Wow, long time since I've been here. After nearly two years the new forum is finally almost as good as the old.
So, I'm in a bit of bind.
I need in the next two days to find a quick fix to plug a front panel USB 3.0 box connector into my ASUS M5A97 or get it to function in any possible fashion whether at USB 2.0 or 3.0 speeds or whatever.
Any products within 20 miles of my zip code at 19073 are fair game. I recommend perusing http://www.microcenter.com/index.html for the PA store inventory.
Any help is greatly apreciated!
P.S I know there are several PCI connectors to do just what I want but I can't find any near my location.

An easy way to get USB3 is with a PCIe expansion card. ASUS has one for $30.
