Cooler Master CM 690 III Mid Tower Chassis Review
Peter Donnell+ / 9 months ago
Cooler Master have gone back to the drawing board, aiming to improve on one of their best ever and most popular chassis designs, adding a third part in the now Trilogy of CM 690 chassis. The 690 and of course the 690 II are fantastic cases, but they’re getting a little old now.
Cooler Master are on a bit of a winning streak at the moment, they have had several award-winning chassis hit the market recently such as the 352 and the N200. So I’m really looking forward to seeing if the 690 III is worthy of adding to that list. With a price tag of just under £100 it’s not a cheap case, but the specification sheet does promise quite a few features.
Today we’ll be looking not only for improvements on the old 690 II chassis design, but also the premium quality and features that we have not only come to expect from Cooler Master, but also to justify the premium price tag.
The packaging is what we’ve come to expect from cooler master, a nice and clear image of the product and the purple box in the corner with a few specs. As you can see, we have support for 3 x 200mm fans, 240mm radiator support and room for 10 SSD hard drives.
More information around the back of box highlights notable features such as the top tray storage place, fan and radiator support, stealth SSD mount behind the motherboard and the slide out dust filters.
All the usual bits and pieces needed to install all major components are included, as well as some rubber grommets, cable ties and an internal speaker.
