well the cm690 comes with 3 fans.
the 900 comes with 4 including a big exhaust on the top.
cm690 is great for wire management since its got cable routing options on the front and back side of the mobo tray.
I think the 900 would keep tings cooler, but not by much.
I have 2 exhaust fans(top&back) 2 intake(front&bottom) and i can still add 4 more.
cm690 also has 4X140mm slots(2side,2top) for the fans.
th 900 is on sale at buy.com and the cm690 is on sale at microcenter.
