Shame they didn't make a window stock. I don't really see the point in painting the interior black if you cannot see it.

Yes- a shame- great case, but that's the lement I always hear. Looks like the same case with a black interior and a couple of tubing holes in the back. Judging by the ominous count down page though, you'd think it was going to change our lives. Still the case is certainly worthy of an update, and if they changed too much, people would riot.

Bet they have just re-vamped it for easier use with water cooling

Looks like they made the top with a little more room so if you have a rad you don't have to mod it to fit the fans.

Probably also done away with that cheap little fan on the mobo tray and opted for a panel so easier block installs can be done.

Who knows, maybe CM will listen some more and give a window version too. Didn't they end up making a windowed side panel for the current 690?

Hopefully they included a hole in the mobo tray for easier heatsink backplate installation like most of their newer cases have as well.
