    I have an earlier Fractal Design case, though looks similar. Really good case - lots of room, very quiet. Only thing wrong with it is the power LED which is almost bright enough to read by and hurts the eyes if it's in your field of vision. Not kidding - brightest powerlight I have ever seen.

    I put duct tape over it.

    I love Fractal Design they build plain but awesome cases, I own an R4 looks pretty much identical to the R5 they are like a Tardis huge inside & pretty much silent with hardware under load :) .

    The R5 will probably be my next case upgrading from a Fractal Design Core 3000.

    Is there anything on the market that supports USB Type-C ? I don't think so.I also think it will be some time before you see anything, people wont bin all their USB hardware so quickly maybe see something in a year or 2.

    This is true, but you can get an adapter from USB to Type-C and put that adapter on the device/cable.

    I guess we will still have to spin that USB device three times before it connects.

    I have not seen a single USB-C device or slot, I was quite surprised to learn there is one :)
