    Here are some last minute pictures of the CM 690 II chassis along with the Cooler Master GX line of PSUs and V6 CPU cooler. There has been a lot of buzz around the new case and it lives up to the hype. Upon first inspection, the case does seem to be a valid successor of the original 690. The most obvious and certainly very nice feature is the top SATA port, which allows you to plug in drives without any extra casing or the need to open the chassis up (Ed. note: no the hot girl does not ship with the chassis). Next up we have the GX series of power supplies, which will be available at 650 and 750W soon.

    Last, but not least we have the V6 and V6GT CPU coolers. They differ only in the number of supplied fans and look of the top cover. The V6 holds a single fan, with the possibility of adding a second one, while the GT already ships with a pair along with an LED light on top of the cooler, which may be turned on or off. These coolers have a V shaped arrangement of heatpipes so that each of them has direct access to the air flow of the coolers.

    I know, my CM case didn't come with a cute girl either :cry:

    Dunno if I'd really care much for an external SATA port. I don't have any naked HDD's sitting around (they're either in cases or in my case).

    Don't quite get the allure of the HDD dock. Reminds me of the ProtectSmart bays HP was pushing for the longest time which were really just an internal cage with a USB-B connector going to an internal header (meaning standard external HDD in use), marketed as some super-awesome backup solution.

    In any case, would be very handy for technicians or any sort of backup operator, but so far as gamers are concerned, who really cares?

    Does having girls presenting your new products make them any better?

    It would be better if the girls where hot.

    I quite like the idea of not messing with internals and cables to add on a drive at a LAN party.

    yeah I got excited about the hawtnesses but that V6 is massive, like a TEC or something. I thought it was gonna be V6 (small) V8 (medium) and V10 (massive) with a v12 thrown in.
