HAF-X USB 3.0 Header
 
Ok yeah I am getting obsessed with that but here is what I got from CM customer support.

If you bought your HAF-X (or I guess any case with USB 3.0 header prior to the standard finalization), just send them an email and they will reply telling you to hit the link below and to complete the part request. 2 or 3 days later, you have the second link's item in your mailbox. Enjoy your free USB 3.0 new internal cables! Their unit is looking longer that the BitFenix I quickly review thus I may use it permanently.

Please fill out the parts request form found below and we can send you the external pass through to internal USB 3.0 adapter.
Request Part - Cooler Master


Use the model number of the case(RC-942-KKN2-GP) and in the description box state you need external to internal USB 3.0 adapter.
The serial can be found near the motherboard’s IO panel on rear of case. If you cannot find the serial number, then a copy of the invoice must be uploaded.

Fixed!

So I got the thing, not like the photo on the store. I like it better than the BitFenix one. Everything was free so don't hesitate to contact CM!

Here is the gizmo!

Are those USB female inputs or female sata inputs ?

I was thinking of something like this for my problem. The Lian Li case comes with that 20 pin 3.0 adapter but my motherboard doesn't.

Newegg.com - SYBA USB 3.0 PCI-e Card with HDD Power Connector (3 + 1 Ports) Model SD-PEX20080

Just don't like the look of that adapter and a few negative comments there, wish Asus or Intel would make one.

I was just looking at these kinds of cards, and that's not what you're looking for... it looks like the card you linked to only has a standard USB3 connector internally rather than a Motherboard header... this is the kind of card you're looking for, but so far the one's I've found over at NCIX aren't in stock....

Silverstone SST-EC01+ 19 Pin Dual Port USB 3.0 PCI Express Card - Silverstone Technology - SST-EC01+

Something else to pay attention to is that most of these 3.0 cards have a molex connection on them, so don't be tricked into thinking that the molex is an internal header.

Yes, your right. I'll keep looking. Ideally I would like 1 sata, USB ( 2 min ) plus the 20pin on a PCIe 2.0.
