    I just got the CM690 case (which is even nicer in person), and the CM Silent Pro 600w modular PSU today.

    I'm still unpacking them!

    haha, yeah it is AMD.

    Also how do I go about getting the front panel off? It feels like I'm going to break it...

    I think that has slots that pop in, just be careful taking it off. If not, look for some small screws on the sides, but I don't think it has them.

    Start at the bottom where you can get your hand in and pull. Its got 0 screws, its just tabs keeping it on. I just built a CM 690 build 3 days ago and had the same issue.

    Just go slow with it and ease it off, don't yank.

    also is it suppose to bend a little inwards towards the bottom of the case? (speaking of the tray) Edit: yeah it is ok.

    OK thanks... the front sure doesn't like to come off lol. I got it off though.

    Nice, glad to see you picked up the case, sounds like you got a great deal. Any crazy plans with this or just gonna toss it together? Either way cant go wrong, CM cases are awesome, eventually wont even need any mods as they keep listening to their customers.

    haha, yeah I'm not going to mod it if I don't have to. I like the case so far, only complaint is the front panel.


    so here is a picture:
