Overtime I have checked out many computer cases which offer a nice look but fall short on quality or real features. This case is really nice, it has a solid construction as well as features to keep it quiet and stay cool. Check out the video below. Also below is technical information about the case and where you can buy it for a good price.

The CM690 comes in 2 forms, one is the plain case and the other is the Nvidia Edition. The plain one cost about $70 while the nvidia will cost about $100

    Howdy, Will you be making a follow-up piece? My partner and me have used up some time checking over your web pages and surprisingly enough you touched on one thing we were talking about only the other day with our dentist. We often hear ourselves arguing with the smallest of things, isn’t it foolish?
