Any mid-tower non-LianLi cases with USB 3.0 ports?

Does anyone know if any mid-tower ATX cases exist, besides expensive Lian Li's, that have USB 3.0 ports on the front?

Actually nevermind, I found a few I just have to put a space between 'USB 3.0' when searching Newegg.

Unfortunately none of them have any reviews. :(

I could not find one because usb 3.0 is fairly new. You could always use a usb 3.0 hub to plug in the back of your case.

I found a few, the cheapest one is $80 from Thermaltake.

What's funny is that all these cases with USB 3.0 support, including Lian-Li, have a USB cable running from the front to the back.

Like this:

Does anyone know if this is going to be a standard with USB 3 or are these cases just "workarounds" until USB 3 becomes more mainstream?

I think it's probably a work-around.
