I have to chuckle at "convenient" features like these; because unless you're planning on using 3/8" tubing for your water cooling build, they're completely useless (or unless you have the $$ to put out for a step drill bit, which can run upwards of $80 ).
3/8 tubing is all you really need to use now :P Most people no longer use 1/2.

Funny, CM Does it and people cry foul but NZXT did it and called it EVO and its okay.

This has a point of Merit, they made design changes to the initial design, instead of confusing customers and calling it just a 932 again, they choose advanced. I think that is perfectly acceptable because they are not the Same.

This isn't the only case they did this with tho. They pulled the same stunt with the 690.. There is an Advanced version of that which gives you a hot swap dock or something on top if I remember correctly.

You can do a lot more with the Advanced though than the original too. Which again warrants the name change and difference in models.
It would be one thing if say all they did was add USB 3.0 or something.
But they have actually added enough features IMO at least to warrant the name addition.

Default Advanced, is cool, if it's done properly.

I bought a CM690 II Advanced edition, and found it doesn't fit the H70 backplate on P67-GD53. I wish they could make a perfect case that fit's everything properly, i'm going to try and get the HAF next.
