Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) Chassis Preview

The first sight on Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) Chassis. Wow… It is big. Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) Chassis is mid tower chassis. However, it is bigger than normal mid tower chassis. And heavier too. This is good for overclocker like me. And the version I have come with Transparent Acrylic Side Window Panel. In short, I like Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) Chassis.

  1. air ventilation is very important to a computer. when i troubleshoot on my company PC, realize that the way of my ex colleague, 3 big fan in 1 CPU exclude processor fan..

    front back and center also have fan…

  2. @Calvyn: Same as mine. Ops… I did not take front fan photo. 😛

    @Wing Loon: IO panel on front is Japan version. Or your is CM 590? Both of them do look alike. 😉

  3. Hmm… I don’t think that I can change the features and specifications of this Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) Chassis.

    What else should I put then? Please advise. Thanks. 🙂
