    Cooler Master 690

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    At first glance, a computer case would seem like an inessential part of the computer as a whole. But this would fail to take into account some very crucial aspects of computer cases that help to maximize overall computer performance. This article will look at the 690 from Cooler Master, one of the top of the line case makers. Read on to see how this version will impact the case industry.


    The computer case is an interesting part of the computer. Its job has nothing to do with the performance of the computer and is pretty much the only part of the computer you see. This leads to the conclusion that it's all about looks, which isn't true. The looks are important, but the functionality and the airflow in the case are both vital parts to consider.

    My first case was from Raidmax and it looked cool. That was about where the positives ended for that case. It was a hell hole to work with and seemed to collect dust bunnies like no other.

    Today we get to take a look at the Cooler Master CM 690. Cooler Master is one of the better known companies in the computer case industry. They are in the PSU and cooling markets as well. Being in these other areas is a huge advantage to making a case. There are huge potential problems with cooling inside the case; Cooler Master knows this and have incorporated their knowledge of those industries into their cases. Time to take a look into and outside this case.

    What You Get

    The case comes in the product box shipped to you. No need to put it in your standard brown box. It does take away a little security as people that handle the package now know what is in the box. All in all, the package got to me in one piece and in perfect condition. Inside the case you get a big white box of stuff, nothing exciting, mostly just your normal case hardware stuff.
