Coolermaster HAF 932 Adanced USB 3.0 Adapter

Hey all, just bought a Coolermaster HAF 932 Adanced which has the front USB 3.0 connecter. Well, I made a novice mistake and didn't check my motherboard which is an ASUS M4A89GTD USB 3.0 SATA 6 to see if it had an actual 20 pin header, which it doesn't. The only 3.0 USB support it has is for 2 ports on the back of the motherboard. So my question is, is it possible to run the cable from the front USB 3.0 which has a 20 pin connector that should connect to my motherboard out the back and connect it to some kind of an adapter that will plug into the back ports? I've searched around and all I can find are adapters that go the opposite way. The cable looks like this.

  1. Another solution I found is a PCI card that has a 20pin connection on it but that is $30.

    Does anyone know if this would work?

    Plug the front USB 3.0 cable with the Female 20 pin into a USB 3.0 A Female to Box Header 20pin Male Adapter and then plug that into a Male to Male USB 3.0 cable which plugs into the back of my motherboard?
