    It would seem a PCI-e bluetooth adapter would go in a PCI-e slot.
    Not the header for the front USB ports.

    The PCI card is already installed in the PCI-E slot. There is an additional patch cable that connects to a pin out on the PCI card. The other end is supposed to be connected to an F_USB connector on the motherboard. This connection is needed to enable bluetooth functionality on the card. I've found only one F_USB connector, and it's already occupied by the connection to the front panel USB ports. I was hoping to learn if there was another F_USB connector on the Dell motherboard.

    No, there is only one F_USB connector.
    Apparently this sucks up that whole thing. Unless you can physically see another port of that same size on the motherboard.
