If you have a CM 690 or the Centurion 590 Directron now has the RA-690-KWN2-GP
in stock.I just ordered one even though i shouldnt have.It would have been much cheaper to cut my own window but im to lazy plus i doubt i could do it better than Coolermaster anyway

http://www.directron.com/ra690kwn1gp.html

Newegg hasnt had these in stock for a while now.They did have an ETA of 3/12/08 but that came and went and now side panel.I was even on the auto notify list but i never received any emails saying they were back in stock.

Yeah thats the TU 155.I dont think its bad looking at all.I was just getting a few digs in at elmo..lol.He knows i was only kidding.Even if he hates my side panel...lol.I think Thermaltake use's the same window and some of the same cases as rosewill check a lot of Rosewill case's they look just like thermaltakes on the inside

Thermaltake Soprano DX
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133040
Thermaltake Tsunami
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133132

Now look at the insides of these Rosewill case's. they look the same as Thermaltakes Soprano and Tsunami

Yeah, I noticed that before, too. Not just the ones you just mentioned. There are cases from the same brand or even different brands (like your example), which may look different from the outside, but the insides are identical! I think (guess), the inside (frame) of the case could be stamped by the same fabricator, then these pc case companies just add their own panel designs.

Here's one example:
Sunbeam Transformer case (Now that's one beautiful side panel. Hard to cut by yourself, too.)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811166014

An XClio A380Plus (Big f**king fans, and nice side panel.)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811103014

Now look at the interiors of these cases, they are exactly the same.
