Do you have usb 3.0 on your motherboard? On the back panel? If so, you can buy this THIS Which would connect to the 2 Usb 3.0 ports on the back of your motherboard , though it only has usb 3.0.

I had the same situation where my case had USB 3.0 ports on the front i/o panel but it required usb 3.0 headers on the motherboard which I didnt have, so i bought THIS. So if you wanted a USB 3.0 front panel that had the headers that look like this:

then it would work fine.
