Some companies sell usb 3.0 upgrade kits and you can also get devices that fit into the 3.5 or 5.25 inch bays to give you front usb 3.0(if your board has usb 3.0 too that is).

The real question is do you use usb 3.0 devices(flash drives being the big one) that you plug into the front or not? If not, I would not even bother getting any adapters or bay panels with usb 3.0.

If your motherboard supports USB 3.0 then it will have ports in the back. You could also buy 3.5 card readers with USB 3.0 ports.

Haf series have great airflow that helps make up for it. I am a little disappointed, but as said before buy an aftermarket front panel if you want it.
