A great tip, I'll look into that after warranty expires.

Thanks, it's mostly for CAD and some digital contents creations.

Are the lower drive bays riveted in place on this case? Meaning, if I only wanted half of the lower drive bays (as I have seen some do in this thread), does it mean drilling out the rivets, then cutting and riveting back in place?

All of the bottom ones can come out, The only ones Stuck in place are the TOP 2

Note you cannot only take a certain amount out, So you either have All of them or JUST the top two

If you want any other combination you need to mod the bottom drive cage by using a dremel to cut the walls in half ( I am guessing here...)

To take them off there are a couple of the screws under the case and a couple connecting the drive bays to the mobo tray.

Thanks antipesto! That's pretty cool that it is removable.

Are you referring to the original CM 690? I mean, I think most people are going to assume you're referring to the CM 690 II since that's the newest one, and the CM 690 II has removable, modular HDD bays.

To me, it sounds like you're referring to the original 690, so yep: it does indeed require some modding. But if you're referring to the CM 690 II, then it doesn't require any modding because the HDD bays are removable except for the top two.

I'm referring to whatever model they sell these days.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119137 Which, I'm guessing is the latest model. When you say the v2 has removable modular HDD bays, do you mean you can remove has many as you want (except the top two) or is it like what antipesto93 said.... all but top 2 can be removed, but the ones you remove come off as one unit that can't be further divided without cutting?

One other question.... is there enough room to stash a lot of power cables behind the mobo tray? I have a PC Power & Cooling non-modular PSU and an Antec P182 right now. The PSU is at the bottom and there is a tray seperating the bottom from the top area of the case where the MB is. The tray sits an inch or so above the top of the PS which creates a nice, fairly hidden place for all the excess cables to be jammed into lol. I'm wondering if there is a place like this on the 690? I've browsed this thread and seen some folks build little housings and place them right in front of the PSU (to hide the cables) but that would block airflow from the lower fan and I don't want that.

The one you linked is the original CM 690, and this is the one that does not have the removable/modular HDD bays.

Here's the CM 690 II which does have the modular HDD bays: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119216

Anyway, the original CM 690 (the one you have) requires physical modding in order to remove the bays. As with all modding, you can either ask how to do what you want to do, or you can carefully examine your case to see how you can do it. But don't ask me because I don't know how to do it.

So anyway, it's not "v2", but instead it's the CM 690 II. However, the model number has "692" in it instead of "690". It's just a new case that Cooler Master has added to their lineup.

Gotcha, ok thank you for the info. I don't have the case yet... I still have my Antec 182. I like it but it doesn't breathe well enough so I'm looking for something more along the CM192 lines. It looks to be about a perfect case from what I can see.

How about hiding the cables?

Couldn't think of anything easier with the CM 690 II I have both the older CM 690 and the new one. The new one has some improvements over the old one in regards to cable management like holes cut into the mobo tray next to the board for routing the 24pin tidily. They also removed the large ridge on the motherboard tray which prevented a lot of people from being able to put their side-panel on without a big bulge. The CM 690 II is a lovely case to work with!
