I have a CM 690 II, I love it, very spacious, lots of room for harddrive and expansion bays. Great case, looks pretty good too.

thought my last commment was so good about big ugly cases that I copied and pasted it again for your enjoyment! Kinda seems like these huge desktop Pcs with 10 fans and tons of space are like Lambordinis driving around on a crowded California Freeway. A small Itx case with a 780 and all in one liquid cooler will provide 99% of gamers all they need in performance, take up virtually no space and look much much better doing it. My next desktop will likely be a Ft03-mini silverstone with one 780, one ssd, one liquid cooler and one fan, no optical. I can fit it anywhere, I can clean it easily, I can even take it easily on a plane or anywhere else for that matter and take off all the sides in 10 seconds with no tools! So in reality my little Mini Itx can do more then this Huge Asus Case like a Decathalete Athlete while a Big Case is like a 1 trick pony! Less is more and really is overkill to buy anything more, I know you can to have bragging rights or something to do as a hobby but needing and wanting are different animals. I can also have my local computer shop do it for a couple of hundred bucs and let them worry about any problems that arise with a 3 year warranty by just dropping it off and picking it up later that day or the following just like you would with a Car

These Cooler Master CM 690 cases are great for simple server builds. I used a CM 690 II series case when building Linux file server. The case was inexpensive and works great. Some people don't need or want flashy cases and this one delivers where it counts.

Hey now, I work and play in a studio, and if my side panel were acrylic, I'd have major issues with electromagnetic interference, considering my rig is only 5 feet away from where I record instruments that are based on electromagnetic manipulation (electric guitars, basses, microphones, etc).

I really like the Coolermaster Haf xb and the n200 series.........
they need to make a mini small tower... Right now I would have to go with Silverstone line or Corsair my favorite cases are the Fortress FT-03 mini since with 3 removeable sides you can make a really clean and accessible build. My future build. No optical drive, no hard drive cage, Just one ssd and one video card and a modular sff silverston power supply. I can open all 3 sides with no tools and look at a super clean build. Love it! Would probably have Maingear build it for me for the right price lol... until then My Alienware Laptops keep on trucking over 3 years on my m17x sli and over a year on my m18x sli used excellent warranty support on both.

Aesthetically, it's ugly. Cooler Master cases are so generic and ugly with no real difference from the competition. Only cases from them that are good are the HAF series cases.

I actually like the looks of this.

You might just have a different style; by your opinions I'm guessing you like the style of Raidmax and Thermaltake. I personally love Fractal Design and BitFenix. I gotta say, some of Coolermaster's cases are AMAZING (cosmos) and some suck (elite). With they would get stuff right consistently, I love their Cosmos.

Nope, I don't like Raidmax or Thermaltake, I like the ones you like actually among a few others.
