I should probably know this but I have never built a computer so I am just trying to figure everything out before all my parts get here. I got an asrock pro3 gen3 mobo and a gamma classic series gaming case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...). The case has no usb 3.0, the mobo does. When I install the mobo in the case, the connections will hang out the back and I can still use the usb 3.0 directly from my motherboard right? I just cant use it through the front of the case? sorry for such a dumb question, still trying to learn a lot...

Your motherboard internally has USB 3.0 headers, nmot USB 3.0 ports. You need like a USB 3.0 hub with a 3.0 header which plugs dirctly into your motherboard to use it. You're motherboard's I/O shield should have at least 2 USB 3.0 ports, which are free to use.

Under the details of the pro3 gen3 mobo (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) it has seperate listings for ports and headers and lists all the usb 3.0/3.0 as ports - I still would need a usb port to use these though?

Well no, you just directly plug in usb 3.0 to the back usb 3.0 IO ports. You won't need a header in this case.

"USB 3.0
2 x USB 3.0"
