So I inherited this build a few years ago and am in the process of updating/grading it. I'm somewhat savvy but by no means experienced so I come bearing a question.

Computer Case:Thermaltake Commander MS-I Snow Edition Mid Tower Case
Power Supply: EVGA G2 850W
Motherboard : GIGABYTE GA-B75M-D3H Intel B75/ DDR3/ CrossFireX/ SATA3&USB3.0/ A&GbE/ MATX
GA-B75M-D3H https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/GA-B75M-D3H-rev-10#ov
DDR3 Memory : 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1333/1600 PC3-10666/12800
Processor : Intel Core i7 3770 3.4GHz Quad Core 8MB
CPU Cooling Fan : Original Factory Cooling Fan and Heatsink
Hard Drive : 1TB Seagate 7200RPM SATA-3 UDMA 300 32MB Cache
Video Card : EVGA nVidia GeForce GTX 660 2GB DDR (Soon to be GTX 1060 6gb)
Operating System : MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit

What I would like to do is add a USB 3.0 hub to the front of my case in an unused 3.5" floppy bay. My issue is the 20-pin USB 3.0 connector on my motherboard is already occupied by an existing front panel header that's built into the case.(I USB 2.0 & 1 USB 3.0)
Is there a way to add the new front hub without losing two existing front ports or getting a new motherboard? Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
