CM690 or Lian Li PC-7b Plus???

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
The thread title says it all, which would you prefer??? Will both hold a Tuniq tower without any sort of modification? Also, with the CM690 i noticed the PSU is mounted on the bottom, does this make cable management difficult?

Any info much appreciated, thanks.

I'd probably go with the 7b+ over the 690, but thats just my .35$.

If you dont mind cutting holes for cable management, Id say go for the lian Li. I've had both cases and can tell you that if you leave it stock, the CM690 is much easier to work with cables. I have cut holes in my Lian Li PC-7+ and now its great. Hope that kind of helps.

The cable management on a cm690 is great, even with the PSU on the bottom. If your PSU is modular then you will have great results with no mods. I have no clue on how the LianLi would do for you but others here certainly think highly of it too
