I got Zalman GS1000SE. Plenty of room with three fans preinstalled. 2 on top and 1 at rear, you got space to add 1 more on bottom of case. It also got holes for water cooling tubes. Best thing is you can easily remove/install HDD's from front without opening case.

I ordered the Corsair H60 Hydro Cooler a couple of days ago and then decided to upgrade my case.
It was a tough choice but ended up getting the HAF-932, and it is huge. It doesn't look that big on the internet.

I was also considering the 690 II that the OP bought but I am not too fond of the styling, the raised edges with silver inserts turned me off.

That case is definitely not big enough

Prefer Nvidia edition cases like the CM690/CM690 II Nvidia Edition or the Silverstone Temjin TJ10 Nvidia Edition that keeps the green minimal.

As for the case itself, then it's a great case being an HAF X. I'd probably go for a case like the HAF X myself if I didn't move my computer around a lot as I take it home and bring it back to Uni, so a large case would be annoying to keep moving whereas I find the CM690 II is fairly small for a high performance case and still plenty of room inside.

On the plus side, dust won't show up as much on the green parts.

But the HAF X is a great case.

It seem this one has a few extras the regular HAF-X doesn't.

Im just not sure I like that much green ....


Meh , I was just Window shopping for now anyway. Ill probably go with a regular HAF-X case when its time. But plenty of time to decide on that
