  1. The 690 has five 5.25" drive bays while the 690 II has only 4.
  2. The 690 has a gray interior while the 690 II has a black one.
  3. The 690 the buttons and the inputs on the sides while the 690 II has them on the top.
  4. The 690 has no CPU retention plate access hole while the 690 II does.
  5. The 690 II has a Removable 3.5" hard drive rack while the 690 does not.

There might be a few other differences, but those are the main ones.

There are also numerous differences between the 690 II Advanced and Basic and they are covered in the video.

Everything I listed was a difference between the 690 & 692.

I forgot the 5.25" Drive difference though.

No, you listed the differences between the 690 and the 690 II Advanced. The 690 II Basic does NOT have the GPU Holder or the External SATA Dock. . The Advanced comes with three 140mm fans instead of the two 120mm in the Basic, although both have the same 140 fan openings.

Since the OP didn't specify between the Basic and Advanced neither of you provided a complete and accurate answer.

I have to agree with this.. but again as 2cables mention it might have minimal impact ..

I have one installed as exhaust ..
and you can actually feel the warm air blown out...

but since heat rises I guess the top two fans can also handle that w/out the 80m fan

To get the filter material out, you need to remove the front panel completely. Unscrew the 4 screws at the bottom to remove the plastic piece. Then carefully bend the 8 metal mesh tabs that go around the filter and hold the front mesh on.
Those tabs will break eventually, so this is not something you should do frequently. It helps to warm the metal before doing so. A hair dryer works well enough.
Honestly, the best way to fix this is to remove the filter material and cover the mesh with pantyhose. That way you can get the dust off fairly easily without taking everything apart.
I took the filters out and just blow the dust out of the machine with my trusty Datavac periodically. The filters get clogged quickly, and as you pointed out, are not very easy to clean.
Wow, is it that difficult? I was googling a bit and I came across this: http://forum.coolermaster.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14025

"They are removable, but not as easy as the atcs 840. Specifically speaking of the power supply and the top and bottom of the case, however the front filters are easy to remove and clean similar if not better than the atcs 840."

Anybody else wana chip in with their say?
