CM 690!! how can you say it has bad thermals?
It has space for 8.....8!!! fans, Place them wherever you want, I replaced the stock fans with 4 coolermaster R4's and i get temps as if i were on a test bench

Antec is crap. I don't even think I'd get one of their cases if it was free.

I have a HAF912 right now and it's got pretty good cable management. However it only comes with 2 stock fans. If you have a bunch of 120's lying around, load that sucker up!

Besides it's only $60, and can accomodate 2 200mm fans, 1 120mm on the back and either a 120mm or 1400 on the side... or upwards to 6 120mm fans. I know it's not as much as the CM690II but considering the space given, you wouldn't need more than 6.

When it comes to a mid-tower, I think the HAF 912 is a great value.
