Aluminium cases with no front panel connectors?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I HATE front panel connectors and I need a small ITX/mATX case that doesn't have any ugly front panel connectors.

Take this for example..... Beautiful case ruined by ugly ass front panel connectors..

My Zalman Z9 Plus has removable ones, they are used like 5.25 bays if not there.

Silverstone FT03?
I mean they do have front panel type connectors on the top... But that's not the front tongue.gif

mATX

They come in black, silver and I believe the mATX comes in a 'titanium' too, as shown in the picture.

That is a nice case and see what you mean. It does distract from
the look.
Could you tell me who makes it smile.gif

The first listed case is the Xigmatek Gigas.

The Lian Li PC-Q25 doesn't have any front connectors at all, only the power button and LEDs. For a cheaper alternative, the DIYPC V3Plus doesn't have any front panel connectors either, but put them on the side - "side panel connectors". For a micro-ATX case, the PC-V351 fits the bill as well.
