Cooler Master officially introduced the NVIDIA editions of its HAF X and CM 690 II Advanced cases:
Cooler Master is pleased to announce collaboration with NVIDIA® delivering new and original limited editions of the Cooler Master HAF X and CM 690 II. The HAF X and CM 690 II each set a new standard for hardware support, functionality, and design. Through this relationship, Cooler Master and NVIDIA® have raised the bar even further.
NVIDIA® SLI Certification
Extensive cooperative efforts throughout this endeavor have resulted in the HAF X receiving NVIDIA® SLI Ready. In addition, the HAF X now holds NVIDIA®’s much coveted recommendation as a superior cooling chassis when installing up to three NVIDIA® GTX 480 graphics cards in SLI.
"These new limited edition cases represent the culmination of our collective efforts. Cooler Master and NVIDIA® engineers worked tirelessly to improve thermal designs in order to best cool NVIDIA® GTX 480 graphics cards in a triple-SLI setup”, said Bryant Nguyen, Product Marketing Manager at Cooler Master, as he conveyed his excitement. "We look forward to seeing enthusiasts push the limits of their graphics cards within our cases."
By featuring a fresh NVIDIA® stylized windowed side panel, bold color palette, and a NVIDIA® SLI certified VGA fan duct. The VGA duct includes a powerful Blade Master industrial fan to provide turbulent airflow directly to the components. These improvements add to the list of cutting edge attributes that the HAF X is currently known for. Some of these exciting features are USB 3.0, VGA retention bracket, 360mm liquid cooling support, huge 200mm+ fans, and SATA hot swap bays to name a few.
CM 690 II Advanced
The CM 690 II received a similar color palette that makes a strong statement within the confines of its cleaner aesthetic. It also received a custom windowed side panel with NVIDIA® claw logo detailing. Beyond this, the CM 690 II offers a modular hard drive bay, large graphics card and power supply support, and space for two 240mm liquid cooling radiators. These features are all contained in an award winning mid-tower chassis.
