After the success of the original Cooler Master CM 690 II it is no great surprise that they have released a new and improved version. The reason for the success of the 690 II is that Cooler Master were able to fit full tower features into a mid tower chassis while maintaining a reasonable price point. They now claim to have raised the bar even higher, improving the colour of the interior, increasing the capacity, creating a superior cooling system and making the case more user-friendly.
The Cooler Master 690 II Advanced USB 3.0 version incorporates an external HDD Dock, as well as a 1.8″/2.5″ cage for the hard drives and a graphics card retention bracket for those of you who are luckily enough to have up to three discrete solutions.
The improvements to the cooling system are fairly extensive, you can now fit up to 10 fans as well as two locations to fit large radiators. On top of this there is more steel mesh, and lots of dust-filters to protect the fans and other components.
