    I just want a replacement with a upgraded front panel for my Enthoo Evolv ATX, just like NZXT did with their cases to keep up. I don't wanna change my case just for that.

    what for?
    your really gonna transfer +1gb files everyday?
    if not, the speed difference between 3 and 3.1 is more or less irrelevant.

    and after getting an extension cord (3.0) i dont even care about front panel ports,
    as i can route the cable under my case (hiding it) and only the plug shows..

    OK, the cable can be used in such a manner (hidden beneath the case) but it is nice to have options... Besides, there are people who are not in a need of an upgrade, but building their system from the scratch, the case with the appropriate front panel included.

    I just don't think Phanteks will release only upgraded front panel, they will be releasing new Primo Elite at $699USD which looks awesome but price is just too much

    NZXT cases target different markets than Phanteks with their cases

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura
