  1. if you have a slot in the front, use that... mounting an ssd in the back is a pain.. I have cm n600 case... i mounted it, but its a pain, and cable managment is "super easy"
  2. im looking at 690 iii and I flat out dont know how to route cables to that ssd... with my n600 the ssd is right next to the bottom hole for the cables, the ssd ends and the hole begins, and it is just enough to plug in the last sata power connector and a thin sata cable... I bloody dont know how it should work in your case... although the side panel of 690iii is shaped so, to put more cables... but I dont know... maybe with extentions... are you working with the case right now? nothing works?
  3. gee guys i dont know.
    i have only the upper cage installed (CD + HDD + Fan Controller).
    i dont want to install the lower cages.
    there is a dedicated space on the back (and theres a lot of space there specialy on the 690III).
    i just dont friking know what to make of it?
    i found onlt 2 pics on the web and even then i couldent figure how they innstalled it.
    here take a look:

    or do you mean how to physically make it stick to the panel? it sais to use m3*8 screws on the back side of the ssd and then just hang it (like a wall clock). Here download the manual, page 12. http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mid-tower-cm690-series/cm693/

  7. tell me if the wires have enough room to be plugged to that ssd. Is it hard to close the back panel or is it ok?
  8. btw did you got a manual with your case? I frieking either lost mine or it wasnt there, I am not even sure at this point.

    this is wierd....
    it seems i cant find main either... (im using the PDF for now)
    and yea, the back got enough space (thats why cm made a small belly to the back\side panel.
  10. just finished.
    regarding your question on cables,
    wel i think it depends on the type of SATA Power connector your PSU have.
    iv got Corsair GS700, not modular, it was just about enough.
    only issue i feel is that those SATA on the Middle of the Cable are FAT, so they may be very close to the MOBO plate surface. (i guess if you have a modular PSU you can use the FLAT SATA connector. (the SATA DATA is no problem!)
    and like i said befor.... there is a very nice Belly on the side cover of the Case.... thumbs up for the thinking way of CM!
