Sorry

pretty lame of cooler master to do that, of coure the top panel for the usb 3.0 is completely the same.. they probably changed the holes to match one of the cases they already had so they didn't have to make more parts..

i think the USB 3 version is more of a facelift... not really intended to be a new case, like the 692 was, when compared to the original; new designs are expensive and people dond want expensive; this is one of the better priced cases on the market;
and i have to say i was impressed when i saw it, all the small improvements they made make a lot of sense; i have the 692 advanced version and i wish i had the usb 3 one, i could really use all three of the modifications they made; that being said, it would have been nice of cooler master to make at least the grommets available for older versions, now that pretty much all decent cases have them, mine looks a bit cheap without them, all of the sudden
post #18164 of 19729
What I was trying to say is cooler master tries to make a lot of its parts for as many cases as possible, the same drive bay locks, the same hard drive mount, ssd mounts etc. I have a feeling one of there newer cases had grommets, and instead of making new grommets they just changed the motherboard tray cutouts to match the grommets of that case. If you notice on there parts store a lot of the parts fit a lot of the cases.

Not to mention the top panel for the usb 3.0 version is identical to the older version in a way that it simply mounts the same way. It personally looks to me like they encourage people to up the case to the newest version but they didn't grommets. frown.gif

I have a cm 690 II that I had as a spare case, I was toying with the idea of buying the new top panel, new side panels and modding it all out but withotu grommets its like meh.

yes i agree, but thats not so bad when u think about it... they save some cash on the design and so we buy cheaper cases;
also if i owned two differen cooler master cases, i wouldnt mind being able to interchange things like side pannels, grommets , etc, at all
post #18166 of 19729
I kept wanting to post in this thread but I forgot to take decent pics of my case; then once I took them I forgot to upload them! Here's my 690II Advanced, add me to the ranks. thumb.gif





It's a pretty simple design and loop, but it's low cost, easy to maintain, and, most importantly, silent. I only have four fans in the system + the Seasonic PSU which is off much of the time. The pump is nested on a sling of rubber bands; while not very elegant it works like a charm and keeps it cool and quiet. The only mod I did to the case was reroute the switch on the top left to turn the LEDs on my Raystorm on/off.

I am really new to this forum (first post) and I want to join this club. Do I simply upload a pic of my CM 690?

Also, I wonder if it's possible to install a NZXT x60 in the CM 690 v1?
