    Nice machine and Scan are very tidy builders, However on the DIY side I get a real kick out of a PC I have built to my own spec and to my own price. Half the fun is deciding what to buy and how much to pay. I remember my first ever build about 5 years ago. A simple AMD processor and at a total build cost of about £300. I spent literally hours checking its internal connections and the fact that it worked the first time I powered on got me totally hooked. Since then I have built about 30 PCs with no lessening of the enjoyment factor

    How long has USB3 been out, and Scan are using an external pick up via the Rear IO Panel !?

    That's the first thing I noticed too. Even 2 year+ old cases have a USB3 header for their front panel ports.

    Guys

    We use always use internal headers were possible, the system has a total of 4 USB3 ports on the front... 2 on the chassis and 2 on the card reader, unfortunately the board only has 1 internal header supporting 2 USB3 ports.

    We would rather have a cable neatly cabled internally and then routed out the back rather than have 2 front ports not working or connected to the slower USB2 headers.

    Thanks

    Yep can't beat that feeling of when you first power up a system you have built with your own hands followed by the thought of "what no boom"lol
