somoene selling it secondhand?
you can just ask MSY if they can sell it without the psu... i believe they will be happy to sell it since the psu alone will get them a healthy ~$60... and i dont think secondhand case from the net will be economically beneficial, as the postage alone will be well over $20

Hey guys. I have a question for everyone.. I think I may have asked this before. but I never followed up on it. but I will this time.

I have the CM 690, (Love It). but I don't have a window.. I really do not like the window side panel that they offer.. I don't like where the window is located.
I've been meaning to mod my current panel and put a window on it. but it just seems like a lot of work, although I did a lot of work when I painted inside the case black.. look at my pics at the club link under XGUNTHERC if you'd like.

So, I wanna do the window. how easy is it guys.. and about how long does it take?

Also here's a possibility. Is there any other Cooler Master Cases that have windows that I can take the panel from and use with my current case. Like a different model with a window. or even a different brand name case. I know the metal little clip things that lines it up would probably be different on another brand. but the CM ones are the same I think. If anyone has done this. or knows of a case that I could use the windowed side panel for my CM 690. I'd really love to hear it.
. Thanks and let me know

edit* also I'll soon be adding a Q9650 to my system.
I'll add pictures and let you guys know how it goes. I'll get it Thursday. I'm very exited.

Damn. I must say thats probably one of my favorite. that just loooks very good. I really like that. will you do that for me.. I'll pay you and send you my panel. lol.

Here's the thing. If anything. I'd like to do it the way you did. that just looks so sweet. but I don't have the tools to actually cut the Plexi Glass.. I can cut the panel with a Dremel or whatever.. but I can't cut the plexi with that.

Your window looks good. and I really like the Chrome Letters. Do they rattle with the fan on the panel. or they stay on pretty solid?

Here's my modded 690 with the absolute best cable management i could achieve without using a dremel for holes.
every possible fan is mounted including one in the drive bay.

xGuntherc, this is my first post in this thread, I've looked through about 50 pages or so, there are some pretty amazing cases in here.

I have a CM 690 running almost 100% stock but very, very soon to be modded. I had a custom case built for me about 3 years ago that is outdated that I'm going to be temporarily using as my build case while I mode the CM 690.

I've ordered 11 fans (yes, I ordered a couple extras), 9 120mm tricools (red) and 2 80mm tricools (also red).

I came --- this close to ordering the side panel from newegg for the CM 690, but decided I really dislike it. So I'm also in that boat of wanting the side panel, but not knowing the first step on how to make one. Plus, I live in an apartment near my campus with three other guys, and space is pretty limited for tools and such.

Anyway, for my plans, here they are:
Cutting the metal/mesh out from the top/front fan slots.
Replacing top/front fans with the tricools
Possibly finding some "free flowing" mesh to put in front of the tricools (any suggestions?)
Adding a 120mm fan to the front in the bottom 3 bay slots (I've looked at mounting brackets, but they seem a bit overpriced, and I'm pretty sure I can point one in myself. I also don't want the 4 in 3 converter they make, simply because I've heard it's damn hard to replace that fan in there, and also I don't really need the hdd space, I'd rather have better airflow).
Ducting the above mentioned fan to go straight to the cpu fan
Improving my cable management - it's already pretty decent thanks to the CM 690 case, but it could use some improvement.
Adding the 80mm fan behind the mobo.
Adding the side panel window (taking it down to one intake on the side panel, going to try and place it blowing on the gfx card)

So that's my list of "desires"

*sigh* Now I just need the time.

I saw that over @ Cooler Master's Forums, really nice.

I just cut out the plastic on the top panel, I'll try to get a pic soon.

Oh on another note I finally got my standoffs after like 2 weeks.
