Continued from Corsair Twin2X4096-6400C4DHX vs Kingston KHX6400D2LLK2/4G
A good chassis is a must have for overclocking system. Therefore, I selected Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) chassis as the one. It is a mid tower. I don’t need a full tower as I don’t have much stuff to put in there. Cooler Master CM 690 mid tower has enough space for me.
Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) chassis is priced at RM289 currently. For an overclocking system, this chassis is considered cheap. I selected it due to its air flow system. I like Cooler Master CM 690 (RC-690) chassis because you can install lot of fans inside the chassis. Basically, you can cool everything with this chassis.
