RC-692A-KKN5 Facebook Page

From the looks of it here, they removed the Dust filter under the PSU completely. smile.gif No worries about cleaning.

Bottom view - PSU

Top View - PSU

EDIT: from the facebook page, it's said the stock cost for one of these babies is $159 frown.gif hopefully it goes down by Christmas time.

In essence they DID NOT relocate the PSU dust filter - it's the same dust filter as the 690 II Advanced. Shame on you CM!!mad.gif

I don't understand (Although, not having any experience with the CM 690 II ensures that), what's so bad about the dust filters in the case?

It wouldn't be that hard to clean and possibly wash them. I can see a process like this only taking about 10 minutes.

When a Power Supply dust filter is located under the actual Power Supply inside the case and then one has to loosen the Power Supply Screws to clean that dust filter EACH TIME = then it is a big deal and bad deal that CM didn't relocate it to the bottom of the chassis under the Power Supply for easier access.

I have the 690 II Advanced and seems to me from a photo that that part of the chassis is still holding the Power Supply dust filter in the same irritating way the 690 II does. Even the one photo with the bottom of the outside chassis under the Power Supply shows no dust filter nor a way to hold one out of the box as this version should have.

I'll await the reviews but won't hold my breath to find that I think I'm quite correct.

Otherwise the top panel "is fun" as that dust filter is not removable at least on the 690 II unless one permanently removes it. The only half-way (not great dust filter) is the front panel one.

Frustrated at CM for missing the important details yet again - they keep on missing the "target".

EDIT: I'm won't be surprised to hear that those rubber wire routing grommets are kind of fragile as some people already complained with the Storm Trooper case.

The whole top looks different by layout. I suppose only people with technical skills can swap the new parts to older models.

you guys think the grommets will be available from the parts store? I want to buy a cm 690 II and I don't want to wait for the usb 3.0 but I do want the grommets. Rather buy the current one and then buy grommets from parts store

I would bet vital body parts on it. my vital body parts even.

Sounds good, might go ahead and purchase it plus the side window this week. I have zero USB 3.0 devices and I already know the dust filters on the cm storm scout aren't amazing and planned to get better ones if I got the new version regardless so spending +50 for grommets was dumb.


It fits a video card in the first and fourth pci slot correct? so there would be a slot of space in between the cards.

the CM690II can support TRI-Fire/sli. which slots the cards should be in is mobo dependant though.

My board uses x16 on slot 1 and 3, but the temperatures are simply too high in my current case. ( It doesn't fit on the 4th slot but the cm 690 it will)

I'll probably play around with it with the 690 and I'll have a fan on the side panel, just want to make sure I have enough room if I'm not comfortable with 1-2cm of clearance between cards. I've read the difference in performance is not noticeable.

I gave you some rep thanks for the help.
