Obsidian 650D and USB 3.1-Type C question


Recommended Posts

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?

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.
