Hi,
I recently upgraded my case to the HAF X Coolermaster but I kept all my old PC parts from ~6-7 years ago.
The HAF X has 2 USB 3.0 slots on the front but my old motherboard doesn't have any USB 3.0 ports.

Is there anything I could add to my motherboard as an adapter to make the USB 3.0 functional?
My motherboard is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Thanks for your help.

Here you are!

Lots of similar ones out there from every manufacturer imaginable.

Downside is that the USB 3.0 will be operating at 2.0 speeds obviously.

Alternatively if you have a free PCIe slot, something like this will provide the full USB 3.0 speeds.
