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

Pros: +overall solid construction-strong, folded steel, plastic won't snap
+Plenty of room for fans, HDDs, SSDs, CPU coolers etc.
+Modular hard drive bays (completely take the top 5 out, use as 3.5 in, or convert to 5 2.5 in bays)
+quality dust filters on front and bottom that are easily removable
+HUGE space behind the motherboard tray for cables-made cable management a breeze
+HUGE side window-I'm a sucker for big windows, and this one looks really professional, yet a bit flashy too
+tray at the top is extremely convenient for sd cards, screws, and all the other little things I always loose, but no more!
+clean, professional aesthetic

+water cooler has good performance (Athlon X4 750K @4.1 GHz from 3.4 GHz stock, stays at ~60C under load)
+water cooler looks really cool (In my opinion) with a blue led and silver trim

Cons: -NO rubber grommets. I thought this was an industry standard by now. Adding grommets would make the case perfect for me.

-water cooler began to make a rattling noise about 2 weeks after I installed it(kinds sounds like a fan with something stuck in it). The noise is really annoying so I'll try to RMA it.

Other Thoughts: I completely stand behind this case and recommend this to everyone: it's all-around built well and I can tell my friends at Cooler Master put a lot of thought into it. Props to that. However, the Siedon water cooler has some quality issues (not only me). I'd suggest to get just the case; the water cooler is a gamble.
