If the media reader and top 2 USB3 ports are in one cable then I suggest to use just those. Otherwise the media reader itself should be a USB2 connection.

PCI Express USB 3.0 Connector Card: http://www.amazon.com/Anker%C2%AE-Us...WN76AS69BAVHRD

Seems like a good deal for $20

You said prior that the NZXT reader is USB3, but just said it's USB2

Just plug in your card reader and leave the cable for the other 2 in the back. Shouldn't need more than 2 USB3 ports in the front anyways. USB3 to USB2 converters look ugly.

All I see right there is a USB3 header and a USB2 header. You should have the ports to plug them in.

PP that's just for the card reader, He also has another USB 3.0 on the front of the case, I would just use the case 3.0 I have a card reader with USB and barely use it for the USB, Case USB are just right there and conveniently located.
