Pointless Front USB 3.0 Header?

Pointless Front USB 3.0 Header?

Why is there no USB 3.0 front panels on the market that actually use the front USB 3.0 header on the motherboard? I'm surprised that Gigabyte doesn't provide one on the accessory page, Asrock did although I can't find their front panel for sale anywhere

Yes this is one of those places where most manufacturers are just beginning to latch onto. Gigabyte does actually supply them as an accessory on some of the top end motherboards but they might not be available yet as an extra to buy seperately.
