So what if the whole country has been white lately, a little more cant hurt! We take a look at the White 690 II Advanced.

It's just my own personal opinion, and I'm not really a case-person - but I know what's decent looking prior to modding, but in all honesty I find this case nasty.

Soon as it's nice'n'popular and falls to <£60, it'd semi justify it to people with a white fetish, even tho the whole mesh thing looks cheap to me.

Insides are like all their cases I've touched, nice. Just a shame about the looks, imo.

I have this case in black, not sure if I like the white yet. The phantom looks great in white, but the mesh front of the 690 II doesn't look so hot in white IMO. Still an excellent case for price and layout though.

I have to admit in the flesh I really like this, and for £80 Id honestly say this is awesome for those that like white but dont want a full tower. It also has better WC support than all the other white chassis available.

It's only $80 here. I've seen it as cheap as $60 on sale. I paid about $100 when it first came out. Good pricing though either way. Do you know how thick of a radiator you can fit in the top?

Talking white : Tom you said you would be using the phantom as your personal rig and would come with a review on that case.

Will it come this month and can you hint on how it is compared to this one

Said Id use it for a month and I did, it was featured in the subscriber video #7. Both cases are very different dude and all the infor for the Phantom was covered in the original video review I did.

The Utgard is epic for the money, but this feels slightly better quality, has support without mods for 2x 240mm rads and hey - its white!

Id say Utgard isthe best case around £60 and this is the best £70 - £100 chassis. Its so nice Id happily use it for a customer.

Utgard is epic.. havent got round to using it yet tho.. but much better than my current case and as i cant splash out on the most expensive kit i would say if you dnt really mind about the case and WC then go for it.. but if you want the ability, this (690 II) seems much better and i would sadly say that i prefer black aswell...
