    Hi,
    I just upgraded my system from i7 4790 to i7 8700k. Now I also want to upgrade my cabinet. I currently have Antec GX900.

    I am looking to buy a large one with lots of USB on front
    Budget : 20k

    USB 3.1 Gen 2 can be in both forms, Type C and Type A.
    Specify what exactly you need and we can look into that. Also, since you will be using front panel headers for this, specify which motherboard you are going to use, just so we can be sure it has the correct headers.

    Singh is Bliing.

    For those who don't get the Akshay Kumar movie/Bliing reference,it means Singh is loaded(aka lots of money).

    i don't think there is any mainstream cabinet that offers a "large number" of front panel usb ports-at the most you can expect it to have 3-4 ports.

    However after a bit of searching i found this:

    ANTEC FULL TOWER CABINET (ATX) - NINETEEN HUNDRED TRANSPARENT SIDE PANEL (GREEN)

    This is the antec 1900 which appears to have around 6 usb ports(which is a bit unusual)-if you don't mind its humongous size and lackluster appearance then you may consider checking it out.

    I have GA H97 D3H (ATX). It went bad that's the reason I had to upgrade. Its still in warranty will be giving it for RMA this saturday.



    Also I need to buy the cabinet this Saturday in Banglore as I cant delay my system anymore.

    Have to buy a new cabinet. Unable to fit my things into GX900 anymore.
    If I dont find the cabinet with USB 3.1 then thats the only way to have 3.1

    I dont use many HDDs. I have 3 SSDs + 2HDDs setup in every system I own.
    I would like a large case as maybe I will be upgrading to E-ATX X299 system some time mid next year.
    I need good build quality + atleast 4 Front USB, I'll add USB3.1 as accessory as cases dont seem to have it.

    BTW Anybody knows who deals in NZXT Cases in Banglore
