Hey how's this compared to the CM690 - what are the cons/pros of both?

I like to show off so this case comes in mind and the window tint is pretty good too, but the 690 has been out for ages and has gotten some REALLY good reviews...

The Cooler Master 690 is a great Mid Sized case. It has Looks, Style and plenty of room. Tooless hdd bays are flemsy looking and to me it lacks a few other very important things.



As you can see in the Photo above the 690 builders did not take Wire management too seriously with this model. Also, there is no rear access point for CPU cooler so if you change your CPU down the road, and you have to install a bracket in the back, the Board has to be removed. Another downside is the plain steel inner casing. While it is slightly thought out, you will have to cut your own wire access points into the Mobo tray.




Outside the Coolermaster 690 has a very nice look and some thought to Airflow but not much. there is no blow hole at the top for heat evacuation.
.



The access point for USB and E Sata are great but at that angle can be cumbersome. The Scout is more at an angle to give a better access to these plugins.

I hope this answered some of your question.. Get the Scout. It is worth the extra money.

If I'm going for a Xigmatek HDT-S1283 Dark Knight CPU Cooler, will G.Skill PI ram ( the ones with a huge heatsink) get in the way of each other or the case? Otherwise i'll just got with the NQ

Just be careful, I'm not sure how dual accounts go as far as OCN is concerned..

Make sure that you don't get both accounts banned.

I would recommend speaking to admin or another mod that may be able to help you with this.

Also, this case looks incredible.

I've now tried two Cooler Master cases, the CM 690 and the HAF and the Scout looks phenominal! Starting to really love the quality, build, aesthetics and design that goes into CM cases..

Nice club!

Thanks I feel the same way. I was really not a CoolerMaster fan until I did this last build with this case and it sold me on them big time. I want to try a Cosmos S next.

Just curious how many of you who have the case actually lan?
I still want the case but the handle is kinda awkward xD

I heard that there is not much airflow to video cards and the Top fan MIGHT interfere with large CPU coolers + flimsy HDD's holders...oh can u wire cables behind the mobo?

Just want to clarify on those issues (still getting it)!
