    How do you remove the CM 690 front panel?

    Hi,

    I've recently bought a CM690, however im struggling to take off the front panel. The instruction booklet shows a hand underneath just pulling away. I cant get this to work, as I think I might break it!

    Anybody else got one?


    Thanks!

    Haven't got one, but if it's like the centurian 5 which also has a mesh front you literally just pull the thing straight off. It doesn't come easy.

    i've got one mate and if you reach under the front of it there is like a gap which you can stick your hand in and just pull it off... it does feel like it will break but it shouldn't do... mine hasn't yet

    it is vhard compared to my other cases, i tend to take the side panel off and push in the plastic(or is it metal) plugs at the front holding it in, it lets it off much easier,.

    Yep hand underneath and pull, you'll probably want to do that every couple of months to clean out the mesh as it acts as a fliter and collects dust.
    Rip the front off and run it under a tap

    Wow, that took massive force, never had a case like that before. By the way, did anyone have trouble with the length of the cable for the front blue led fan. It's far too short to reach the mobo, so i had to reroute it
