it's roomy. it's bigger than almost any case that you would get if you purchased a prebuilt. I dont have experience with the the 300 or 900.

but it is narrower than a full tower and stands about 1 or 2 inches under the kneecap. (i'm 6' 1'')

I loved Gr3m1in's idea of putting the bottom intake filter on the front of the case so I decided to try it out tonight. I was surprised it fit perfectly, those little clip things hold it in place in the drive bays without securing it with anything else. I also made a cover for the bottom fan grill to give it a rounded shape instead of the sqaure shape it is stock to match the top one. I'm deciding if I want to keep it the way it is and put a fan controller in the last bay in between the fans or move the top fan up one and put the dvd drive and controller in between. Now I just need matching fans. Heres some pics:

does anyone think selling my rocketfish and getting one of these would be dumb. the rocket fish just takes up allot of room and it is boring me.
post #1868 of 19729
I believe this is a picture of a rocketfish next to a Centerion 5. Not really the same as a CM690, but there are similarities. If you don't like your rocketfish, I think that the CM690 will satisfy you. Espically since you can get one for about $50 from http://www.microcenter.com after MIR. So if you sell your rocketfish here on OCN, you can make a profit.
