Hi Friends,

Just wanted to share an update. As a "pre-Christmas" gift to myself (I celebrated my birthday just last week), I went up a notch with my water-cooling for the Cooler Master 690II Advanced that I initially posted on this thread at post # 16053.

Upgrades made:

1. Went for a full GPU waterblock (EK) from a universal GPU waterblock (XSPC).
2. Purchased a backplate for the video card.
3. Added a RAM waterblock (EK, for Corsair Dominator). Practically speaking, water-cooling the RAM is not necessary but I just added it for the "bling" factor, lol.
4. Changed the tubes from black to white.

Here are some pics. Pardon me as I have taken those pics immediately after install and during leak-testing. Also I am using a regular point-and-shoot as I am not into photography.

Note: images have been resized to 640x480. If you want to view the images in full, you can visit my ImageShack album here. If you want to see my cable management, you can visit my initial post here.

The rest of the pics in my rig signature/profile. Hope you like it. smile.gif

Wiring is not as good as I'd like but still better than total mess.

Nice build, sir. smile.gif In my opinion, you will just need to sleeve your PSU and all your cables. It'll do a wonderfull job aesthetically, as well as improve your cable management a lot. smile.gif

This is the first time I have used the 690 II advanced case. I helped a buddy build the original 690 back in the day. Man these things have improved a lot. This build is not all top of the line, but it is a work computer. I did not have to pay for it, and got to use some nice parts to build myself a new computer for my new job. All in all I have to say that I am impressed with this case. I was even thinking about switching my gaming rig from my haf 932 to this case. Just wanting something a little smaller. I bought it all at microcenter the other day.

Hm, I don't know. But I do know that the 690II Advanced has a windowed-side panel version. Mine is. Also I believe there is a "CoolerMaster Store" in the US where you get to buy parts of the case (lucky for you guys). smile.gif

Nice build! smile.gif Yes they have improved...I didn't own a CoolerMaster case before, but looking at your pics I would say they have...mine didn't come with grommets, lol.

You might want to sleeve the cables for a cleaner look. wink.gif

Ya, I think the gromets look good. I would think about sleeving the cables but since it is a work computer I am not going to spend any of my own time and money to do it. Everything in my gaming rig is sleeved. 461
