Just wondering why there is not any USB C-type connector in the front panel with this new case...
I would imagine that 3 USB A and one USB C would be minimum at this moment...
I gave quite many USB C devices already and the number is crowing, so even one in front would be nice...

With the given dimensions, I fail to see how it could fit a 193mm tall tower cooler. in fact, I fail to see how it could have 80mm fans in the front let alone 120mm or larger case fans. How can a full height GPU fit? Not at the given dimensions of 235 x 535 x 55mm.

The 55mm is depth? Oh, well... how can it fit the MoBo or 318mm PSU? How can a 472mm GPU card fit?

Yep, they are missing a digit on the depth. Should be 550 mm according to their website.

I reckon it's because this one is probably not a "new" case... they're just adding TG to a good but rather old product. Actually, the lack of USB-C is what deterred me from buying a Pro M SE (TG) which was on a really good sale (85$ for a case and two HALO RGB fan frames included) a few weeks ago. I've already got a functional case, so aesthetics isn't enough to convince me to upgrade the case.

Really, it should be about time that case manufacturers start debuting NEW products. 2018 is coming.

I just bought a Enthoo Luxe, wish i would have known about this one for my Home Server build. I have an Enthoo Pro M SE and i LOVE it, but i didnt hear any rumors about a full tower model coming. I guess i'll be returning the Luxe.

Maybe manufacturers wait for better hardware support. Right now newest Z370 intel platforms still rely on 3rd party controller for USB C 3.1 communication, with Z390 chipset its supposed to be a built in feature.

Right now we have only one USB C 3.1 interface on most of new boards and its wired into IO panel, with native support for USB C on chipset we might start seeing multiple interfaces of that type and there will be enough of them to leave one on IO and one as a mobo header.

I really hope that there is unstated SSI-EEB motherboard support. The Enthoo Pro was pretty much the only affordable tower case that could fit these server boards. I have 3 of these (the existing model) in my basement running dual socket servers right now! Will be a shame to see that option go away for those who do not want to run loud rackmount chassis.
