However, their News page doesn't say when these might be available here. A quick check of Newegg indicates that they don't have them yet (no surprise there.)

It looks like pricing is going to be either €9.99 or $9.99 if the article below is accurate but of course, no one know for sure until it's readily available in the marketplace.

Yeah, NCIX (both .com and .ca) list them as "available" but "back ordered" and the price shows there as $9.99, Canadian.

For $10, this is on my shopping list. Heck, I had to spend that just to get the 8-pin ATX cable to reach in my XL (without going through the mobo compartment. I'm more than happy enough with the case to drop that to get USB 3.0 on the front of it.

My 8-pin extender finally got here so I may post some pictures (depending on how they come out.)

Love the paint job on the SA. What method/paint did you use? I get alot of questions in the SA club about painting the fans so any info would be very helpful. thumb.gif

Wait, when you say you stumbled across this did you mean this thread or the posted pictures?

Heard back from Fractal Design re the availability of the USB 3.0 upgrade kits. Here's a quote from the email:

"They do exist, they just aren’t available yet... They should be available on Newegg in a couple of weeks. They have the product and we’re just waiting on them to put them online. I would recommend just checking occasionally. Shouldn’t be much longer. If you use Facebook or Twitter we’ll post on our sights as things become available, such as fans and USB 3.0."

Also, the official Facebook and Twitter links for Fractal-Design North America is:

http://www.facebook.com/FractalDesignNA

Hope this helps!

Will do. This will be my very first WC rig as well as the first time I've put a decent amount of time modding the case. Generally, when my parts arrive, I'm too excited to spend an additional 1-3 weeks doing additional labor. I think I'll probably do a log for it as well.
