I have been given the chance to review the mid sized CM690 from CoolerMaster, and I have to admit, I'm not quite sure if this case will hold everything inside my rig. I am skeptical because even in my full sized tower my 8800GTX barely fit at all. Skepticism aside, I'm going to take what I have and
Mike checks out a well priced mid-tower chassis from Cooler Master today which certainly isn't short on features. Today's article will take a look at one of their recent entries into the mid-tower market, the CM690. It takes some of their tried and true features and mixes it with a liberal dose of
This sleek, black enclosure sports a black mesh front and top with chrome dividers, tool-less installation, internal cable management system, and enough fan openings to create your own hovercraft. A bunch of other neat, little options are included, but I will mention those in the review - no need to

This is a great case for water cooling. It has a lot of room to work with. Motherboard tray holes for hiding wires. Can support quite a lot of fans and will nicely fit a 120mm radiator in the back and a 2x120 on the top (but it requries one pops off the top mesh). I only wish there were more drive bays!
Had this case for 2 years and what a performer. Looks flimsy but has held up very well, aside from the top USB/eSATA/audio jack area.
Very rigid, light steel chassis and a great amount of space. This thing has extreme air cooling. 2 120mm fan mounts up top, one 120mm up front, one 120mm out back, a sucker port and adjacent 120mm mount on the bottom, 2 120mm on one side panel and a trap for a slim 80mm fan on the the other. Much of the front and top of the case is highly ventilated, with a slim sheet of light porous plastic insulation covering the grated metal mesh exterior.
If you dont like flashy.Need something good for cpu cooling this is the case FOR SURE.Im a music producer and when i built my computer i went through tones of articles trying to find a case that would perfect for my needs.Its not quiet with the original fans and the side fan.But i changed them all to a more silent fan and let me tell you..i cant hear crap and the cooling is unreal.Im ruuning my quad core just under 30.Great case .If you dont wanna spend alot..This is it
i didnt know that this case would need to fully take out the whole front for dust cleaning/putting in an optical drive and it could snap and the top fan installations can be a little harder then other cases. but hey for the price i gotta admit looks good and its cheap
Great sized case that is easy to work with. Great value for the price. Provides excellent CPU cooling. Side panel fan was very noisy (was due to the sound of the air flowing through the grate). Added a mesh on top of the fan to muffle the sound.
