USB 3.0 front panel Help

I have 2 USB 3.0 slots at the front of my case however they won't function due to the fact that they have no where to connect to on my motherboard, I was wondering if anyone could give me a link to a single adapter for both cables that would allow me connect them to the motherboard listed below.

Thanks for that, I was also going to ask, if I use this converter cable would I still receive the benefits and speed boost of a usb 3.0 port?

That is a USB 3.0 Motherboard Header cable to single USB 3.0 jack. You can buy cables that have multiple 3.0 jacks.

I know, I am going to buy that card and then buy the cable (the one from the pictures) so I can connect it
 
Im getting a bit lost here.

Your case has 2 usb 3 ports ?? They should be coloured blue?.

The 20 pin cable you pictured should already be built into the case , it,should also be linked to both usb 3 ports , that single cable is made to run 2 x usb 3 ports.

I have NEVER seen.

1. A case with usb 3 that doesnt come with the header cable already attached or supplied
2. A pair of usb 3 ports requiring more than a single cable/ board header.

You need to clarify what you actually need ?

In the same position I use this exact card with an old amd 760g board like yours & a newer case with usb 3 ports.

It has a single 20 pin usb header to fit that cable you pictured & also a 4 pin molex because these adapters need external power from the psu.
