My Mobo doesn't have USB 3.0 headers but my case does?

So my motherboard is,

ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
and case is
NZXT Source 210 Elite ATX Mid Tower Case (White)
The case has 1 usb 2.0 and 1 usb 3.0 in the front. But I dont know if my mobo has USB front headers?
I ordered the parts anyway, im a derp.

    Why don't you just download the manual from here and look it up? http://www.asrock.com/mb/AMD/970%20Extreme3/?cat=Manual
  2. The MB doesn't, but you can buy an adapter to plug the USB3 into one of the USB2 headers.

  3. Or you can add a pcie card that has an internal 19 pin usb 3 header so you can use the ports as usb 3. I've used a couple of THESE and they work great. It also gives you two USB 3 ports on the back of your machine.
