Don't ask don't tell - can't get them any more from what I'm told.

I had to do "surgery" to make it work on the 2 larger routing holes.

Well if the 690 II Advanced is too much $$$ for him, the HAF 912 is pretty much in line price wise to what the Antec is going for.

I still can't decide between the CM 690 II Advanced and the Antec 300 Illusion.
The HAF 912 does not appeal to me because it doesn't come with the top fan, which I'd have to buy, bringing the price to just about the same as the CM 690 II Advanced which does come with the top fan included.
The Antec 300 Illusion is significantly cheaper though and already comes with four fans, including the top fan.

The CM 690 II does have better cable management though. Hell, I don't know.

Ah, heck, I can afford $30 extra. I'll get the CM 690 II it does look like it's worth $30 more because it looks cooler, it's bigger, has the cable management, and vent at the bottom and I can add more fans later.

Thanks for the help.

Right now I'd be happy with a 1990's Accord.

In the HAF 912 you can place up to 2 120mm fans up there and 120mm fans do not cost much.

Put (slow or medium speed) 120mm Yate Loon fans up there which are not expensive and you'll be fine and dandy.

In fact I have 4 120mm Yate Loon Medium speed fans and 1 140mm Blue Yate Loon fan in my 690 II Advanced.

I'd advise you to take your time in deciding.

I "hear" that the stock fans in that case aren't too great.

Each 120mm is nearly $10. I have to use the six-pin auxiliary power connectors from the power supply because my motherboard only supports one more case fan than I have now (one). That means I can't get the cheap combo packs because those need motherboard connectors or fan controllers. I don't want to spend on a fan controller too, that'll just make it a better deal to get CM 690 II Advanced. Cases are frustrating!
