What motherboard?

Check your motherboard manual. Close to the front, you will see a drawing of your motherboard. You will see several little 9 pin blocks labeled USB. Each one of those blocks has pins for 2 USB ports.

If you do not have enough front panel connectors, you can buy USB connectors that fit into case drive bays, something like this:

You can also buy similar expansions with just 4 USB ports.

This is just a hub, which is for external use I am talking about the header ports which are internal. The board says it is expandable but no information on how to expand the internal USB header ports.
