Someone I know got that when it first came out and they didn't like it, it was too confined, the pics I saw of it they had the PSU sitting out on the counter; it looks interesting but at the same time it looks like a dust magnet.

Last winter I resorted to creating some 'ghetto' filters (nylon stockings ) but when summer came back - off came the stockings. Just like the ladies.

Now that summer is waving goodbye, I'll be able to reintroduce the stockings again. Again, just like the ladies

I had a low powered air compressor that I used to used to clean/clear non-electrical components, but that literally went up in smoke a few weeks back so as far as pristine conditions go - my computer is not. By the same token, it's certainly not at the level where it affects noise/temps.
Dust filters are a god send. Ever since I've had my CM690 I've had dust free components

It's quite a small case though now in terms of component sizes nowadays, and it does get a bit toasty in there during hot weather, so once I've funded myself a new graphic card. The next upgrade after that might be retiring the old girl and getting a larger case.

Oh, that does look nice. The inside looks a lot better for cable management and slightly more roomy.

If there was an Nvidia Edition of that case, I'd get it in a second

looking at computer cases
I'm looking at computer cases and cant seem to make up my mind. I'm mainly looking for good air flow rather than style or prettyness. It needs to be between $50-$80 and support Micro ATX motherboards. Outside usb ports would be nice on the front or top
