What does this mean?

It says "Asus M5A78L-M/USB3 Micro ATX AM3+ Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the Zalman Z11 ATX Mid Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports." what does this mean? i need to get a new case or something? if so can anyone reccommend any cheap good ones?

  1. just means you wont be able to connect usb 3 devices to the front usb ports. the rear ports on the motherboard will still work fine.
  2. You need to get a new case if you want front USB3 ports. The case you have now doesn't have any front USB 3 ports on it. You'll still have any USB3 ports in the back I/O panel. I "recently" bought a new case and made sure it had front ports. No point in buying a case now that's already outdated right?
  3. Do you know any good cases that has any? (prefebrably cheap) This is my first time building a PC :/
  4. Should i get the NZXT source 210?
