Obsidian 650D and USB 3.1-Type C question

Hi all and thanks ahead of time.

 

I recently upgraded my motherboard to a ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero and it has a new USB 3.1/Type-C front header.

 

1. Is USB 3.1 and Type-C the same thing?

 

2. Does Corsair currently sell a panel to support USB 3.1 or Type-C with this case?

 

3. Is there a way I can replace my current front external panel to support this new tech?

1. TO THE GOOGLE!

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_3.1

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB-C

If a product implements USB Type-C, it does not necessarily support USB 3.1...

The USB Type-C cable and connector specification is a supplement to the USB 3.1 specification, however USB Type-C is not USB 3.1. These terms are not interchangeable.

 

2. No.

 

3. The I/O panels are replaceable, however I've never heard of a 3rd party make an I/O panel for our cases.
