This review is from: COOLER MASTER RC-692-KKN2 CM690 II Black Steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
Pros: I've built a lot of computers in my business and this was one of the easiest cases to work with. I have reviewed this case for many months and it stays at the top of the list on certain Tech sites.
The three fans that come with it are quite and should keep the case cool for many. I had to get a new case for my 260GTX and 3 hard Drives that add extra heat and take up space.
I will not be upgrading for several years after completing this build.
Cons: Not a Con for me. Grounding problems? Try not using the Black Painted Screws. I keep bags of unpainted screws around for such projects.
Other Thoughts: What I have in this case:
MSI P6N Diamond 680i 30c - 38c load
Q6600 38c - 52c load
Titan TTC-NK35TZ/RPW (CPU Cooler) Does Excellent Job
Gigabyte 260GTX Super Clock
3 HDs at 1.750 Gs 28c - 38c
4 Gs Memory
Ubuntu/ Win7 Ultimate / XP Pro /
I have Xp setting the way I like and refuse to get rid of it.
Also I'll be keeping the Q6600 for a long time. I can't stress this rig with anything but stress test programs. I do PS, 3D art, record music, play serious games. It handles it all very well. Software needs to advance and utilize hardware resources before I upgrade whats considered "Outdated".
Pros: REVIEW this model. There is a difference between this and other models. It is made with high quality parts. Runs cool. It runs as good as a 275, give or take. Can be overclocked further. About the same price as other cheaply made 260's.
Use Riva tuner or at least Nivdia Control Panel to regulate it, not the trial version software it comes with.
11.5 inches. Make sure your case handles it. I have a Cooler Master 690 II Advanced and it had 1 inch left before it hit the hard drive casing.
Antec True Power TP3 650Wwatt works great for me.
Cons: Not a real Con. To bad NewEgg cannot keep this model in stock. Should be the only 260 model they sell.
Other Thoughts: Dismiss all negative reviews..... I read them and it has to be the user that is the problem. One, might be a lemon purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I was impressed by it. Bought it for my wife. Her cheapo quit on her. It's good for normal activity and light gaming. Defiantly worth the discounted price I purchased it for. Was expecting a much cheaper looking product.
Cons: None. If you believe your going to be KING of gaming with this your seriously mistaken and should not score it low.
It's a cheap mouse doing a great job being a reliable one.
