Thanks! I bought this case today. How do you think it compares to the CM 690 ii?

I wouldn't be able to give you an honest opinion since I didn't do too much research on the 690 ii. I was stuck among buying a Corsair 650D/600T/300R and the Arc Midi. I know the price points are all over but the crazy amount of space for its size was what won me over.

I own both actually, the 690 II sits as an HTPC and the ARC Midi is my main rig right now. I would have to say for a mid tower the water cooling ability is the best in its class. The reason why I say this is because they have made the case slightly larger in width allowing a top mounted radiator to be kicked out away from the motherboard. This allows a push pull setup to happen easily. My only gripe is I kind of wish they would have sacrificed one HDD mount in the top removable cage to accommodate one more internal 5 1/4 bay. Other than that I believe the case is top 3 for midtowers.

I have the Arc Mini and my gf has the 690 II. I would have to say the function and modularity of the Arc case for things like watercooling is better than the CM 690 II. However, in general, the fit and finish of the CM 690 II is a bit better in my opinion. That being said. I wouldn't trade my case for hers if she paid me. I love my Arc.
