Cooler Master Begins Shipping Windowed Side Panel for 690 II Case
 
One of the more common complaints heard about the recently released Cooler Master 690 II Advanced, was the lack of an optional side window, leaving the quality black interior and excellent cable management hidden behind metal.

They have fixed the price then. I saw it on their store at the end of February, price was 39.99. That's why I bought a refurbished Storm Scout instead of the 690 II.

Newegg will probably stock this, they carried the original 690 and Cosmos window panels.

I really, really wish they would just have one model with it, and one without it instead of having the end customer hunt around for the panel if thats what they like.

I'll be honest, its what stopped me from buying both this CM690 and the Previous CM690. ALthough I have done builds in them.

lack of a side window is a major fault with the 690. and selling a side window for $40 makes no sense considering the full case can be had for $80 when on sale. They should just make the side window default and up the price a bit to compensate. it's a solid case and a few extra $ isn't going to deter people from buying one. But $40 for a side window is ridiculous.

It's a much better looking window than the old CM690 window but still $$$ for a window...
