I'm assuming you mean if you buy it from someone here on ocn. In that case, i'm also assuming that you can get the cm 690 II for cheaper than that on here too wink.gif

The site looks like it's in spanish, so maybe you converted wrong?

it's in Portuguese but I guess it is possible that I converted wrong. However, on the same website the cm 690 II is € 89.02 at the lowest so it's still cheaper redface.gif

Antec 1200
NZXT Phantom

Wish one would be better?
Wanna decide between this two, both have great cooling by the temps sir Nawon gave smile.gif and styling, and I think the cable managment in the nzxt is better, opinions?
post #39 of 44
Ill have to check, but i heard that you can only mount NZXT branded fans in the NZXT Phantom. I believe i read this in some NewEgg reviews since i was considering the case. And the reviews of the NZXT case fans are terrible.
Quote:
Pros: -VERY good looking. Sleek. Sexy
-Roomy with GREAT cable management
-Great airflow w/ all fans
-Built in Fan control
-Solid construction. High Quality parts
Cons: -Biggest Con for me is the fact that the specs say it can hold 200mm fans, but in reality it only holds the NZXT brand 200mm fans(which are smaller like 190mm). The holes for mounting the "200mm" fans are too small for other brands of 200mm fans.
-The tool less system is sub-par for the cd-drives(requires additional screws for the drive to be stable)
-The Fan control cables were badly cable tied, but was an easy fix.
-This case can NOT fit a corsair h50/h70 AND have 2 "200mm" fans installed in the top. You can only have the one closest to the front.
Other Thoughts: Since i bought a corsair h70 and 2 additional 200mm fans that werent from NZXT, I was kinda peeved when i tried to install them. Overall this case is great though, just make sure you buy yours fans from NZXT, and dont expect to have a corsair h50/70 installed AND have 2 fans on the top. Otherwise a great case!
Quote:
Pros: Very nice paint job. Slick modular mounting for drives. Super fan-cooling capabilities (see CONS below). Convenient fan-RPM adjustments on top front of case. Angular top prevents anyone from setting a drink on it... which could save you a bundle someday.
Cons: NZXT... SHAME ON YOU! You have advertised that the case needs 200mm fans -- and you provide ONE fan with a blue LED, and two slots for mounting additional 200mm fans. Since I always use Coolermaster fans, I ordered 2 from newegg. THE MOUNTING HOLES DO NOT LINE UP, and ONLY NZXT BRAND FANS will fit this case. Now I am faced with an RMA issue... and since this is the main computer for my business, I am behind the eight ball having to swap out computers until the RMA is completed. Are you trying to "screw" your customers out of 30 or 40 more bucks with this 200mm (actually 192mm) "screw hole" dimension? And... when a customer then tries to buy two more of YOUR fans, they are NOT available with the blue LED, to match the ONE fan you have provided in this case!! People buy this case because it LOOKS GOOD -- why aren't the stock LED fans available at the retail level???
Other Thoughts: I am waiting for a response from NZXT. Their response, or lack thereof, will speak volumes about the way they do business. Until then, I will NOT order another NZXT case... ever!
And here's the fan reviews. Suprisingly, their 140mm fan has good reviews.
