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.
