Cooler Master unveils the CM 690 III ATX case
The CM 690 and CM 690 II were some of the best-selling cases over the years, now Cooler Master is back at it this year with the CM 690 III.
The third revision features the same steel bodied mesh-like design with an entirely redesigned interior. The mid-tower case can slot in ATX-sized motherboards, and comes with a total of ten tool-free enclosures in which users can fit in up to three 3.5-inch HDDs and seven 2.5-inch HDDs or SSDs. Three additional 2.5-inch drives can be mounted, one behind the motherboard tray, one at the bottom and one under the ODD cage.
The chassis features two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and HD Audio connectors at the front I/O panel. The CM 690 III also comes with removable dust filters that cover the top, the front as well as the PSU for cleaning more easily. Video cards up to 423mm long can fit in the enclosure, as well as CPU coolers up to 171mm.
When it comes to cooling, the stock chassis comes with a massive 200mm fan at the front and a 120 mm fan at the back, and users can add in seven additional fans (two of them 200 mm), taking the total to nine (two on top, three at the front, two on the sides, one at the back and one on the HDD cage). The CM 690 III also supports two 240mm (2 x 120mm) liquid cooling radiators at the top and front which results in better overall airflow. Users can additionally install a 120mm radiator at the back.
This chassis is currently available in Asia, with a scheduled launch for the U.S. in the coming months.
