I figured out that the link has expired which was the problem. I've updated it here and should work for new users.
If you can find one that uses the single 20-pin (actually 19-pin) but gives you one of each type (of course only USB3.1 gen 1 speeds and no special type-c features like USB-PD), that might be your best option. I think keeping the motherboard connections to only the old USB3 connection is preferred, because all the new x570 ITX boards only provide that. Seems the new USB3.1 connector is only available on Z390 ITX and a few others like the ASUS DTX board.Option #3:
One USB type-A and type-C.
Seems like this is actually the best option. I'm reaching out to my supplier to be clear about whether or not this product has been discontinued. My understanding is that it has been discontinued but maybe just that SKU has changed or been updated. I'll know soon.Man... its really sucks that you can't get the same option as the 401 had (Type-A/Type-C adapter via 20-pin mainboard header cable). I think given then current options, I'd vote for Option #4 ... nothing. I'm not a big fan of the mounting requirements for option #1. Option #2 is a little overkill ... not to mention (forgive my ignorance), how would you connect this USB hub to the motherboard? ... route a USB cable out to the motherboard back panel?
One USB-C is an option actually but I know there are many who would want two on the front for connecting controllers. I don't know however how large a demand this is but I know they have made their voices heard.Dual-A or 1-A and 1-C
Symmetry of Dual A would be very nice visually.
Is one single USB-C not an option?
Checked things here once more before heading out the door. Good news about the C7 brackets! I saw some chatter on @Thehack's dedicated thread for the brackets that Cryorig may be pulling out of the US. A bit of a bummer if true but I suppose tariffs can do that. Still, I'm sure there are plentiful existing C7's in the wild and with Ryzen 3000 in full swing, lots of folks are possibly looking to extract the max performance from their AM4 builds.First prototype of the S402 has been submitted to the fabricator. I think their current backlog is about 2 weeks but I'll know more in the next few days.
My wife and I have decided to move so I've got even less time now to get the S402 design finished as I'm also working on looking at new houses, applying for mortgages, cleaning up my current one, etc. Then I spent the first half of the day in the ER with my wife who we discovered has mono. It's amazing I get anything done while still working a full-time job (which I've been missing a lot of lately).
Regardless, as an update on the C7 brackets: This is J-Hack's design so I'm going to let him post the first ones for sale on his site and when I get a link I'll post it here. After a few days, I'll put it up on my website. The price after shipping will be very similar between my site and his. Shipped price will be around $15. I can say that I've been running the adapter on my C7 Cu for over a week without issue. Initially I ran some Prime95 tests before and after the brackets were installed but they were really inconclusive because my fan curve was set to passively I think. The good news is that now I can install a 120mm fan on my C7 Cu because it won't interfere with the RAM.
The move is mostly because we've outgrown our current house and two trees hitting it in three years. Plus, if we decide to go with new construction I won't have near the same demands on my time for fixing things around the house.Checked things here once more before heading out the door.

On that topic... anyone have a favorite AM4 motherboard? (I've got to revisit the S401 thread for motherboard compatibility stuff).
Oh, and congrats on the decision to move (I think). Since you say you're looking for new houses, I assume that it's triggered by your current house somehow not meeting your needs and not because you've found a dream house elsewhere? I haven't decided if HGTV is healthy for people looking for homes... on the one hand, you can see what people are getting into and maybe get ideas. On the other hand, holy moly that house is nice and I'll never be able to afford it in a million years.
Looking great!Thread is worthless without images.

It's an illusion. Instead of a solid back cover panel, it now has a large hole for the back vent. This vent will be useful for 120mm AIO, 240mm radiators, or 120mm fans. The new rear "solid" panel just has a large hole cut out to allow for the exposed vents.In your renders does the back of GPU have a filter recess?
Regardless it looks good, cant wait to buy the final design!
