    Looks pretty good. If I could, I would suggest an 8-pin adaptor to rout the cable behind the motherboard. And I would put the HD cage back in to hide the PSU cable (I have the same PSU).
    Yeah folks - great advice, buy modular PSU's:)

    I agree with putting the HD cage back in to cover up the excess cables that you tied up:rockout:

    I disagree: he gave the windowed panel to a friend so he won't be looking at the mass of cables whereby hiding them in a cage seems counterproductive.

    I think I would...
    But I have the side panel off quite a bit on mine, but then again it is a cruncher:)

    Nice cable management there, especially with a redundant PSU.

    I really want to get the windowed version of the 690 II Advanced, but can't, because I live in Europe:shadedshu:. Price search-machines have it as a product, but there's no e-tailers that actually sell it. So if I would like to have the freaking windowed side-panel, I would have to order it from a CM Parts store in Holland. Total costs: 16.90e for the window and 12.50e for the shipping = 39.40e JUST FOR A WINDOW. So I'll have to go with something that comes with a window :(. And no, I can't mod it, because we have no tools, and if we did, I would just totally f*ck it up.

    CM 690 II is a great case, I knew the HDD cage snapped out, but does it really break down into smaller bits like that?

    Get the normal case, cooling without the window is better anyways, then get the side panel later, their sidepanels aren't cheap, I had to buy my 690's side panel for $25. I wonder if the 690 I side would work, if so look for one of those?
