    Looks good. But I'll be happy with my CM690 for a while. I added a 140mm fan underneath the DVD drive.

    Obviously the likes of Frontosa will seeing as they're one of the distributors.

    It's not that different, the external HDD dock would be useful though.

    The back looks a lot different, and it looks a bit different on the sides. I am still happy with my CM690.

    I like the fact that it has the external hard drive docking bay feature and that the hard drive cage can be removed, as well as the front fan being able to be positioned anywhere. Most of the placement for fans has been upgraded to 140mm from the original 120mm.

    They've also got pre-cut holes to better manage cables and there's a bit more room behind the motherboard. I have a CM 690 currently, and I can say I've tried to manage my cables to the best of my ability, but it's very hard. The right side panel struggles to fit on properly with the mess of cables behind the motherboard..

    I'd gladly sell my 690 to get the advanced version of this.

    Unfortunately, no. They have signed up many once-off buyers in the past, but it looks like they're going to go through the same process other distributors have.

    There are quite a few on this forum, including myself, who run reseller businesses and will be willing to order one for you when they arrive.

    You can ofcourse also keep an eye on pcint.co.za as they have excellent pricing and perhaps it pops up for less than elsewhere, just remember to factor in the shipping costs if you are not nearby.

    These things are always cheaper expensive when they first arrive, so I wouldn't jump on it as soon as it lands.

    Ah that sucks. Well if you can get hold of it send me a PM please. I'll also keep a look out on pcint.

    Your last sentence makes no sense?

    This is because I type faster than I think. ISDN hands, 14.4 brain, you know.

    I meant these things are always "expensive" when they arrive and not "cheaper" as I said.
