This Cooler Master 690iii was a ugly old saggy boy. Half teared up chassis. It was picking up rust in my workshop for over an year.At last got some time in hand to pick it up for good. Tried quite hard to give it a good new look. And i believe im quite successful.Hope you all will enjoy it. Thanks for visiting and rating my MOD.

Very nice build with only a couple of things that are a negative in my viewpoint.
The optical drive detracts from the front and should be hidden by a cover matching the front fascia, and those corrugated hoses on the CPU pump to the Radiator are ugly in my opinion, i'm sure some people may like them.
