I would just in case.. if you need extra parts in the case you break them - like I did. There is an extra filter so if you use side fans. I broke my VGA card bracket (dont ask why)

need some help.

I had the 690 I, now I'm on some small case and want to go back to the 690 II

the internal clearance, between the top panel and the case itself, is just 25mm height?

I wish to use a 30mm rad INSIDE the top panel, not inside the case.... could I do it?

I highly doubt you would fit anything but one of those black ice low profiles. Standard sized fans barely squeeze inside.

I had to cut the plastic grill away because the screws stuck out too far.

I think you would be able to fit an extra 5mm in there. I have 2x 120mm fans in there. They are 120 x 25mm and there is a little more breathing room thereafter. If you take some of the plastic grill off the top of the case I think you should be okay. I am about 90% on this. I will be putting the Corsar H100 cooling rad in the top soon. It is a 240 x 120 x 25mm. Case in point - i think there is enough room to fir another 5mm of space if the grill is removed. This would be an easy mod imo.thumb.gif

Yep it's really easy. I've been using a craft knife to do it.

I used a dremel with the pencil extension. Took all of 5 minutes for the top, another five for the front. Came out quite clean.

All sorts of external n stuff n things.

the plastic seems to have 2-4mm, so I think it will do.

I'll try to measure exactly with help from friends, and get the case
