CM690II Adv Vs CM HAF922

Both will cost me the same.

The 690 II Adv. has a few things above the HAF922, such as the easily accessible dust filters and the black interior. The HAF has mounting options for bigger fans and a bit more space in the sides for thick cables to be routed through. But the 690 II has nice cable managing features like the HAF 922 has. So it should come down to if you want a case that is a bit slimmer or one with big sides that give it a bit more stability, in terms of Rad mounting they have the same options if you want to go liquid.

Nice to see you can get both for the same price where you live.

So if I need to pick it comes down to cooling system, as both of them should be enough for my rig.
Is the HAF cooler then the 690 II ?
Edit: Altough, for the HAF I don't have to wait for shipping and for the 690 I'll have to wait up to 14 days.
Edit 2: The 690 costs 10$ less actually, but shipping takes them, causing it to be identical in price.

The HAF(High Air Flow) as its name implies is maximized for excellent airflow with Big 200mm fans in the front and the top of the case whereas it can have a third one mounted on the side wall. Both cases should be fairly good but the HAF is as said best for good airflow, which is good if you are using beefy Graphics cards with big Aircoolers.
The 690 II is also good with its nice fan filters that are easily accessible and painted interior.
I would personally recommend the HAF since I own one myself and have had only good experience with it. It was definately worth its price tag since its so sturdy(I sat on it a couple of times)
If you care about internal looks and whatnot then I would recommend the 690.

not sure about HAF, since i haven't owned them.
but for 690 II . it's a damn good mid tower for great price.
all black inerior :
can mount 10+ 120 MM fans .
2 top, 2 front, 2 button 2 side, 1 80MM on panel side, even a bracket to custom mount a 80MM fir graphics only thumb.gif.
also the HDD cages can be unmount induvidually with a couple of bolts.
and if u do want to go water cooling in the future, u can mount 1 x thin 120mm dual raditor on top, 1 x thick 120 dual at button. even another 140 mm in front.
how nice for a little case like that.thumb.gif

I know that the 690 is great, the problem is the shipping there, at that price I can get a R3 (and stay with change)
So I'm kinda leaning to the 922, as I want my rig to start running ASAP.

I'll be taking the 922 as ApollyonXD recommend it, it also looks way more attractive.
