Default NZXT Phantom Enthusiast Full Tower

Hi people!

My knowledge is fairly limited in computer technology so I was just looking for some advice.

I've been considering this case for my new set-up. I really like the Orange/Black version as seen here: http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showpr...atid=7&subcat=

This particular version seems to be difficult to find over here in the UK, but my main concern is that it doesn't have USB 3.0 technology. I know I can purchase this case in other colours with USB 3.0 but as I said, I really like this version.

How off-putting would that be for you guys? Would you consider it as major con? Any help would be appreciated!

It is a good case (i have it), you can install usb 3.0 on it anyway. Its not a big con seeing as though you have other 3.0 ports on the motherboard if you dont upgrade the front panel.
