Cooler Master CM 690 III - Mid Tower Computer Case with Seidon 120V Water Cooling System and Windowed Side Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Looks are deceiving, this Case is Huge! Outside, it looks like a Mid Tower, Open it up, You'd swear it's a Full Tower. Huge cutout behind CPU, for aftermarket HSF's, cutout for the 8 pin ATX,. More than enough room to Hide cables out of Sight, I even threw in a Gig GTX 760 with room for another. You can tell this Case was designed by someone who knows/has Built a PC. Airflow is great.

Cons: Tilted expansion slots raised my eyebrows, but eventhing slipped right in, nice & comfy, so it's no biggy.

Other Thoughts: What's with the Seidon WCS anyway? I'm using a CM N520, 4 fans and after running AS III Fan Xpert, temps are 29 idle & 42 @ load. Running OCCT @ Full load (100%) for 5 mins, temps never topped 62. Fan speeds dropped down to < than 600 rpm @ idle, I had to reset threshold to 400 so BIOS wouldn't shut me down. Running a ASUS Z87 Pro with i7 4771, that's not to bad. Puppy is as Clean & Cold as getting out of the shower, Brrrrrrrrrrr....

3 out of 5 eggs Kinda'..........Sorta' 03/31/2014

This review is from: ASUS Z87-PRO LGA 1150 Intel Z87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Nice Layout, WiFi works great.

Cons: 4 out of 6 usb's on the back panel won't work. Sucka' won't shut off. shut down sends it into "Sleep Mode", I think that has something to do with AS III.

Other Thoughts: Luckily there are enough PCI and usb headers on the board so I can add more usb ports. But with an ASUS board, I shouldn't have to.
