how much more room in Corsair 650D vs CM 690 II?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
im wondering how much more room is there in the Corsair 650D vs the CM 690 II


I know both are mid towers but I keep adding parts and the CM 690 II is just a tight squeeze now...or should I just grab a NZXT phantom..sigh

Phantom and the 650D have much more room than the CM 690 II. So unless all your wires are jammed and stuffed up in the case, and your video cards' length is just not cutting it in that case, then yes get the Phantom or 650D. however, the CM 690 II is a solid case and quite big for a mid tower.

If your air cooling your CPU and GPU don't get a 650D. It's more of a watercooling case, and the airflow isn't the best.

This was my second fight with the wires.

What you cant see is the one billion twist ties, and 15 miles of duct tape on the other side of the mobo tray

I kid, I found this case a breeze to work with. I have even added a second HDD and am about to stuff 2 6950's in there
