well i'd personally prefer the new render variant, it gives a ore slim like look i think. now if both sides would have the same number of rows in the same place mirrored, that may would also look awesome, in terms of symmetry.
It looks like the bottom will get one more row than originally but it doesn't mean they will have exactly the same amount of holes. top inlet needs to reach the center of the cover for the SFX-L to draw air unblocked. Meanwhile we can't go as far as middle on the bottom because of the location of central wall/gpu support. It will be closer but won't be symmetric.
and yes, sorry i was talking about the power button, i just noticed that internally theres some space next to the ports, which i thought was unused. im not sure how it would look, i guess it would form some kind of triangle with the usb ports
No problem, But I think that would look weird
i dont quite understand, do you have to externally order a plate which holds ports and i/o button ?
It's about the size of psu baffle type connector:
Essentially we've decided from the start that we'll use this type of connector since every connector of this type since the USB 1.1 era had the same reference size of ~60mm. It was optimal both for the looks and fitting of the size limited to 64mm - some additional structural elements.
The problem is that when you want to order something like this for a different purpose from china they tend to not get that you need exactly this size of mould etc.
So we did end up with finding offers visually matching the type we want but after contact they told us we'd get randomly the type they actually have or that they have this type but the dimensions is 68mm which looks like they copied badly the reference design or the moulds were refurbished which increased the size.
Also a lot of suppliers now sell this type:
While still using a stock photo of the type we want.
