As cases go, the 690 II Advanced is pretty good at what it does: It’s a big case with plenty of room for appropriate cable management and sorting out the correct airflow. The manufacturers thought ahead and strategically placed hooks/tabs for cable ties as well.
It’s let down by the fans though which make far too much noise. In a home environment where it can be quiet the noise it generates gets distracting from time to time.
After much deliberation, my score for the 690 II Advanced is a respectable 8/10. It’s tough, it’s spacious, but the noise that the fans produce coupled with the difficulty of installing/removing fans from the top of the case were a letdown.
