This is step back, not forward. Congrats for support of longer rads and bigger fans.

It looks exactly like my case...I'm disappoint, specially with the horrid grid showing beneath the fan filter (lower front intake portion).
I absolutely hate that in my case xD

Sadly I have to say this looks more of a step back to the original 690 styling rather than an evolution. And why have they made that front dust filter support even chunkier when it's the first thing to get chopped out in almost every modified 690ii?

Not sure exactly what I was hoping for but this is not it.

Maybe it will be better in the flesh?

I'd go with a full mesh panel, and no 5.25 drive cut outs...that kills it for me, same thing with the squares showing beneath the mesh...yuk.

Hmm, I was hoping for more of an improvement on the aesthetics side of things- it looks no different than the 690 II. Looks like I have no reason to "upgrade" to the 690 III - I will be sticking with my 690 II for the time being.

The N200/400/600 look way better, front panel wise.

The N200, 400 & 600 front panels look like monstrosities in my opinion. The N300 & 500 look quite nice however.

I'm more of a Lian Li/Fractal kind of guy, more sober, sleek looks are my thing.
