Nice Review, Nice looking case, but I still cant be tempted away from my antec 900 V1 (might have to invest in this though if I ever convince myself to buy a H100)...

Ahh nostalgia looking at this case again. Great review and it is such a great case for mid tower water cooling

Nice to see they have added rubber gromits, thats the only thing I didn't like about my 690 II adv.

the cm 690 II is what id consider an "all time classic" in case design...i sincerely hope CoolerMaster is able to continue this line through small updates, upgrades, and refreshes for some time to come.

If only it came with a window panel (or as an option) it'd be the perfect case for me and I'd buy it now to replace my Fractal Design Arc.

And if by the slightest chance that Coolermaster does actually read this, a normal clean window (cut to the approx size of the motherboard) with no fan mount.

actually, there is a different version made by EnerMax (makers of PlatiMax PSU)

i believe.. very similar to the CM 690 and 690 II with a twist on HDD rack...

has a different access panel arrangement with fans and bulges... maybe TTL can

review the differences?
