Reviews from the Web
Below are reviews found on other web sites for this product submitted by customers.
Is it worth your hard earned money? Yes. Are the options inside endless? An astounding yes as well. What you have here is a mid-tower chassis designed for not only those who are in it for looks, but also for function
This new chassis comes in two flavors this time around; the 690 II and the 690 II Advanced. The biggest difference between these two models is the addition of a hot swappable HDD bay that is present in the Advanced version.
Cooler Master is releasing the case as both the CM 690 II and CM 690 II Advanced. Each case will be a mid-sized steel chassis that is visually the same and have most of the same features, but the advanced model will include a few additional goodies and a higher price tag than the non-advanced model.

This case will hold everything that you need in a computer. It has a good build quality resulting in a great sturdy case. I have been a fan of Cooler Master cases for awhile and this is just the next case from them that I have owned.
I've had the CM690 for about 2 years now. Bought it for only like 80 bucks back in the day. For 80 dollars you get very good cooling options with a possibility of 2x 240 radiators! There's a lot of HDD bays comes with an SSD adaptor. Fit huge videos cards if you want.
At the end of the day for 80 dollars you're getting a lot for your money. It's not the highest quality case, but for 80 dollars you can't complain.
This case is big, it's like a small full size tower. There's room for 3 large GPU's, water loop holes, lots of sapce behind the MOBO for easy cable managment. room for 7 drives including 1 SSD. cools really well. This has been the one of the best cases I owned. I but an extra 80mm fan in the rear and in blows directly onto the cpu blackplate for extra cooling. This case could be priced higher, there's EVERY OPTION you can think off. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a mid size or even a full size, this case is big.
I like cooler master products, 2nd case Ive owned from them. Case feels a lot more expensive then it is and looks it. Comes with a switch to turn off the front LED. Airflow in this case is fantastic; the amount of different options for mounting fans. Lots of space for an ATX motherboard. Only thing its' missing is the rubber grommets for the pass through for wires. Cable management is a breeze with this case and lots of space on the back. For price it doesn't get much better in my opinion. Used the external dock a few times and it is very handy.
This case is very subtle, attractive (inside and out) and really surprisingly quiet. I was expecting a case that is mostly mesh with 3 fans to be much louder, but I can barely hear the computer running.
My only complaint would be that the tool-less hard drive bays are kind of a pain to install hard drives, you have to push the drive retaining pins into the rubber stoppers very hard.
Where to start, this has got to be the most amazing case I've worked with. The front panel contains no I/O and simply pops off for easy access to the drive bays and front fan. Front fan can be mounted in two positions, LED can be turned off. The drive cage is an amazing design. The top mounted front I/O is a little difficult if the case is up on a desk. Lots of room for components and great for airflow.
