Windows 7: USB 3.0 A Male to...

USB 3.0 A Male to...

I just built a workstation with a Gigabyte H81-D3. It has 2 USB 3.0 ports on the back panel, but not USB 3.0 header on the motherboard. I'd like to install a Rosewill front panel, which has (amongst other ports) USB 3.0 with, of course, the cable that attaches to the motherboard USB 3.0 header.

I know I can get adapters to convert the 3.0 header cable to 2.0 USB header, but I don't think that would result in USB 3.0 (would it?).

I can also get this adapter that seems like it would work best. I'd have to get a few 12" USB male to femal extensions.

Or, I guess I could get a USB 3.0 hub.

What would be the best working solution for this problem (getting USB 3.0 from back panel to front panel)?

Thanks for any ideas.

From my understanding, you can make USB 3.0 to 2.0 via header. I would not recommend that however because the wiring on the pins may be different .
You should just get a USB 3.0 hub instead.

That's exactly what I did. I like the unobtusiveness of front panels, but adapters and such complicate matters. Thanks.
