I looked at some pictures of the board and there is no USB 3.0 front panel connector. They have it on their more expensive boards and yours has USB 3.0, just on the back panel.

Yes, your motherboard didn't have any internal USB 3.0 connector. You can however buy an adapter that'll convert the USB 3.0 into USB 2.0 connector.

Another question is : is it completely necessary that I have to have it plug it before I try turning the computer on? Someone suggested I just leave it alone.

Well, if you didn't want to use the USB front panel, you can unplug it. The computer will still POST.
