I like this website. Good answers. I am building a AS Rock Z77 Extreme 4 Mobo with and Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge LGA 1155. Everything is going along well. I am using and older case which I like. Now comes the time to do something about the floppy disk panel. I shopped around and found a cool multi-functional panel (3.5 in, 4 USB 3.0 ports and lots of card readers. It is China made with no brand name or DIRECTIONS! Now I can figure out most of them but...There is a Blue USB connector coming out the back. The other two are to USB 2.0 ports and power. My mobo has one USB header that supports 2 USB headers (in addition to 4 3.0 USB ports in the back of the case) So do I have to buy some sort of an adapter for the header that makes a connector of the header to plug in the blue connector? This is my first build.

This is the ASRock z77 diagram with the USB 3.0 header circled. Actual pictures do not show much.

It would be USB 3.0 type A with about 6 inches of cable. This looks like it leads to 4 outlets (3.0) There are also card readers for MS,M2,TF,XD,SD & CF. Fills up the floppy slot.
