^ I like the way those cases are arranged, but the overall volume of the inside of the case seems to all be the same.. The 800D has a couple more inches of room from the Optical bay to the MOBO.. But these cases are a LOT bigger in person than on the Net.. But I'm going by the space I have and judging from there.. The CM690 II Advanced does look enticing.

And yeah, my case is a mess.. and being dusty doesn't help either.. I blow it off when it needs it.

Compare..

You can also remove the bottom 4 HDD racks in the 690 to open up room for a rad. On top there's a single hotswap trayish thing you can slide HDDs into. Though apparently you have to set it up for that, bunch of warnings and stuff on CM's site about it.

IMO the 800D appears to be an upgraded 690. Bigger, more cable holes, separate heat zones, more swappable drives. It's also $300 while the 690 is $100, if money was not an factor I'd definitely go 800D, otherwise I'm sure the 690 is gonna impress me.

^ It's also similar to the Mountain Mods Pinnacle 24. Same dimensions, just more options and arranged a little differently. I'm just planning fro a build around summer time.
