Default 990fxa-gd65 and NZXT 240

This is more of a question about usb 3.0 as both have these feature but there is no/couldn't find the pins that connect the front i/o usb 3.0 on the motherboard :/. Any idea where or possible way to use the front usb 3.0?

It doesn't have a USB3 front header.

THere are USB2 to USB3 adapters or PCI-E cards that you can use.

Like this one?
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Neewer-USB3-.../dp/B009SJCPO8 I'd like to use the front panel one so it'd be useful.

Yea that'll work. Just know that you will get USB2 performance from those ports.
