Asus p8Z77 V-LX2 USB3 Internal Header Question

Firstly I am just about to order this MB, ASUS P8Z77 V-LX2. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B009OUXPHM/ref=ox_sc_act_title_5?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

But i have an issue with the description of the internal USB3 header. It clearly states on the Asus Website, and in all other descriptions of the MB, that there are 2 Internal USB 3 headers. However in Every Picture and on the online version of the manual, there I only see 1 - 20 pin Internal USB3 connector.

So I will be running 1 USB3 Internal Connector to my Front Panel USB3 Port, and I was also going to get a Front Panel USB 3 Hub/Card reader, - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00BQ8A6IG/ref=ox_sc_act_title_4?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE

But because this will use up another Internal USB3 Header I am a little confused as to where on the MB the second Internal USB3 header is located. I am posting here first while I will also try to contact ASUS also, Ill update if I get a reply from them.

Many Thanks

    it must be a mis type on amazon, the asus website says it only has 1 usb 3 header.

    you will need a card such as this one if you need another usb 3 header to support the front panel card reader.
