    Hi all,

    I have salted away an Antec Twelve Hundred (v2) case to build a new pc (eventually).

    Just read that they updated the case recently to add USB3 ports. Anyone know if the front plate can be swapped to add USB 3 to the existing case? Is this even necessary?

    the usb 3 ports add 4 more wires but usb 2.0 backwards compatible.. probably be a good idea to ask on the antec forum first.. but it looks as though you can take out the port and replace it quite easily

    Can you update this if you find anything trekkypj.
    I have a USB 3.0 Back plate from my Asus P8P67 that could make lovely USB 3.0 front connections for my 1200.
