One recommendation: stealth that drive bay!

Here's motivation. Behind that is a dual-bay res and optical.

Ah, you mean taking the original mesh-piece and sticking it on the bay instead of the plastic thingy wink.gif

I'm sad to say, today is the day I finally (semi-) retire my faithful CM 690 Nvidia Edition. A case so good it has housed my main rig for around half a decade (if I had to guess). It has served me well, and will always stick out in my mind as one of the best cases ever made. The sheer amount of imitators are proof of that. Anyway, here's the final pic of how she stood before I took her down for the last time. As you can see, she has acquired many scrapes and wounds throughout the years, battle wounds if you will, but never shown any sign of weakness. This post is a tribute to the many years served well, to best case I ever owned. Maybe not the flashiest or most expensive, but it has it where it counts.

450

It's not actually blue by the way, there are other pictures hidden throughout this thread which show its true colour. It looks black most of time, or a very dark hunter green, to blue like the pick, to brighter green. Depends on the light, it's some type of "flip" paint. This case has had many different looks though, and a lot of different hardware go through it since I first bought it.

Sad to hear it is retirement time sad-smiley-002.gif

I can not imagine getting rid of my case (yet!!!), but then I have only had it 12months.

It is amazing it hear it has lasted that many years.

What is your next build in?

Hi, I own the old CM690 version from about 4yrs ago? And I was wondering if this mobo could fit there: asus Maximus iv extreme-Z z68? And also the Maximus V gene Z77?
And if u could even tell me what coolers should fit as well it would be terrific! I've heard Novtua D14 is a good one but seems big. Thxxx

I have the 690ii but i did a quick scan of some specs for you:
the gene mobo will definitely fit as its a small board..
the extreme SHOULD fit.. its basically atx but wider ..roughly 27 cm.. best to pop off the side panel and measure, mite stretch over the mobo tray a little.

the noctua cooler's height is 160 cm..its big, once again measure the height of your case ..coolermaster website says 155 will fit as long as you dont have a fan on the top slot of the side panel.
cooler specs:
http://noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=34&lng=enfor

another factor with the cooler is whether it would clear your ram slots and according to noctua they cannot exceed 44 mm:
http://noctua.at/main.php?show=compatibility_gen&products_id=34&lng=enfor


and on the gene , the cooler is fine as long as you dont have a large heat spreader/heatsink on the back of your video card.i.e the cooler will sit very close to the card..

best advice measure your case,that way you can eliminate anything thats too tall.. and check the dimensions of any ram you buy,
by all accounts its a great cooler, but big..
good luck
