Hi all,

We're pleased to announce that we'll have USB 3.1 Type-C upgrade kits available for the immensely popular Crystal Series 570X and Obsidian Series 750D very soon!

These kits add a USB 3.1 Type-C port on your chassis' front I/O and plug into the USB 3.1 Type-C motherboard front panel header that have started to appear on some motherboards.

Both kits are priced at USD $19.99 and will be available on our webstore.

Glad I noticed this today - I was about to cut into my 750D a-la Paul's Hardware and add a makeshift USB-C. This is a much cleaner option. Props, Corsair. Now if you could just release a tempered glass side panel for the 750D... <3

Fantastic upgrades to the Crystal Series 570X and Obsidian Series 750D cases. I'm liking more the Crystal Series, but the Obsidian Series in my workspace scenario looks exceptional.

Quick question regarding the 570x front panel kit - In addition to the USB 3.1 connector, does it also have USB 2.0 and/or 3.0 connector like the Obsidian 750D version? Or just the USB 3.1 connector.

If possible, it would be great to a picture like this for the 570x version.

Thanks!

I unfortunately don't have a pic like the one I have for the 750D kit.

I do have a 570X kit at my desk though.

As far as USB connections, the kit features the USB 3.1 Type-C connector and a USB 3.0 connector. There is no USB 2.0 connector since there are no USB 2.0 ports.

Perfect, thanks for the quick response!

Does Corsair has USB 3.1 type-c kit for the 760T case ?
Is the USB module can be swapped out ?

Thanks.

Nothing at the moment, not sure if we will offer it in the future though.

Same question, will there be an upgrade kit for the Graphite 780T ?

Will this USB 3.1 header that fits the Obsidian 750d also fit an older Obsidian 900?
My Obsidian 900 is about five years old (evidently an older generation from the current one). I don't even remember if it was referred to as a 900D or just a 900.

You may be thinking of the 800D. There's only one 900D, and it came out around Spring 2013.

OK, I snapped to it when I saw the "800D" in your response.

So, will the current kit for the 750D fit my older 800D?
Tryin to remember my best, I think I've had it for 5 or 6 years (and I know I bought it directly from the Corsair site).
At the time, I recall that the 800D was the "top of the line", and the 900D had not yet been introduced.

SUCH a bad implementation on the Obsidian 750D as Corsair did was remove a USB slot (that just makes it a waste of a USB port as the connector can do muc more than that) another thing to note WHY did you just keep the cutouts you just chopped off 1 USB cable and disconnected it from the front panel then just put a large plastic piece in which the USB C port sits and it looks ugly AF
