So far loving it!
Got it at 3.6ghz with turbo off. Got some more room to go also, it's on a X12 multi right now and am going to bump it back up to X14 in a little bit and then test for stability again. Intel burn test got it to 57c yesterday at it's current clocks but never breaks 46c while gaming. Did 10 runs on high with IBT but might have voltage too high, 1.46v currently...Got some tweaking to do still but loving it so far....

Dear lord Kamikaze, everytime I see your system I want to pick up a DFI Board and a Tempest Evo.

How much better is the Tempest at hiding cables for non-modular PSUs vs. a modified Antec 900? I'm torn between finishing & keeping my Antec 900 mod, or finishing & selling and getting a Tempest Evo.

I say non modular because of some nice deals (TX 950).

As much as I love my Tempest EVO, it's not flawless. I'd have to say the CM 690 II is better at cable management than the Tempest but with effort the Tempest is capable of having great cables as Kamik has proven.

The CM 690 II Advanced was my second option. I'm just strangely attracted to the Tempest Evo.

My only concern with the 690 II Advanced is the side mesh, wondering if it "whines" like my Elite 341 did, or if it's made out of thicker steel, perhaps it's doesn't.

I prefer the look of the Tempest EVO compared to the CM 690 II. It really comes down to what features you want.

Tempest EVO is much better than original Tempest at hiding cables. original Tempest had maybe half an inch of space and you defiantly can't hide ATX cable well because it's often thicker than half inch.

I don't have CM 690 to compare to.

The indent in the side panel that hides the excess cables is mostly what makes hiding the motherboard cable possible. You can still hide cables in other areas but that's where I kept the bulk of my cables, they fit there better.
