I honestly do not think youd you'd regret either.
Its really going to come down to how much you need to upgrade now, and if you are patient enough to wait.

How about thunderbolt?

Ive read also that thunderbolt will not be in chipset for ivy.

It says ivy bridge support it? how? buying a hardware thunderbolt?


Haswell will have thunderbolt chipset.

This technology still very far away to become trends on market right?

Well yes and no, apple macbooks (mid 2011 onwards) already have thunderbolt, but no peripherals support it yet.

Why are you so worried about usb 3.0 and or fast external connection devices?

I've had usb 3.0 since around launch and I don't own a single usb 3.0 device, because the added cost far outways the performance gain.

If you want fast data transfer e-sata is more than fast enough, and if you want even faster you could get a SATA 6Gbps front panel card and run it direct for a SATA lll header on your motherboard. But you'd need an SSD to benefit from that, and would work out very expensive for a solid state removable drive.

This is exactlly what I did.
I do not have any USB3 devices either. So On my board, the add On Marvell USB 3 controller is disabled in the bios. (No point running it if not using it)

For back up, I have a WD HD mounted internally, connected via eSATA. It could be mounted externally, but I just went this route as I had plenty of room.

From what I can tell, eSATA is still faster overall than USB3 if you have that option.

I have both USB 3.0 and eSATA and use both. You are correct, eSATA is faster than USB 3.0, but with either one you are still limited by the speed of the hard drive you are using. USB typically is around 2-2.5 times faster than USB 2.0 in real world terms, which isn't bad, but no where near the specs they quote. But there is no mechanical hard drive capable of those specs. The biggest advantage of USB 3.0 is if you are transfering data between computers that do not have eSATA. It is backward compatable and can be used on USB 2.0 as well.

No USB 3.0 is fully established and available on almost all new computers.
But I don't see why your worrying? You obviously don't have any USB 3.0 devices, and currently survive without it, so why worry?
Get a board that has USB 3.0, but don't make it your soul job to get everything USB 3.0, the only advantage it has is faster transfer speeds. All plug in peripherals will work, and don't need the added speed, nor can I see them needing it in the future.

E-sata is a form of plug in and play media like USB, but only aimed at external mass storage. Most boards support this also, however again you will need to buy peripherals to use this feature.

I'm not prepared to spend double the amount of money on say a USB 3.0 pen drive, over that of a USB 2, as waiting a few moments longer isn't going to kill me.. So I'd save the money.

Ok. The purpose of asking about USB 3.0 because find hard to decide on CM 690 ii plus usb 3.0 black versus Cm690 ii plus white usb 2.0

I like the new CM 690 usb 3.0 feature but googling the actual image of the BLACK on the users using it...it seems black is kind a blurred.

Cooler Master 690 II Advanced

Cm website the black color is good.




The white version is only usb 2.0 and has a esata and find this site which is a actual user image beautiful white paint.

It this white really the actual picture? or he did a repaint on his casing?

CM 690 II White Dream



The CM website the White is kind a blurred.


If i buy white then i only need the USB 3.0 Back panel mobo.

If i buy the black then i need a mid-board and back panel mobo.


Can you guys help me to decide?
