I dont like the CM690 that much because of its looks, it looks to plain imo. I like flashy lights, windows, big fans.. etc.

I like to show off to all my friends that "No, i don't own a dell, and yes i did make this myself"

Well i just ordered everything and I went for the price.. i got the Raidmax Smilodon.
Newegg.com - RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black SECC STEEL ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply - Retail

All because it was $40 after the rebate and it has a removable motherboard tray.

Removable motherboard trays are overrated...

Been through something like 4 cases which haven't had one and I haven't missed a thing...

And whats with the 80mm rear fan?...

Props on the new case tho.
