My motherboard has USB 3.0 on it's back panel. However it is tucked away under my desk so it's a pain to simply move files back and forth from a flash drive.

Yep - thats what the link above does. If you look around newegg you will see there are lots of different options to ad a front panel USB 3.0. You could pull the cables out of the metal box and put them into the appropriate holes on your case if you wanted to.

Instead of just getting the USB you can always get a front panel card reader/usb/other too. This option has an SSD holder too. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

do you mean that there is no usb3 headers on your mother board?
Satechi 4 Port USB 3.0 Hub (Yellow) with Super Speed 4.8Gbps $27.99

that seems a lot more expensive. look around for a usb3 cable to connect to the back of your computer to run to a usb3 4 port hub to put on your desk.

Wait nevermind I misread the original link. Yeah I was asking because I like my case but want a little future proofing for it.
