First mod - I wanted to blend the "white edition CM690" and the original one together. Enjoy.

I did, its Avery Vinyl, little bit of rubbing alcohol to dry out the surface and it stuck very well. I took a hair dryer to it to make it a little more stuck like heat wrap on cables..

liked the idea of the high color contrast. This is what made it almost buy the Corsair 500R..but with this case being just as good for my needs and $50 cheaper - was a no brainer. Only about $25 invested to mod it.
Good luck with your mod - I look forward to the pictures thumb.gif

small extra little mod - I decided to do away with the OEM fan window and go with a fresh blank look. This will also increase the pressure in the case a small amount especially with all of the fans I have in there.

Just when I thought the modding was done... I wanted to do something with my additional side panel that I didnt use. This was the OEM side panel that came with the case. I ordered the OEM window panel... thing is.. I just want to make it a little bit bigger and slightly different.
