Another help me Case shop thread...

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Need a Mid Tower case in the + / - 100$ ball park, that can fit two 6950's. Mine clock in at 11.3". If possible suggestions with fans, side window and LEDs would be great.

Thanks.

I've been looking at the CM Scout and NZXT's EVO and m95 but I'm worried about space issues inside with my 6950. I have a full tower now that is going back but I just don't care for its size.

The CM 690 II doesn't have a window but is otherwise a fantastic case.

Sleek aesthetics, good cable managment, good stock airflow with plenty of room to expand, tooless installation, can fit radiators on the bottom and top if you're into watercooling or might want to in the future. One of the best cases I've worked with.

You could always custom side window afterwards, I even heard that it is possible to buy the side panel with window separately, and perhaps, there is an NVIDIA version of it.

pulled the trigger on the CM 690 II. Newegg says it will be here by Friday. Current case goes RMA Monday. Anyone have any issues with newegg RMA?

Hi,

Here's the 690 II Adv optional window.
Can't do it yourself any cheaper plus hassle.

Yep agreed! Unless someone wants an even larger window.

Nice little space you made on top of your desk for the computer.
