hi

i just bought a NZXT Phantom 410 case and couldnt be happier with it. but i also got a mid range z68 board form asus (p8z68 LX), and it doesnt have USB 3 headers, but my case does. i knew this before buying but was just wodering if there's and adapter or something i can get for the header for the two USB 3.0s on the front of my case to connect to the USB 3.0 ports on the back of my motherboard

thanks

You just need this. I have the LX also in one of my builds. Basically a slightly stripped down -V.

It plugs into the port under the 24 pin power connector if you are looking at the board in the case. There is a thread on page one already asking this.
