Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced Chassis Review

Installing a power supply is straightforward, requiring four screws to hold it in place.

There is plenty of space around the outside of the motherboard, although the space above the Antec Kuhler 920 is a bit limiting. This is the only place where the Antec 920 fits, as there is not enough physical room above the motherboard.

Installing an SSD is straightforward. Above, an OCZ Vertex 2 60GB SSD screwed into the 3.5 inch tray.

Installing 3.5″ drives is simple although it was a little fiddly as it involved twisting the bracket around the hard drive so each pin in turn pushed into the normal hard drive holes. Not the best solution we’ve seen for mounting 3.5″ drives.

The drives then slide into the relevant slot and just clip in place using the front of the tray as a lever.

The installation was painfree although we did experience a few issues with the 3.5″ Hard Drive mounting system. It is easy to end up with the pins protruding too far and catching on the inside of the 3.5″ bays.
