Use the cable management options the 690 II offers you and sleeve the visible cables. If the ribbon cable bothers you, there are two options: Either get a SATA drive (which just eliminates ribbon cables altogether) or get a round IDE cable.

Maybe you could also take a picture, it's easier to help that way...

i suceeded pushing all of my non modular tx650 cables in to the back of the case , i moved my gtx285 2 slots down and i"ve put a fan on theback of my hdd cage , i didn"t know there where holes made for putting the fan in there , i expected lower gpu temps but it didn"t happend ,altought ma hdd temps are lower because the fan is preventing my gpu from pushing hot air to my hdd.

Does this case have dust filters? if so, are they easily accessible?

Yes and yes I binned mine as I live in a relatively dust free environment so I could be wrong on the placement, but the CM 690 had them in the front and bottom of the case and the CM 690 2 also has them in the front and bottom too.

Yea, they do work but they also restrict quite a bit of airflow, as do the plastic mesh things which look cool? (is that their point?) which many people, including myself have removed for better airflow. I also removed all the filters due to airflow restrictions, and im quite happy to clean out any dust that gathers anyways, if there is any . On the 690 the 5.25" covers have a "foam" insert that acts as the filter, pretty easy to remove if you bend back the little tabs that keep them inplace, and there is a filter on the bottom that is infront of the psu for a fan that can be installed screwless?? it was too close to my psu so a fan wouldnt have fit anyways... but there is another filter on the front 120mm fan thats really good, so ive kept that in until recently where i needed to remove the fan for space for my radiator. Hope this helps

Pretty easy actually. See how the metal mesh is held in place by the folded bits? Just fold them back and slightly separate the metal mesh from the top panel. Then you just slide the filter out.

Alternatively, you can just try and tug the filter out. It's not securely fixed to the top panel.

Cool that was very easy

Now wait for my Adapters for the Top Panel Fans

Front Panel Dust Filter Remove or Not ??

I dunno, I'd prefer the dust to be caught in a filter rather than sucked into my computer....
