Yet another case without a USB-C 3.2 Gen2 (wow, I hate the USB-IF for their naming schemes) front port. I'd love something that could take advantage of more USB ports, but at least give me this in a new product for 2021!

And, since there are no front 5.25" slots, you can't add them either.

Are we not amused? Cases from 10 years ago can be brought up
to date by simple additions... but not these "modern" cases with
base features found on cases ... 10 years ago... and NO expansion...:confused:

Not even those crappy side-vents that do nothing at least?

What's the point of these silent cases now. With a good airflow case and properly tuned fan profiles you can have low noise and low temperatures. These silent cases run about 10ºC hotter and aren't much quieter at all.

My Pure Base 500DX has no issues keeping my components cool with three 140mm Silent Wings 3 running at 900 RPM. Never going past 63C on both CPU and GPU. And it's very very quiet. Fans don't need to spin past 50% in my Argus Monitor config.

Pretty much. The P180 deserves all the praise it got back then, and I still have fond memories of my own, but that was a time of screaming 80mm PSU fans and RAIDed 10000rpm+ spinning rust making your entire case chatter and hum. You almost have to put effort to make a truly loud case these days.

And seriously, no USB-C? I know it's an extra cost, but you'd think their marketing department would insist on it.
