The new front panel is shipping with select ASRock 100 Series models. TweakTown will let you know when we have additional details regarding this snazzy new PC addition.

USB evolved into the most common standard for connecting peripherals to PCs, and while it has been upgraded, the addition of USB 3.1 is a game changer. USB 3.0 has speeds up to 10Gb/s, a drastic increase over the 5 Gb/s currently offered by USB 3.0 - and it absolutely blows USB 2.0 out of the water.
