COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great case, one flaw. 12/19/2009

This review is from: COOLER MASTER RC-690-KKN1-GP Black SECC/ ABS ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very nice looking case. Included fans are very quiet. Many places for disc drives, and hard drives. Powersupply is mounted on bottom, and blows the hot air from itself out of the case. Front fan blows cool air over the hard drive area, keeping it cool. Includes E-sata, two USB, a 1934 connection, and audio out\microphone connections on top. Nice construction and sturdy too!

Cons: USB connector broke on top. Not a big con as I can live with it, but I am contacting coolermaster about it. The black tab protecting the contacts inside the connection came off when I unplugged my microphone.
Standard 80mm fan doesn't fit where advertised, which is still not a big deal.
Tool-less for expansion card slots are a little too loose for my liking, but these can be removed.
Buttons seem a little cheap, but have not failed.

Other Thoughts: The USB problem was probably my fault for pulling too hard, but then again, it shouldn't do that. Hopefully customer service will be good. I would absolutely buy another case from coolermaster again.

Pros: Great overall processor. Picked this up on a combo with an A7gm-s 2.0 motherboard for about Two hundred and thirty United States Dollars. Is fast, and great.

Cons: Needed a bios update to work with my motherboard (A7gm-s 2.0) Was not a biggie though, as Foxconn supplies an in-windows flasher.
