Looking for PC case...

Tue Sep 18, 2018 9:30 am

I am looking for a PC case which meets following reqs:
- Mid/Mini Tower
- 2x external 5,25 bays
- USB-type C on the front panel
- 120mm fans

Corsair Obsidian 450D or BeQuiet Pure Base 600 are very close, with exception of USB-C.

Any hints?
Thank you!

That's for desktop PC, so I tend to favor ATX for future upgrability, but may consider mATX as well.

A heads-up, on the Temjin TJ08's comments section, a Silverstone rep wrote:

*update Oct. 2017* Sorry guys, due to TJ08-E's deeper recess of its front panel I/O, our recently released G11310650-RT USB 3.1 Type-C module will not work. It'll fit, the but deeper recess from the front panel will prevent the connectors from plugging into the ports fully.

Then how about a 3.5" bay adapter?
**that particular one was just the first result in my Google search as a proof-of-concept

Also, note all the other models on that front panel replacement support list.

Good catch. Let's go with DPete27's suggestion of putting something in the 3½” bay of the TJ08-E or choose the taller TJ04-E, which is listed as compatible with that USB 3.1 Type C module.
