The Cooler Master RC-690-KKN1-GP is designed to keep your system cool, no matter how hard you work it. The top and front are made of a metal mesh to facilitate airflow. Three 120mm fans are installed at the factory, in the front, rear and side. There is room for four more, two on the top, and one each on the bottom and side. You can also add an 80mm fan to the back of the motherboard tray to cool the CPU from both sides.

Each of the five external bays has the same mesh cover and the 5.25" to 3.5" adapter is also. All of the bays have a tool-less design for easy installation. The removable hard drive racks are also tool-less and come with anti-vibration pads for decreased noise. Each of the expansion slots has its own lockdown lever to eliminate screws. Cable routing clips minimize clutter and increase airflow.

To keep the case’s design lines pure the two USB, one FireWire, one eSATA and two audio ports have been put on the top of the case. This also makes them easier to access if the case is beside your desk. The power and reset buttons have been mounted on the side of the front bezel for the same reason.

1 out of 5 eggsGood While It Lasted

Pros: First build was very nice and easy thinking this was a great buy.

Cons: After a few years, the plastic pieces became exceedingly brittle to the touch - braking easily. This rendered the hard drive bays useless and the quick latches for the dvd drives short lived.

Other Thoughts: Only replaced parts in this once or twice, so very disjointed with the that the product did not last the test of time. If it would have lasted, the ease and convenience of the case would have made it a real winner.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case!

Pros: I bought this back in 2009 and no issues whatsoever. It is solid and very dependable. The amount of internal drives you can add is amazing. Overall I am very happy with the case.

Cons: Not must accept where to get more drive trays?? I only have 2. The power button is flaky at times, but not an issue. Too bad they dont make them anymore.

Other Thoughts: None that I can think of.

4 out of 5 eggsLots of Room – Easy Install

Pros: Case is Solid, sleek, simple design.
Lost of Room, tool-less features makes for quick flawless install.

Cons: After about a Year of normal use, the Power Button on the Case failed. If it wasn't for a Fail-Switch on my mother board, I probably would've spent countless hours and $$$ trying to find the problem (First guess is typically the MoBo or HDD/SDD).

Other Thoughts: Price was $84.99 back in 2010 (When purchased)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to access, keeps things cool, looks sweet, and just makes things easy. Power button and reset button on case with blue and red indicator lights look good and are well placed. The included fans run silent and the inside of the case is very well organized with extra screws to assist you installing hardware. Overall, this is a really amazing case that I plan to keep using until it really isn't feasible.

Cons: It gets a little dustier than I'd like inside the case. I've cleaned the thing out a few times, but it just grabs dust and those fans and opening get filthy. Main concern with this is the graphics card I had initially got it's fan cake with dust as has the CPU fan and heat sink. If it was a little cleaner running, I'd have no complaints at all and this would get 5 eggs hands down.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic case. Just take precaution to prevent the dust.

5 out of 5 eggsThe right case

Pros: I have owened this case for about 7 years and It still works as it should. All the fans that came with the cas still work and it still keeps my PC cool. I have put together 2 gaming PC's using this same case over the 7 years I have had this case. I'm looking to do a 3rd gaming build and I'm thinking about getting another case but I don't think I can bring my self to get rid of this case.

Cons: the LED on the front fan is no longer as bright as is used to be but I really don't care about that. I mean come on it is almost 7 years old and that's the only thing I have that is somewhat, remotely, kind of, maybe bad.

5 out of 5 eggsOff The Chain Case

Pros: case has all the features I wanted and then some.
1) 5-5.25" bays. This allows me to install a 4 bay 3.5" SATA back plane. This takes up 3 bays. A BD/DVD/CD burner. takes up a bay. and a floppy or other 3.5" device, like the 3.5" USB 3.0 kits a lot of the mobo manufacturers are shipping with their mobos now. Takes up the last bay.
2) Tool less design.
3) Power supply in the bottom
4) Lots of opportunities for fans. 5-140mm fans and 2- 120mm fans!
5) Lots of internal 3.5" bays. Each of the internal 3.5" bays has a special tray that can be removed. You then install the hard drive in the tray and slide the tray back into the slot.
6) You can store all of the screws inside the case by screwing them into threaded holes located on the 5.25" bays. Also very nice!

Cons: None What So Ever

Other Thoughts: This is my favorite case of all time. I wish I could still buy this case. Cooler Master has manufacturer an updated version of this case, the COOLER MASTER RC-692A-KKN5 Black Steel body / Plastic + Mesh bezel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case which is close to the original. I really didn't see anyway to make this case better..but i was mistaken.

4 out of 5 eggsGIANT

Pros: Lots of room. A small family could live inside this thing.
Easy tool-less install for motherboard

Cons: Weighs a ton. This is NOT a LAN Party rig by any means.
Does not handle dust well.
Side panels are not easy to slide back on the unit.
Side fan panel is cumbersome.
Power button LED was way too bright.

Other Thoughts: I have learned my lesson and will definately pay closer attention to case dimensions, and weight in the future. While this is a great enthusiast case, it was way more than I needed, and made traveling to LAN parties with my PC a nightmare.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Sturdy Case

Pros: Great quality construction, thick steel that isnt flimsy. Lots of fan mounting options, good placement of front inputs/outputs. Nice and spaceous. The tool-less features are nice and work well unlike a lot of other cased ive used.

Cons: It seems over time that my case door has irreparably warped and ive still yet to figure out the reason. A few small rust spots of which i cant figure out the cause, maybe its the humidity. Cable management is a little tough going. The power and reset buttons feel a little cheap and im not a fan of the shine, minor gripe there.

Other Thoughts: Included fans were quiet but did not push much air, nothing bad really and no reason to knock of any points. Accidentally knocked a glass of water off my desk and it poured down into the top exhaust ports, fried a few of my components. Not going to list that under cons because it was my own stupid fault, just something to look out for.

All in all a great case for the money, its built like a tank.
