New build, motherboard USB problem?

i just built my first build today, and was using this case:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139018&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

which had a cable for the 2 front USB ports (im assuming, i cant see) and the cable says that its USB 3.0, but i cant find a USB 3.0 slot on my mobo: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157315&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

does this mean i will not be able to use my 2 front USB slots because its incompatible? i have not actually tried because my monitor has yet to arrive, so i cant boot it up just yet.

im surprised i didn't catch this incompatibility, i researched all the parts extensively and asked tons of people on this forum...

  1. check if something like this could help http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815201043 there are also some for the back of the case.
  2. the case has USB 3.0 Plug, your mother board doesn't have on board USB3.0, i had the same problem with my mobo/case so i bought http://www.corsair.com/en/parts/case-parts/obsidian-series-550d-accessory-kit-including-screws.html

    it has that USB 3 to USB 2 adapter.
  3. It's your motherboard, H61 chipset does not support USB 3.0 so you have to get the header in order to use the two USB slots
