My new CM 690 II :

A few notes:

Had a tough time with the HDD brackets. Once the I fit the HDD in the holder, I had trouble putting it inside the HDD Cage. The pins on the side just kept coming off.

A little more space for cable management would be great. It's a pain to work with an mATX board. I think I'm just going to get a modular power supply.

Stock fans are horrible.

Removing the bottom PSU dust filter will require the removal of the PSU!

No dust filter on the side.

Overall though I'm pretty satisfied.

This seems like quite the community and I want in! I have a cm690IIadv and would like to join up. Let me know what yo guys think, I wold really appreciate any feedback (be harsh I can take it).

Just a really cool angle of her guts.

Front usb3 mod...no need to buy the new top panel and loose my e-sata!

Dual plenums (slim interior and one exterior), honeycomb mesh removed, Antec Tri Cool fan set to exhaust. This once pointless gimmick now actually cools my mainboard and lowers chassie temps!

A few mods here and there, overall its been a dream build and even better performer. Check out my profile for a full break down of my setup and more on the chassis. More pics to come!

Hey guys, I am a CM 690 II Advanced owner. Yesterday the front mesh (the ones of the drive bays) was bent accidentally while moving the computer to another room sadsmiley.gif . I tried putting a piece of wood of exact dimensions in it an hammered but nothing changed. Any Ideas to make it flat again?

Maybe when you get a chance you could fill out your Sig Rig details.

Use the RigBuilder at the top right corner of the page.

Hey cgull thanks for the response. The power supply is a 1000w Kingwin Mach 1 tubular modular psu. I didn't mod the power unit at all except for a new fan and I threw a couple of of badges on the side biggrin.gif Here's a pic...

As far as the kill switch and rheostat on the rear they are for fan control, specifically the side panel & window fans. I can regulate the window fan speed and kill it and the right panel fan completely. The rheostat is a board I made myself, it has two 3 pin fan headers (one to power one from fan). The kill switch saves me the frustration of having to shutdown the computer and unplug fans just to take of the side panels. Another pic...

Hope that answered your question cgull, I took a look at your cm690II and i really like the fan controller in your +1 pci slot. More questions/comments are always welcome.
