It has excellent room to upgrade for water cooling and a second power supply. I get idle temps of about 18-19c and load of 32c running 1.5 vcore and 3816mhz on all three cores, running a aftermarket heatsink though.
Its a great case, but If you have money to burn and your temps arent that bad or you arent starved for room i'd keep the case and buy some other parts. Judging by your sig rig a new gfx card liek the 4770 would be rite on the money for you.
All said i'd deffinately recommend the haf 932 for anyone looking fora great value case, i mite post up some pics of it on the weekend when i tear my comp to pieces.
I definitely dont have money to burn haha, and that 690 does look like a good deal (at first i pulled up the green one on newegg for 99$ and wasnt sure why you were speaking so highly of it lol)
temps are an issue right now, stock amd cooler is 58*c under load, waiting on my friend to give me money for my old zalman 9700 or trade me an extra Danger Den setup he has.
after that im pretty sure im going with a gtx260 216 core ZOTAC
which brings me to most likely needing to upgrade my PSU, and for 260$ the HAF 932 and CM RS UCP900 combo sounds good to me.
after that i just want to switch from my 3x 16mb seagate 250gbs to 32mb seagate barracuda 300gb
and in dream land i'd finish it off with a hardware raid and danger den block for the 260
