Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 with HAF 932 Advanced

I am a noob, and I recently ordered parts for my first build. I have the following motherboard and case.

http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=3037&product_name=HAF%20932%20Advanced

It's the Asrock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 and the HAF 932 Advanced. Sorry for such a noob question, but the HAF 932 Advanced comes with two USB 3.0 ports in the front of the case. How do I connect that to my motherboard? Is my motherboard not compatible? Thanks.

    It doesn't look as if that board has a USB 3 header that the cable needs to plug into. You can plug them into one of the USB2 headers on the board with an adaptor: http://www.corsair.com/parts/case-parts/corsair-carbide-granite-accessory-box.html But you will only have USB2 speed.

    Or you can plug them into the USB3 rear ports with something like these: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=CA-049-BX&campaign=pcm/googleshopping
    But you will have used up all your USB3 rear ports.

    Or you can get an add-in card with a 20 pin USB header on it. Something like this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815201043
