Guess it's gonna be the CM690 II Advanced for me sometime in the near future then. Thank you, sir and miss.
You're welcome! I'm very glad that I was able to assist (or really, "contribute") in helping you arrive at a final decision.

I've been thinking of the same thing for the kinda near future. I've heard that the 690 II has problems with noise and vibrations. Can anyone shed some light on this?
post #11123 of 19729
Well as far as I know, although I'm not 100% sure, the 690 II has about the same noise levels as the original one, maybe a small bit higher due to the larger holes in the mesh? (need confirmation about this though)
As for the vibrations, the only thing(s) I could think of that would cause more vibrations in the newer model is the new HDD rack system, although, again, I'm not sure.
Edit: From some review "The biggest danger here is drive vibration" but I'm not sure that it's a large problem anyway.

They've implemented vibration dampening material in each of the little drive cages to try and prevent it, but I'm not entirely sure how efficient it is at this stage.

... Drive vibration? C'mon. Any drive worth it's salt now a days can handle vibration. Any case worth it's salt won't be too bad on vibration. Unless you get a $20 case...

With "drive vibration" I think they referred to the HDDs making some vibrating sounds that resonate (correct word?) through the case, not that the HDDs would take any damage from it. I might have misunderstood you right now though.

Well, they're saying that since this HDD bay structure is modular, it has the potential risk of making noises due to vibrations.

Ah, I see.
You could probably fix that with a bit or rubber I guess, if it really becomes an issue.
Off for school now, have a great day everyone !

Well I might actually be able to just trade cases with him if I tell him I'll put his computer together and do the cable management and whatnot.
So.. A good idea to move from a CM690 to a CM690 II Advanced or not..?
Personally i wouldn't, but i think the general consensus is that the II is a better case.

you would think...

I've got to say my goodbyes to the CM-690 i've just ordered the Corsair 800d so i'll have one going spare soon, it has been a great case to me and my first stand alone case ever. I did look long and hard at other options but this was the best for me at that given time, but because i have BIG plans i need a BIG case.

So just to summarise the cm-690 is legendary (as you can see from the amount of pages in this thread) well worth it and unless you're looking at a serious water loop or 2 this case will see you for a VERY long time!

goodbye to you my friend!
