    Cooler Master 690 - Installation


    (Page 4 of 4 )


    Installation

    Installing the hardware was very simple. I already discussed the optical and hard drives, but the rest went smoothly as well. The case doesn't have a removable motherboard tray, but it was still simple to install the motherboard.

    Moving the PSU to the bottom has its perks and disadvantages. It seems that there is more room in the case with it on the bottom, but it also makes that 4/8 pin connector harder to deal with. It's hard to find a way to hide it or reroute it anywhere. I have yet to find anything other than running it from the PSU straight to the connector.

    Conclusion

    This is a really nice case in design and functionality. I was very impressed with it. The looks are exactly what I wanted. It's a really nice looking case, but not overly elegant.

    Cases can't make your computer faster, but will keep away headaches with the right design. One could spend 10 minutes installing hardware, or an hour. It all depends on the design of the case.

    There aren't many downfalls for this case. The only one I can think of is I wish there was a little more room between the top of the case and the top of the motherboard. The positives of this case heavily outweigh that fault. 

    The design allows for great air flow in every direction while also keeping the dust outside the case. The tool free design is perfect and easy to use. The Cooler Master 690 is a mid tower case with what feels like a full sized interior with all the features you would expect from the best cases in the world. I would highly recommend this case for anyone running hot hardware who desires a stylish case with all the features you would want.
