Agreed. Apparently LL revealed their logo change on May 24 @ computex. Btw, thanks for the article. Though fwiw, that isn't an aluminum case. The Front & Right Panels are aluminum, the rest is SECC with a tempered glass Left Side Panel.
 


That's a newer version of there logo. I'm not a fan of any names or logos on my PC cases so its not the logo its that its there at all that bugs me.

Ya, I nearly did a double take when I saw it, it's there though. NZXT's S340 E case (maybe others too?) also has one. The premise is to make using VR easier for them. Both cases seem to have an hdmi cable attached to the front i/o panel, which still, nonetheless, is run through the case & plugged into the hdmi port on the gpu or motherboard if an apu is used.

So let me get this straight. It has to run through the case, but then to plug into the GPU's HDMI port it'd have to go back outside the case since the GPU's HDMI port is on the outside. That's the way I see it at least.

Exactly. Btw, Evga also offers the same feature on all their DG-8 series Gaming cases, & Gigabyte has a 5.25" mod that offers the same feature, which comes with a bracket & 80cm (iirc) hdmi cables. Of the 3 (all huge, EATX cases) I've seen so far that include the front hdmi port, including the one in the article, Evga has a clever design which at least hides the connection from back to front.

Moreover, their front panel i/o (aside from standard power/reset buttons) also includes a digital fan & temp control buttons, a USB 3.1 type C port, & another feature on their monstrous DG=8 cases I've never seen before. Though I'm curious as to how it works, I cant see why one would need it. It, being a K "boost" switch, that supposedly maxes out your CPU & GPU clocks after pressing it. I'd say one should see it for oneself on their site or a vid, not because it's necessarily functional or necessary, but just to see it. I'm sure Tom's will be doing a review on them sooner or later too.

There may be more cases already on the market with the front hdmi port (or whatever else). If not, methinks there'll be more on the way.

I've no interest in the case in the article, the other two, or the mod. None offer an elegant windowless solution made of all metal or aluminum. Also I've no current interest in VR, it still has a long way to go to imho.

Is it supposed to look like Harry Potter's scar?

I don't like it anyways... Who builds a "full tower" without a 5.25 bay? Even my HTPCs have optical drives in them (yes both of them, so they still play discs)...
