Hey,
I remodeled my room and therefore I needed a white PC case. I then bought a used CM 690 II in white on ebay. I already had that case in generation one before.

After unpacking the Case I realized that it is the version without USB 3.0 and without the HDD dockingstation. That annoyed me. Another thing I realized as I saw the case standing in my room is that there'll always be a contrast in the front, cause no external drive is in that white color. That annoyed me more.

So I started searching for another CM 690. I then saw the CM 690 II Advanced Black & White. It has USB 3.0, a docking station and the mid part of the front and top are black, so you can mount black external drives and you have no contrast. The interiour black suited me too.

Sadly I had to recognize that this case isnt produced any more and it is rarely sold on ebay. So I now think about do some modding (would be my first time). Herefore I got some questions

Do you think it is possible to mod a "normal" cm 690 to the black & white one? Where could be problems (perhaps the silver line on front/top?)?

Would you use a black or a white one as basic? On the black you already have the interior, the front and top mesh in black. On the white you have already the sides and the outer front and mid panel in white.

Do you know such a project from other users?

Just buy some spray paint and start spraying smile.gif I did mine from White to Custom wink.gif

After that I got bored, so did some painting again biggrin.gif

And the silver parts are removable, you can also paint them, or let them be smile.gif Have fun modding.

can I use any spray paint?

the thing is that i wanna have docking station and usb 3.0 would be nice, too. I now have a complete white version without docking and without usb 3.0. Im now thinking about buying a used black one with docking and usb 3.0 and change some parts, oder buy spare parts direct from cooler master. If i would buy a used black one I could sell it with the rest parts again..

Depends on your location, I also had some thoughts about ordering parts, but they would come out pricey, shipping would cost a lot more. Search for cooler master e-shop, I've found some refurbished cases there once, worth a check. The docking part is nice, but i rarely use it, and for usb 3.0, I bought an extension cable and just threw it on the desk near my keyboard smile.gif
About spray paint, I think any will do, there are also numerous guides on the on painting cases and etc.
post #19487 of 19729
yes i already looked at cmstore.eu but buying dockingstation, usb 3.0 etc is almost as much as buying a "new" used case with that features

Did anyone remove the upper hdd case so it can be added to the case again? I think it has rivet (dont know if thats the right word)?

I've also done it smile.gif you have to drill out 4 or more rivets and it's done.
post #19489 of 19729
drilling em out is not the problem. What to do if you wanna add that cage later again?
