Help, please! Problem with 3.0 usb

I have the antec 900 case if you own one you will be familiar with what I'm talking about (hopefully) The front 3.0 usb connector does not match the slots on my motherboard...I have no idea what to do with it, where to connect it. Here's my motherboard http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?item=N82E16813128502

I am new to building pcs. This is my first, I got real far into my build when I ran into this problem. I simply do not know what to do :( It's stressful. From what I've read and seen the case has 3.0 usb and the motherboard supports 3.0 :s Ugh :fou:

  1. The USB ports could be 2.0 or 3.0.
    What colour are the USB ports (black or blue)?
  2. Blue. I already know it's a 3.0. It's a 20 pin connector but doesn't go anywhere on the motherboard wtf
  3. the motherboard doesnt have a usb 3.0 port. it is supposed to fit in port similar to the one seen here
  4. your board is a GIGABYTE GA-Z68A-D3H-B3 right?

    unfortunately, there are no usb 3.0 HEADERS in the board. There are usb 3.0 PORTS at the back of the board but no HEADERS for usb 3.0 connectors from cases. The header should look like this:

  7. You just need this.
    Connect it to the front usb3 case cable and then pass the other end thru and plug them into your rear usb3 ports.
