Cooler Master CM 690 NVIDIA Edition Case

Benchmark Reviews
12 October 2008
  • Conclusion: The retail box for this case is certainly an attractive one. It gets your attention without being overdone. There is ample information on the back of it to convey its list of features. The NV 690 NVIDIA Edition is noticeable without people having a "holy crap, what is that?" reaction. It is different but still slightly subtle. Everyone that has seen it since I received it has had a positive reaction to it.
  • Pros: Decent stock cooling, Water cooling pass trough's included, Stylish look including the NVIDIA logo and side window, Removable hard drive racks for easy upgrades & maintenance, Space for up to six 120mm fans, SLI ready chassis
  • Cons: Front and top panels difficult to remove, A little cramped inside, The bezel and top could have a better mounting design, Poor port and button placement

  • Excerpt: Starting out in life as a manufacturer of cooling devices, Cooler Master has been around for over a decade. I can still recall seeing a lot of coolers with the company logo coming out as OEM coolers for many computer systems, but these folks have grown a bit since then. While thermal devices are still in their blood, they have expanded and are becoming well known for their power supplies and enclosures.

  • Conclusion: This is one nice mid-tower.  While the case has a ton going for it, it could be a little better.  There is no removable motherboard tray and the case is made of heavy steel.  Those are very small complaints when you look at the case as a whole.  A big plus for this case is it will fit 2 8800GTX's in SLI.  In the picture above, I have an 8800GTS installed and you can see all of the extra room available.
