Well maybe you'll get one if the price is real right - I wouldn't think that you wouldn't at least consider it in that scenario.

I agree that there's nothing really impressive about it. However, when considering what you get for this price, everything about this case becomes a little more impressive than it actually is. I mean, if we pretend that this case is $149.99 or something, then it becomes a very unimpressive one (actually, it would be a rip-off). But when considering its usual price of $79.99, its impressiveness really begins to shine.

Here are some of my favorite features that, when the CM 690 was brand new to the market, were usually found on more expensive cases:
  • Bottom-mounted PSU with vents on the floor of the case for the PSU's intake fan
  • Very easy cable management (and I don't even use those included brackets)
  • 8 fan mounts
  • Tool-less design for both the expansion slots and the drive bays
  • Nice side-facing, removable HDD brackets with rubber grommets that help reduce the noise of noisier HDDs
  • Pre-cut holes for water cooling, complete with rubber insert thingies to help protect the tubes
  • Large feet on the bottom to allow for plenty of airflow for both the PSU and an optional intake fan on the floor of the case

I could probably list all of the other features of this case, but these are my personal favorites. When the CM 690 was new, it was hard to find a case with all of these features at the $79.99 price point. So, that's mostly what makes it an impressive case.

i didnt mean it like that... i love the case.

what i ment is that my case was a plain jane CM690, not modded (yet) in the slightest... stock... nothing impressive about it.

Oh man. lol I can see it now because of how you said you'll be modding and painting it in the warmer weather! It's like you said "there's nothing really impressive about it yet, so don't ask".

Context clues.

well i removed it from the top and used it for the bottom because when it"s on top it"s not usefull and it"s blocking air and its much better than the filter from the bottom soo i"ve put it down there , i dont know about the front , i believe you can , just improvise.
