Get one!!!


Then sell it and get a lian li (the penn ultimate sleek and minimalist cases) or silverstone if you like some slight bling . Good review

I like this one for a gaming htpc:
KustomPCs.co.uk - Lian Li PC-B25B Black Case
This one is a beast of a gaming case (6x120mm + a 120mm fan for cooling pci area optional)
KustomPCs.co.uk - Lian Li A71A Silver Full Case

Anyone know how the power button is on the 690? Its placed at an awkward position on the bottom side, and i just wanted to know if it is good.

i find its alright, but then again, my computer is on the desk next to me...all depends on where u are placing ur compy. some people say the switch is flimsy, its not. it just has a bit of give before it gets to the actual switch and its not gonna break any time soon. the tooless PCi slots are perfectly fine. ive got my 9800gtx+ in there and i move my compy around a lot to lans and i give it a beating, and it hasnt moved one millimeter.
thats my 0.02 on it. +1 for coolermaster for its pure style.

id get the cm 690, has great airflow (6 120mm) and great wire management, has the hole next to the psu... also has a sweet green window


and i love my 690 best mid tower imo. and power button is kinda in a weird position but still works fine and wont break anytime soon.

Yeah, I think I'm going to get the NV 690. I like the the green LED and the green window. I'm pretty convinced to get it, everyone is saying its a great case. I looks like the best one out there for under $100.

Haha. So you would definitely recommend it.
You should post some picks of your rig.
