Product on Review: CM 690 II Advanced (RC-692-KKN2)
Manufacturer and Sponsor: Cooler Master
Street Price: £75
The CM 690 was without doubt one of Cooler Master's top picks amongst gamers and enthusiasts the world over. In light of this Cooler Master have given this prodigy a face-lift named the CM 690 II. The CM 690 II is available in 3 different flavours - Standard, Advanced (Europe) and Plus (Asia).
Lately at Vortez I have been getting through a series of case reviews, many of them being either immediate releases or exclusives. The CM 690 II Advanced that I will be taking a look at today has been available since the beginning of the year. It's a case that I have been wanting to take a look at for some time now and I'm glad the opportunity has now arisen.
The CM 690 II Advanced sports a large interior even though its classified as a mid-tower case. It can house up to 3 graphics cards and has the space to accommodate up to 2 radiator water-cooling units and the ability to house big CPU heatsinks. The Advanced also comes with graphics card retention bracket to ensure the graphics card is given added stability and an external docking station is positioned at the top of the case for SSDs. There are many other aspects to the CM 690 II Advanced so lets crack on and begin looking at this case.
Cooler Mater's Take:
Cooler Masterís CM 690 quickly became a top-selling mid tower chassis due to its sleek design, full tower like features and exceptional value. Today, we have raised the bar again, with the new CM 690 II, which comes in regular and advanced editions. The new version enhances the original CM 690 killer features with a seductive all-black interior, added capacity, superior cooling system and user-friendly design.
