Corsair 500 and asrock usb 3.0 panel

I bought an Asrock Z87 motherboard. Not sure where the extra usb 3.9 panel goes? Too small for the front of the case. Do I have to buy a frame for it so it fits? Thanks from a newbie builder.

    The USB 3.0 front panel should connect to a blue port on the motherboard http://cdn3.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Z87-Extreme4.jpg near the RAM slots.
  2. Thanks but I know where it connects on the motherboard. My problem is I can't figure out where on the case it should be installed. For example, it doesn't fit in an optical drive bay, it's too small. Does anyone know where it fits? Thank you!

    I think it may simply be a spare panel for the one currently on the case.
  4. It's advertised as a front USB 3.0 panel/2.5 inch SSD rack. That leads me to believe that I could install it one of the drive bays, but on my corsair 500R, that would mean removing one of the 2 front intake fans. Is that correct?
