HAF 912 doesn't have usb 3.0. Alternatives?

Hey guys, I have been looking at the CM HAF 912 because it is the perfect size for me and has great space and ventilation. The only problem is there is no usb 3.0 ports. The advanced model does, but it is only sold in asia (as you guys know). I was wondering if it was at all possible to get 3.0 capability on the 912 or if I should look to get something else.

I was also looking at the CM storm enforcer, the CM storm scout 2 advanced, and the nzxt phantom 410 so if I can't get usb 3.0 capability in the 912 could you guys recommend one of these?

Thanks guys

    Basically around the same dimensions of the haf 912. I was looking at a smaller case, the fractal designs arc mini r2, but I have no clue on the release date of that
