post #1 of 4

Well I'm building my new PC and I love the look of all these cases, I just wish the CM 690 & Cosmos had come with a pre-built window, anywho suggestions please. And No Antec 900.

Thanks for the input guys, 690 does look good for modding, the tempest looks complete already though tbh. I hear that build quality isn't good on it? My mate said it's pretty good but nothing compared to his Lian Li.
