Like I said before, feels a bit cramped. Plus, I could use the 5.25 bays on the CM 690II and add a fan there. I think the CM 690 II looks a bit smoother though after you do what Spider did. The curve of the case and the lines at the side (they're a bit slanted so they're like arrows) almost seem like they indicate the flow.

It's steel IIRC. Steel that looks like brushed aluminum. I think you're thinking about the Core 3000.

Looked at it a while ago and it was a nice case back then but I think you can get something much better for a few bucks.

Coolermaster doesn't sell fanless side panels. I might be able to have Adam make one. Side fans aren't a problem though since they add air to the airflow and being it's from the side it probably won't change the direction on the airflow. It's only blowing down onto a flat surface (okay, the motherboard isn't completely flat with the caps and stuff on the board) and has to go the way the wind is pushing it which would be towards the back.

Edit: so where should I get the mesh?

Sadly, it is just plastic. First sentence in this review: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/F...i_Tower/3.html

Very nice looking plastic, no question. But just plastic.

Sorry to revive this thread. I have a quick question and didn't want to start a new thread. Can I take apart a case and reassemble it so it uses reverse/inverted ATX instead of ATX? I think it was possible with the TJ07.

Unless the case was originally designed with that option, I really don't think that can happen without modification. With modification, anything is possible of course.
