I know it's not the best performer, but it sure does look nice. I've always been a fan of the Zalman aesthetics, but I haven't owned one since the 9700's were actually pretty good. I haven't even checked up on cooling at all really considering this old WC setup is keeping my CPU at under 50 C load, usually around 42-44 C depending on ambient temps. Might as well throw this here as well, recent pic of my rig -

And yeah, sidepanel is bulging. I've just been too lazy to take the dremel to the lip on the motherboard tray, and when I'm not feeling lazy, I usually forget to do it. That will be corrected...one day. I haven't had much desire to go any further with this case. I'm pretty happy with it. I think it's time to get a new project case...I was thinking NZXT Phantom, but I don't know yet. My second rig could use a new home.

A 5" LCD. It's not even hooked up anymore though, never really could find much use for it that didn't give me the odd hassle. I was using it for Windows Media Player for awhile, but it wasn't that great since it's not touch screen and only has RCA hookups.

But isn't the only way to achieve positive pressure by having a sealed case? I mean, how can positive pressure be achieved with the CM 690 or the CM 690 II when it's as extremely ventilated as it is?

Every 2 weeks or so..

The CM 690 can only have a bit of positive pressure, becauseof, as you said, all the ventilation

But regardless it will still be positive pressure

Whoa. Every 2 weeks or so! That's an impressive amount of dust you have floatin' around in your place there!

Anyway, wouldn't achieving positive pressure need some fairly powerful intake fans and maybe just one exhaust? Or, maybe no exhaust fans?
