Hello everyone in PCpartpicker when I have my parts selected the compatibility check states that Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX LGA1150 Motherboard has an onboard USB 3.0 header, but the NZXT Phantom ATX Full Tower Case does not have front panel USB 3.0 ports. Is this a problem and how can I fix it cause I already bought the parts. Thank you in advance.

Not a problem unless you need front USB 3.0 ports.
If you do, get something like this.

not much you can do, you just won't have usb 3.0 ports on the front of the case, only on the back of the motherboard.

Thanks for the fast replies guys and if I buy that header cable do I plugin that into motherboard and place it inside the drive bay?

That's all you have to do.

If you didn't have a header, they also make them, that pass through the case to plug in, the back ports.
