Problem solved thumb.gif Just swap them out... you now have the USB 3.0 version. Im doing it.

The price ain't bad but I believe CM should give these out for free to their recent 690 customers wink.gif.

I'll hit them up to see what they think biggrin.gif

I wouldn't suggest buying their windowed panel. I bought this case and it already came with it, the grill on the window restricts too much airflow vs the honeycomb on the non-plexi.

Does anyone have any idea if they plan on selling the rubber grommets separately?

Decided to put some life back into my 690 standard, excuse the pics, taken with my phone camera, took 3 days total, should have left the paint for a couple of days, but i couldn't live without my PC that long! Result, already got a few scratches from side panel closing.
I'm quite happy with it other than that.

If i had more time hen i'd have sanded more and primed/laquered the finish, might have even spent some money on better paint but it still looks far better than i did at the start.

Looks awesome biggrin.gif

Have you considered painting the mesh panels and the PCI brackets themselves as well?

Thanks. I was thinking about the same blue for the top, front and side panel fan mesh, but a little cautious about going OTT and and blocking the mesh holes.

Alternatively, I have thought paiting the plastic trim blue and leaving the mesh black, not sure about how good a finish i'll get on the plastic though.

EDIT: Custom Window is next. I have the standard window panel but i think i've caught the case modding bug now, this was my first go at a major mod!

The mesh has big enough holes that you don't have to worry about blocking air flow with paint, just a light sanding to the mesh and some automotive spray paint worked for me.

Which do you thin would look better, the mesh blue, or plastic trim?

I love the colored mesh, you can check my gallery or rig for pics biggrin.gif

I even did the mesh on my fan controller and the look is nothing short of awesome.

Just looked, I'm impressed!

I assume you removed the mesh to do it, did you get any cracking/flaking when putting it back in?
