Default Anyone have a Coolermaster 690?

I just got one of these in for a customer build today, and I'm happy I did because I was considering this case for my personal build later this year.

After opening it up and looking it over I decided right away I was getting this. It had a simple elegant look/design... what looks to be some decent cable management, a great price, and plenty of air flow.

Then I pushed the power and reset buttons. God what a stupid design. It ruins the whole feel of the case for me. Who thought it would be a good idea to have to push the power button at an angle. I for see these breaking off when someone who doesn't realize this tries over and over to push it straight back.

So my question to anyone who owns this case. Am I making a big deal about nothing and would get used to it. Or does it just bother the crap out of you as well.

Thanks,
Will

P.S.
I'm also considering the COOLER MASTER HAF 922 RC-922M-KKN1-GPhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119197

and the Antec 900 Two

if you don't like it then you don't like it.
There are plenty of other cases that offer the same features with different designs for the power buttons.
Just browse newegg for a little bit and troll the forums to see what other people have in their signatures.

I have the CoolerMaster Haf 932 and it has plenty of room to put what ever you want in it ,the only down side is that it has no filters.

duno i had both. I didnt like the 690 because the buttions were on the oppisit side of the case from me. I didnt relize how tall the 932 is with wheels though...
I think id go withthe 932. more room and more airflow.
