Cooler Master Prepares Limited RC-690 Pure Black Chassis

Cooler Master plans to take another couple of hundred all black limited cases to the field. After Cooler Master Cosmos Black Limited, now it's turn for RC-690 to make its debut in black dress. Since the case is very well known to all of us, and it will be exactly the same, except for the fact that it will be all painted in black and have limited labels attached to it, I won't talk about specs. Here's a direct link to the manufacturer's page here, just in case. The Cooler Master RC-690 Pure Black is expected to become available in September.

[27/04/2009] UPDATE: We've received new info on the case. It's going to sell as an ordinary model, not as limited chassis like we first reported (forget about the limited number badges too). Also, Cooler Master said that the case will be available in June for exactly € 79.90.

Looks pretty sweet. Hopefully it won't be to much more than the standard one. Beats having to spray paint the inside of it black if you plan buying the window side panel for it.

Isn't it mostly black already? I mean its cool because it should have been this from the very beginning, but what's the added price they're going to tack onto this?

If it's anything like the Pure Black Cosmos, it's going to be a ripoff compared to doing it yourself.

ha probably. Personally I am thinking what is the point of making the inside black if it doesn't come with the windowed side panel. Seems like a waste. :wtf:

The inside being black is the bonus, I would say to me thats worth and extra $30 - $35, too bad I already got one, but it is black inside anyways :p

Something I can do for $5 in 1 hours time myself. I wouldn't really call that worth an extra ~$35. Maybe thats just me.. :rolleyes:

This kind of things never stay limited, in 4 months it will be mass produced and end up at Fry's and Microcenter just like everything else does.

thats a good point why on earth doesnt it have a windowed side panel probably just to make more money because everybody that buys this case will want to see the inside and buy the side panel :shadedshu

It's good to see them offering a "Pure Black" that's not super highly priced!

Thanks for the heads up W1zz :)
