I can't connect my case front panel USB 3.0 with my motherboard


I've just finished putting together a new Gaming rig.
Everything working great my only issue is that the front panel USB3s (there's two) Don't plug into my motherboard (GIGABYTE GA-970A-D3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard) The case I'm using is the Corsair Carbide Series 200R Compact ATX Case. I assumed like other Cooler master Case's I've worked with it recently for example the silencio 550 would come a usb 3 extension type lead to plug in to the back of the motherboard to make use of the front panel USB 3s. Is there a quick way to resolve this or any adapters I can buy to make it compatible with my board?

Thanks a lot for any help you guys can offer.

  1. You are correct about the CM case, the front panel USB 3.0 are connected into one adapter which make it easier for you to plug in the MOBO USB port integrated on the board.
    In this case, as long as you have the USB 3.0 plugs from the front panel, just plug them to the USB ports of the motherboard not the on board one,or.&bvm=bv.47534661,d.cGE&biw=1024&bih=646&um=1&ie=UTF-8&hl=en&tbm=isch&source=og&sa=N&tab=wi&ei=Fy2wUbmoL8f8iwKmrIGoAw
  2. Only 3 x USB 2.0/1.1 headers on the motherboard so you either use a 20 pin to 9 pin USB cable or a USB 3.0 PCI card with an internal USB 3.0 header.
