    Great review

    Its a tough choice between this case and the CM 690 II Advanced which is $89 and has most of the same features.

    I played with this case at CompUSA last weekend and loved it. The latches on the side panels are incredibly convenient, and there has to be at least 3" of space behind the motherboard tray (more than the 800D has).

    If I ever see it for about $130 shipped it will be moine.

    I like your reviews Darksaber because your cable management is always clean. This case has a ton of features for just a mid-tower and I like that it comes with white LEDs and not blue, red or green.

    Nah dude I stuck my finger through the CPU backplate hole on the mobo tray, and the side panel was about to my first knuckle on that finger, which is 2.5 or 3". With that much room there would never be any problems trying to get the panel on because of all the wires smushed together back there.

    Moral of the story is that there was a lot of room back there :)

    Here in Spain it costs 159€ in most places (in some others more xD) and the Silverstone FT02 costs 181€. For 20€ more I can purchuase a much better case.

    How do you think the FT02 is much better? I was thinking about both this or the FT02 for my next case.

    FT02 is supreme for aircooling

    Well, it has better fans, has foam in the case to reduce the noise, 90º motherboard mounting and almost no plastic. I think FT02 is the best case for air at the moment.

    Nice cable management. It's a really nice case, but I don't like the permanent LEDs.

    A 5970 won't fit in the CM 690 II Advanced and maybe 6970/6990 also. The 600t is larger.

    No fan filters. This is really disappointing.

    A 5970 will fit but you will have to remove the bottom hard drive rack for it.

    I just picked up the 690 II Advanced and hope to grab a 6970 also in Q1 2011.

    Right now first thing i'm going to do before rebuilding is replace the stock fans that come in the case.

    Thinking about going with :

    Xigmatek XLF-F1455 140mm 4 White LED x3 two for top of the case one infront.
