So I recently purchased a new build, the case is an Antec 900, and the motherboard is ASUS M5A97. The case itself has some wires inside of it, one of them is a USB 3.0 connector. I searched all through my motherboard but I am unable to find where to connect it. There is also 3 wires that are labeled PWR SW, RESET SW, and H.D.D. LED, I have no clue where those would connect either. And my final problem is, the case has 4 fans, but the motherboard 4 fan connectors (Including CPU cooler) so one of my fans is unable to get power.

So what I'm asking is:

Help in finding where the USB 3.0 connects to, if there is none, then can I buy something to add to my motherboard for one? (2x10 pins)

Help in finding where the PWR SW, RESET SW, and H.D.D. LED connect to, and if they can't connect anywhere, then what should I do?

Is it possible to purchase an add-on to my motherboard to make another available slot open for my 4th fan?

Sorry for asking so much, but help would be greatly appreciated.

Your motherboard doesn't have a USB 3.0 header. You can get adapters to route the cable out the back and plug into the motherbpard's rear ports, tho.

Use your board's manual to locate the pin-outs for the front panel wiring. (Wht header next to SATA headers... page 2-20)

You can plug any fan into any 4 pin molex connector from the PSU. The case you linked us to shows the fans being 2 wire with Molex connectors on them anyway. So you will normally plug them into the PSU's Molex's.

Do you think you could link me via Newegg or a similar site to a USB 3.0 connector?
