With all the earlier discussion about the front panel, I doubt that front ports will be added. Quite a few people didn't even want the power button on the front panel (top instead).@dondan It’s great to hear that you’re considering finding a way to support 280mm radiators. Even 240mm is pretty great already.
Is there any possibility that you’ll be able to work in an alternate front panel that includes 2 x USB Type-A ports also? I understand that many prefer a bare minimalist front I/O, but I don’t mind paying extra for the option of gaining two more ports up front for stuff like security keys and USB drives. It’s not a hard requirement for me, but having that option would be a nice thing to avoid using USB hubs.
However, something like this idea from a few pages ago, of putting front IO into the front "foot" could be an option, if not from Dan, then maybe as an after market option:
@thelaughingman thanks. I will have to reallly consider if I want to wait for the C4 or just get the V6.1 Ncase M1
I've seen a few different feet designs on the prototypes so far, but if you look at this Imgur gallery that Dan posted, you can see the feet, and how it should be quite easy to replace the front one with an IO version, without messing up the aesthetics too much.
