[Coolermaster] New version of CM690II Advanced

http://www.coolermaster.com/product.php?product_id=6750

CM 690 II Advanced (USB 3.0 version) makes it possible to take advantage of excellent airflow and water cooling options to vastly reduce temperatures on system components. The CPU mounting hole size has also been enlarged to make installing CPU heatsink backplates even more convenient, and the rubber grommets have been redesigned for improved cable management. Additionally, the CM 690 II Advanced (USB 3.0 version) is equipped with two USB 3.0 internal connectors for faster data transfer. The spacious mid-tower will keep enthusiasts happy with room for up to 3 Dual Slot graphics cards, high-end CPU coolers, top or bottom mounted water cooling radiators and 1.8"/2.5" drive adapters for easy upgrades.

Summary:
  • Rubber grommets
  • Bigger backplate hole
  • More USB ports (Incl. 3.0)

The first two really make this case that much better, if its price doesn't budge.

i was supremely pissed when i discovered how the cpu backhole on the prev gen 690II was not large enough to cover all 4 cpu bracket holes. I don't understand why any manufacturer would make such an obvious design flaw. confused.gif

so to sum up,

Now this case is the way it should be.

as long as the price remains the same it will be a great buy. this was one of my top cases under $100, but the cpu mounting hole was too small. the corsair 400R really hurt the appeal of the cm690II. now coolermaster is matching up to that case a little better. if only you could install 4 dual slot gpu's.

Suddenly I want to dump my 600T on Craigslist.

Now are they running a USB 3.0 cable through the case to plug into the back of the I/O panel like other cases, or do they connect via a USB 3.0 header?

Have the 690 Adv II and it's really a fantastic case, this just makes it better.

Knowing Corsair quality 400R feels very cheap. 690 II looks and feels much better.
