Cooler Master Announces the CM 690 II Advanced Black & White Edition PC Case

Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, power supply, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer, today announces the trendy and stylish CM 690 II Advanced Black & White Edition based on the feedback from market.

Optimized Cooling System

Time tested as a titan among mid-tower cases, the CM 690 II makes it possible to take advantage of excellent airflow and water cooling options to vastly reduce temperatures on system components. The roomy interior space of CM 690 II Advanced Black & White enables users to install up to 10 fans, with enlarged mesh design for superb ventilation. Users can accommodate 120 x 240 mm radiator at the top and bottom for superior cooling performance. It also supports up to 2 radiators for water cooling units, and larger CPU cooler, such as Hyper 612 PWM.


More User-friendly Design with Improved Expansibility

Keeping the ideal filter design of previous generation, the new CM 690 II series is also equipped with filters on all meshed area and bottom for easy maintenance. With the tool-free 5.25"/ 3.5" HDD bays, the 1.8"/ 2.5" HDD and SSD adapter, CM 690 II series can also fully fulfill the demand of storage. In addition, CM 690 II Advanced Black & White includes an external SATA dock; users can install HDD here with protection. Utilizing users' feedback, Cooler Master's engineers improved upon the CM 690 II's winning design by greatly increasing the CPU mounting hole size to accommodate new Intel Ivy Bridge mounts and AMD rear mounting procedures. Its roomy space can also contain long graphics cards, such as AMD Radeon HD 6990. Additionally, rubber grommets have been added to aid in setting up a clean and professional cable management layout.

Newly phased in USB 3.0 interface

Loaded with features, the CM 690 II delivers as the ultimate mid-tower for any purpose. With the announcement today, Cooler Master will begin offering improved Advanced Black & White Edition that will maintain its image with a performance and value update. This is accomplished by implementing the exciting new internal changes and exchanging the e-SATA port for two additional USB 3.0 internal connectors. The I/O on the top also offers a more convenient way to access.

The improved CM 690 II Advanced Black & White will be available for €99,95 and will hit the stores around the beginning of March.

Hmmm...not bad. I like the design. Certainly is appealing to the eye. But with only front intake, can't say it would have swayed me over my Sniper. I do like having the large side screen and fan over my 460s.

Wait a min...is that a white LED fan? Oooo...no, must resist...

but a solid piece side panel leaves it prime for modding your own side vent/window/vented window/etc.

Eh, If I'm gonna buy a case, I want one with already good airflow. I have enough struggle with cable management and such..

Which brings me to another question..with only 1 visible intake and exhaust fan..where the hell do the other 8 fans go? :confused:

EDIT: I see a second intake in the middle? Core fan perhaps? looks small though..

Wow... I always liked the general look of the 690. The all-white version looks somewhat plain (not to mention how hard is to find white bay devices) but this puts it over the top. Good show CM :rockout:

Aw maaaan!! I presently have an original 690 II Adv with a black and white theme...

The all-white one was news to me but that's probably at least partly cause it says "Asia only".
