CM 690 II Advanced

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've currently got a Coolermaster 690 II Advanced and a DFI 790FX-M2RS which is black and orange.

I'm hoping to sort out the horrific cable management I've done (I didn't really try after a while) and make the case look good.

So, here's what I've got planned.

Part 1) Side Window

I could do this myself, but I can guarantee I'll do something wrong so:

Sorted.

Part 2) Cables

The 24-Pin ATX cable I've currently got isn't really optimal for cable management and so I'll be picking up one of these:

Another problem I've got is that I can't seem to work out how to place the 8-Pin cable for the motherboard either. There's a small gap above the motherboard but an 8-Pin cable isn't go to fit as far as I can tell and so currently I've got it running across my graphics card and it looks pretty horrible.

Advice needed over here

Step 3) Shiny drive bays.

Hopefully will look something like this:



Can I achieve this by simply placing a black drive bay on some newspaper and attacking it with some of this?

Hopefully this'll look quite spectacular once finished.
