    the green one is the power switch and power on LED, the red one is the reset switch and the LED is the HDD LED.

    wow thats looking great,how did you manage to get such a good paint job without taking it all apart? i mean like the hdd cages etc.

    btw,they put the damn price up of the 690,its like £10 more now which takes it over £75 including delivery i think,

    too much for a case for me,where you buy yours from?

    Oh my dear god that looks amazing. I have always loved the CM690 case and have wanted to get one for so long. But I've never seen one looking this good before haha :)
