Looks like an interesting take on the venerable CM 690 (original version) with some nice updates. Excellent review as usual. I did notice one small mistake though. On page two you state:
Quote:
In Figure 5, you see the front panel of the BUC. It supports three external 5.25” devices and one external 3.5” device. The 5.25” bays use meshed covers, but not air filter is available.
I believe that should read "no" air filter. Not a big deal, but I though you would want to know so it could be corrected. Feel free to delete this portion of my post afterwards.

not sure why they need to use a back panel connector for the USB3 front that just looks like they were to lazy to do an internal cable

Because not all motherboards with USB 3.0 have a USB 3.0 mobo header.

Post Case may have unthreaded MB mount pillar

I picked up a Buc case a Fry's to replace my aging Thermaltake Daemon (it originally came with a number of 80 and 90 mm fans). I liked the Buc's features especially the four HD bays that offered the built-in sata data/power connectors that helps reduce cable clutter and offer hot -swapping.

Minor problem however, the MB mounting pillar in the upper left part of the case (near the 4/8 pin CPU 12V power connector on most MBs) was not threaded. The returns person at Fry's checked out my concern and provided me with the new replacement. Got home and ran into the same defect.

This time, a trip to Home Depot to get a 6-32 tap to thread the hole was my solution. Just something to check as my experience was 2 for 2 with this defect.

Bottom Line-Nice case!

System: ASUS Rampage III Formula, i7 950 CPU, Windows 7 Ultimate, XFX HD6950 graphics, 12 GB Patriot Sector 7 memory, Patriot 120GB Inferno SSD and Kingston 128GB SSDNow Series V, with a couple of 750 GB HDDs (2.5")
