Case with USB3 from mobo besides HAF932 advanced?

So I've been looking for cases that have their OWN connection to the USB 3.0 that you can find on most of the P67/Z68 boards around.

The only case that I know of so far is the HAF-932 advanced. Does anyone know of any others?
---------------------------------------------------------------------

TO CLARIFY: I am looking for a board that has a USB3.0 on the front that is NOT a pass-through connection to the back, but rather connects to the headers that are mid-board on most of the P67/Z68 motherboards.

That case doesn't have the USB 3 connection to the board. Instead it runs USB 3.0 cables through the case, and around to the back, effectively eliminating the USB3.0 in the back to move it to the front.

What I'm looking for is a case that has a connection directly into the middle of the board.

I didn't say it very well. Yeah, a direct to header.

BTW, "misunderstandingness" should be used more often. :)

All of the Antec V3 I have seen are USB3.0 pass through to the back I/O, which is not what I want.

The case that Ghandar linked appears to have a USB3 splitter running from the back to the top, not from the header on the board to the top.

Also, that Lian Li is pretty hard to find, and from what I can find, about $300.

Best solution

Well you could try something like this usb 3.0 to 20pin adapter.

That is an interesting solution, PsyKhiqZero, for sure.

I wonder how long it will be before more case manufacturers start adding a connection from the header to the front of the case.
