it's really a very nice case. i find the thermaltake cases to be too hard to manager wires. the cm690 is very easy for wire management. and it's very "open" inside (although with all the stuff i've shoved in mine, it's not so "open" anymore)

You will not be disappointed. it's a very good case.

I love mine. I just wish it came with a side window from the factory and not have to pay extra for one of the L shaped windows. Cable management is really easy with the 690 and it gives plenty of room with ample fan mounting locations to keep your internals nice and cool.

Yep, I only have one complaint about this case. And that's the way the front panel connects to the chasis.
After a couple of times of taking mine off, the top right side doesn't want to go in all the way.
Other then that, it's a slick case. Keeps everything nice and cool. And highly modd-able if that's your thing...

Yep great case but i only have 2 things to complain about:

1. The front cover is hard to take off and yea they plastic pin things don't work very well
2. The side cover is a bit flimsy and the hooks are easily bent

Other than that its just a great case. i love the mesh covered 5.25 drive bays allow for more fans and looks great if you have lights in the case. You'll beveyr content with this high quality highly moddable case
