You have really nice fan controller, but I don't understand why do you use internal optical drive in a superb case like Cosmos S?!

This thing is completely unnecessary these days and if you already have the money for Cosmos S, buyin' the external optical drive won't be a problem for you.

:toast:

I think that the internal optical drive can really disfigure the look of a cool case and my case look 50% better without that silly ancient component. See for yourself...

Really? How is this "completely unnecessary"? Almost all of the software we buy today is still in an optical format, not to mention DVDs/Blu-ray movies. You would prefer an external? I think 99% of all users have an internal optical drive on their rig.

Oh and BTW...Welcome to TPU!!! :toast:

I'm all about aesthetics when it comes to the PC chassis. The internal optical drive look good in a chassis from HAF series or in the low budget "box" chassis, but in a chassis like CM 690, CM 690 II & Cosmos S it looks just wrong becouse of the mesh in the front and slight oval shape of the chassis.

I love techPowerUp! and their chassis reviews. They are so nice and simple with high quality photos. I buy my CM 690 over HAF 922 after I read the awesome techPowerUp! review.

Thanks for the welcome!

it's always sat like that since I've first had it, it's completely connected and no problems... I think it's how the connectors connect into it and pull it down at the corner

My CM HAF X case came in on Friday, so I guess I would now qualify. No build yet, but hopefully soon.

It's understandable. The HAF series are a bit too rough for some, and NZXT cases can be pretty nice looking.

When it comes down to it at the moment I can't justify replacing my CM 690. Just not enough reason for it.

Edit, I'll get the clubhouse members list updated soon, I've been putting it off for a while now and it's gotten to the point where I'll need to take some time out of my day to tackle it.

Edit #2, Got everyone added that wanted to be.

ok so i would like to be added to the club, i do have a cooler master chassis,what i dont have is a clue what model it is!
dimensions are: 205mm W,440 mm H,480 mm D
its all aluminium and did come with some waved extrusions that covered the front as you can see from the bottom at the front (which isnt removable without leaving rough edges) but
1) the lower fan was blocked by years of crap filling the rear or the extrusion/front of fan holes
2) the upper waves extrusion covered the power/reset switches and drive bays
3) it looked crap with them on :)
it looks like this:

Edit:
apparently its a cooler master mystique 631
