      "The Cooler Master CM690 II Basic Edition case is a full tower case shrunken down to a mid tower size. There is just a ton of room on the inside, which made for an easy, almost flawless, install. Apart from the requirement of having to remove the front panel to install 5.25" bay devies, the mounting process was a breeze."
