    Hi.

    i have an NZXT M59 and its a great little case!
    i would love it to have front panel USB 3.0 though.

    just wondering if there is anything planned for a front panel USB 3 upgrade just like corsair have done to their Obsidian series cases like this

    it would be awesome if there was something that also utilized the internal USB 3 headers on motherboards as they are becoming more and more popular :)!

    thanks

    USB 3.0 front panel ports are starting to appear more on cases, so keep an eye out, I think part of the reason is keeping the cost down as they would push the prces up a bit. Have a shop around though as there must be some form of drive bay fitting that would have USB3.0 ports on it.

    ye, seen them on more and more cases, but i cant afford a new case :/!

    i have only seen 1 drive bay card reader with usb 3.0 and it was ugly and expensive lol!
    hopefully, the NZXT rep can give me an insight as to whether or not its something theyr planning. it would suit the case perfectly then :D!
