All other cases generally have just a USB 3.0 extension cable that you route out the back of your case and into your rear I/O for USB 3.0 support. Sort of a cheap way to do it if you ask me.
No other way to do it if motherboards don't have USB 3.0 headers

True.

Are there many motherboards that don't have USB 3.0 headers? I could have sworn I saw several that do from Gigabyte.

Most motherboards don't have USB 3.0 headers yet. I'm sure there's a few out there, but most of them just have USB3 ports on the rear.

Looks alright, except I hate the fact you need to use screws to hold any PCI devices which is fail, whatever happened to using clips instead?

I know I'd want to plug it in the back (that's what she said?), and not on the front of the case.
USB 3 sticks? Anything that will come out with a USB 3 connection in the future? It's just very handy, and just about the only thing I regret about my Scout is that there's no front USB3 (though I <3 the fact that it has 4 front ports).


That said, I really dislike the looks of this case and am not sure why this is released under CM Storm branding
