Review: The new king of the middle









CoolerMaster CM 690 Advanced comes in a nice black box with plenty of pics and info. The box isn't too large and can be carried with ease. The case weighs 9.56kg and our model is called RC-692-KKN2.

As you can see, the packaging has pictures and some flagship features of the case.

You'll find specs on the side of the box, as you can see on the picture below.

In order to safeguard the case during transport, CoolerMaster used Styrofoam and firmly secured the case within the box. In addition, the case is wrapped in plastic so the case will arrive at your doorstep in mint condition.

Image

With the case you'll get different screws, plastic zip ties, 3.5'' bracket, 5.25'' to 3.5'' bracket, four plastic pins (revit) for one fan, a small speaker for MB warnings (buzzer), VGA bracket, wire mesh grill for dust and the installation manual.

VGA bracket is a welcome addition for SLI and/or CrossFire owners in order to share some weight if you want to make sure that a heavy graphics setup won’t damage the motherboard. Naturally, this is not a must but will come in handy when transporting the entire rig. The graphics card bracket is fastened to the rear panel with two screws and will take many different graphics cards. An optional 80mm can also be used to provide your graphics with additional cooling.
