There is none at the moment and I am not sure if we are going to have one in the future.

Let's not forget that Corsair, like a lot of vendors, does not pre-announce new products. On the other hand, the fact that they are not developing this new version, could be a sign that the 800D will be replaced in the "near future." Just my own speculation of course.

That's what I was thinking x509! Being that the almighty 800D is long in the tooth, Corsair might (or probably) will be replacing it soon. Maybe they will introduce it's replacement (if that's the plan) in June at computex or in January at CES. I probably will purchase another one just to have as an extra just in case it gets replaced and I don't like the new version.

The MB you have does not show it has USB 3.0 ports so I cannot show the picture of a USB 3.0 PCI adaptor that normally comes with most MB's. However, that is what you can use just connect it internally in the case and wire it out of the way which is what I did on my system.

Guys, the 800D has already been upgraded with USB3 on the front panel, and a simple upgrade later on would be to make the 3rd and 4th USB front panel sockets USB3 as well. At this point in time, I know of no motherboards that would accomodate four USB3 connections onboard so having just two USB3 up front plus the other two being USB2 for now is a wise move on the part of Corsair.
The only detail is that while they give you an onboard USB2 plug for the front USB2 sockets, they don't yet give us an onboard USB3 plug, and that IS an oversite since newer boards for the most part do have onboard USB3 connectors (but again, only enough for the two USB3 sockets up front).

Don't mess with the 800D because it's not only a fine case the way it is, but it can accomodate ANY "updates" necessary as time goes on, and the new SATAIII backplate for the drive bays and the USB3 sockets on the front panel prove it.
If they would just include a cheap $2 adapter similar to the Silverstone (that I bought but at $10), then there's your "800D upgrade" right there.

For my part, the 800D(W) is the only case I thought was worth paying over $200 dollars for because it will be the last case I ever need, and any further technological enhancements that come will easily be added as necessary.

Gamergirl, you can get the perfect solution for your problem at www.frozencpu.com. A 20-pin connector at one end and two female USB 3 adapters at the other end.

I just bought the part a few days ago to adapt my brand-new 800D case cables to my Asus P9X79 Pro motherboard.

Hope this helps ...

P.S. I have reported this issue to Corsair Tech Support already ... but if you want to squeak the wheel too, by all means, have at it ... :)

So can someone answer this puzzle for me.

Why is it that the team who developed this case and the included accesories do some thing as stupid as to include a USB 2.0 adapter for the USB 3.0 header connection.

I mean seriously what were you guys thinking????? It just doesn't make any sense to me to NOT include a USB 3.0 20 pin adapter......

Very confused.

Maybe because the case came out three years ago?

Hardly an excuse since they have replaced the SATA 2.0 backplate for the hot swap bay to SATA 3.0

Pretty ****ty for a company to tell you that you are getting USB 3.0 front panel connectors only to find out that you have to go out and buy a USB 3.0 20 pin adapter to get them to work.

They updated it to SATA III, Because a lot of motherboards were using SATA III Ports, And people would want to use them.

At that time, There wasn't any internal USB 3.0 connectors, Most of them were the NEC USB 3.0 controllers and cases back then were all the full-sized USB 3.0 connectors.

Im not talking about three years ago. Im talking about THE PRESENT. Admittedly USB 3.0 is not the norm with most USB based products but it is getting more popular so im surprised that like the SATA 3.0 back plate for the hot swap bay that Corsair upgraded just a few months ago, they should have also upgraded the USB 3.0 adapter to a 20 pin adapter so that it can be used as a true USB 3.0 connection.

What good are pretty blue headers if they don't give you the speed boost.

But you could also say that they had years to change that. Or do they still sell cases which belong to their first batch?
Same goes for the 650D for which i have to order an adapter too.
