It would help if you explained what header issue you're talking about. I bought a 650D in January, and don't have any problems with the USB3 header as far as I know.

I believe he is referring to this, which ,so far as I know, is long ago no longer the case.

in order to use the USB 3.0 hookups on the front of the case you have to route the cables out the back of the case and loop them around and plug them into your motherboard that way because they are regular usb cables (not the ones that plug into the USB headers on your mobo

Oh... well that's not an "issue," it's how a number of cases were designed before the internal USB3 header became ubiquitous. As far as I know, the 650D is still designed this way; the only design (and part# change) I'm aware of was the shift from CC650DW to CC650DW-1, which resolved some problems with early fan controllers.

NCIX (and everybody else) has carried the -1 model for most of a year now (despite the part number listed on the product this post falls under, it is indeed the -1). I haven't heard anything about Corsair revisiting their existing cases and changing the header connector; the 650D I bought in January still has the external pass-through connector.

Even if that's the issue the OP is talking about, it's fairly easily remedied. He can either use the pass-through and pick up an expansion card that connects to the internal header, or BitFenix makes an adapter cable that converts the internal header to two female USB3 ports (which you would just plug the external cables into, and tuck the whole thing behind the motherboard tray).

That's the only "issue" I'm aware that they ever had with the USB 3 on that case, and I agree that it isn't an issue at all. My old HAF X had the same pass through, while the new ones do not.

Use it and you can plug it inside your case on your motherboard if it have a 3.0 header.
