this case comes without a headphone or microphone jack, is there any way to purchase those and mod them in? The previous case I was looking at was too small for my GPU and I like this ones design

God that case is hideous. Of course you could mod a headphone and/or mic jack in. You could mod them into a cantaloupe if you wanted to.

With a case that expensive, why not just buy one that comes what you want?

yeah, good idea, but I keep changing cases, and I want to know where to buy a microphone jack thing.

Radio Shack could probably hook you up with the jacks you would need to do the job. I have to agree with mattsteg that case is god awful at best. Skip the bling get a good functional case that will last you for years and be done with it. The P180 series of cases work great.

Why not just get one of the many "multifunction" bay panels (like this. If you really want it on the top of your case rather than in a bay, it's pretty easy to Dremel out a rectangle.

dont listen to uber, he is trying to trick you. besides, if you put a heavy duty metal fan in the front, you could have a food processor computer case. you could make smoothies at lan parties.

Well I wasn't modding my case but I did need a female headphone jack to build an audio selector box, which works beautifully. Anyways here is the link for the jack I used.

The jack can probably also be used for a mic connection but I wouldn't rely completely on my prediction. But the jack works fine for stereo audio out. That solves one problem for where you can get a female headphone jack but now you need to figure out how to connect it to the motherboard headers.
