCI extension cards.
