Coolermaster RC-690 Advance II

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I Just bought one, changed all my stuff over and to be honest I am not that happy with it. Maybe I am just doing it wrong But the extra fans i got from it, i don't think have benififtted me too much, the Cable Management i found hard, and didn't work as well as I hoped (Given first time I have ever done it, all other cases never had it). Although it is a nice looking case, Bit big though

I dunno Just my rant, Is there a good way to set the fans up and do the cable Managment in this case?

Look at some of the images in the CM 690 thread here at OCN. There are a lot of of them showing the cable management and fan arrangements. But basically if you can achieve good cable management in a 692 Advanced you won't be able to do it in any other case either. All it takes is a little common sense and a 6th grade intellect.

The 690's are actually among the best cases for cable management. It does take a bit of creativity, but all cases will be that way. For your fans, the standard front to back setup works fine. You can throw in some top/bottom/side fans if you want, but they shouldn't be necessary if you're running the components in your sig.

To be honest, unless you get a Full tower, cable management isn't going to be perfect.

The CM Storm scout has ripper cable management even though it's quite compact.
