I want to recommend this LED , got differnent colours, fits perfectly, powercable goes throug the watercooling holes but of course it needs seperate powersupply. But thats ok for me.

I use mesh/screen filters. just make sure they are not magnetic, and flat...some of the newer filters have a slight dome to them.

It's not very fair to compare the 690II with the TJ07 is it? tongue.gif

In the UK, the TJ07 costs anywhere between 4 to 6 times as much as the 690 II, so it's clearly in a different league to the 690 II yessir.gif

In other news, I've got some pictures of the latest addition to my 690 II, a Noctua NH-C14.

An absolute monster compared to my tiny HD4350 biggrin.gif

State side the TJ07 is a 350-400 dollor case. To be honest after looking at one up close...I dont get it. It looks nice, but not nice enough for a few hundred bucks. IMO any case that cost's more than $150(usdm) is insanity... I likes mah CM690II biggrin.gif only thing the TJ07 has going for it is the clean looks. But I have a hard time seeing my gaming rig's guts inside it. but thats just me.

Oh of course it's not fair to compare them smile.gif My CM 690 II Adv upon release set me back just over $200NZ and the TJ07 still goes for $500+. I don't see $500 value in that case however so am glad I got it for a much more sensible price.

Yes, and if you look at the background, the photos were taken in Vancouver.

A truly beautiful case and I can't wait to convince my boyfriend to let me use it lol. Right now its for our server but I don't think a server is worthy of going into such a beautiful case.
I figured they would be pricey there as well. They certainly are still expensive in both the US and Canada.
Great price you got one for there. I hope you will soon have the opportunity to put some tlc into that fine case!

Nice cooler!
I wouldn't try to compare a 690II with a TJ07, or even my previous 690II with my current 932. They're all different cases with different designs and features. I only paid $79 for my 690II A, so your price ratio would apply here as well!

I could see my stuff going into one real easy! But they are too expensive at that price, over 400 bucks with tax and shipping for me to get one.

That's for sure. When was the TJ07 originally released? I think it was back in 2006? I don't think that Silverstone even makes that model anymore, so whatever stock of "new" cases any shops have are all that are left. So they can still get the big bucks for them.

Count me in the Unmodded 690 II list please. Finally i have the chance to post some (bad) photos of it:

I love this case, all the hardware parts were very easy to install in it. I am also going to replace the stock cooler of the CPU as soon as i find some cash.
It is my first build so the cable management is not that good, but i'm happy as it is.


Tell me what you guys think, any suggestion/critic is appreciated.
