When looking at the CM 690, it’s easy to be taken in by its bold lines and superb styling. But don’t let its exterior fool you – the CM 690 is a lot more than just a pretty face. Its unique Cooler Master mesh design not only gives it its modern good looks, but also facilitates excellent thermal performance. Inside, users can install up to seven 120mm fans for high-efficiency ventilation, making the CM 690 perfectly suited for today’s high-powered hardware. A 80x15 mm fan can even be installed at the rear of the motherboard tray to keep the CPU area well cooled. Other innovations like the bottom-mounted power supply, top mounted ventilation holes and retaining holes for water cooling units makes the CM 690 the ideal choice for systems that require the utmost stability.
But being a mid-tower doesn’t mean that the CM 690 has to make sacrifices. Thanks to smart engineering, the CM 690 offers more space than ever thought possible in a mid-tower form factor. In fact, with its roomy interior, the CM 690 is the only mid-tower on the market that is able to accommodate NVIDIA® 8800 Graphics Cards in SLI configuration. Featuring a multitude of cooling options, the CM 690 still manages to keep system noise down to a minimum, thanks to features such as hard drive racks that feature anti-vibration pads and shock migration bars. And because users don’t want to be wrestling with their hardware, a tool-free design and smart cable management features make the CM 690 a joy to work with.
