You probably can using a usb 3.0 PCIe adapter.

There's probably more out there.

You could check the cables from your PSU. The 4 pin (molex), looked like this:

 

From what I see on the product page, you will need this IF you're using the USB port for hardwares that consumes rather high power. ie; external harddrive, smartphones.

 

If you're just using the port for a mouse or keyboard you won't be needing this.
