Cooler Master 690 II Advanced White Edition Video Review

Introduction

The Cooler Master 690 has been a favourite with enthusiasts since it was first released many moons ago. Rather than hacking at the design like a bad Polish cosmetic surgeon the designers at Cooler Master felt that some subtle changes to enhance the original winning design would be a much better bet for 2010.

Talking of 2010 this year we have seen an explosion of fresh-faced White Chassis' appearing everywhere, White definitely has become the new Black. Not to be left out Cooler Master have released the 690 II Advanced White edition, everything in the case from the tool-less hard drive bays to the dust filter meshing comes in the angelic shade of White and just goes to show the level of thought and attention to detail that has been put into this design refresh.

It's just my own personal opinion, and I'm not really a case-person - but I know what's decent looking prior to modding, but in all honesty I find this case nasty.

Soon as it's nice'n'popular and falls to <£60, it'd semi justify it to people with a white fetish, even tho the whole mesh thing looks cheap to me.

Insides are like all their cases I've touched, nice. Just a shame about the looks, imo.Quote

I have this case in black, not sure if I like the white yet. The phantom looks great in white, but the mesh front of the 690 II doesn't look so hot in white IMO. Still an excellent case for price and layout though.Quote

I have to admit in the flesh I really like this, and for £80 Id honestly say this is awesome for those that like white but dont want a full tower. It also has better WC support than all the other white chassis available.Quote

It's only $80 here. I've seen it as cheap as $60 on sale. I paid about $100 when it first came out. Good pricing though either way. Do you know how thick of a radiator you can fit in the top?Quote

Talking white : Tom you said you would be using the phantom as your personal rig and would come with a review on that case.

Will it come this month and can you hint on how it is compared to this one Quote
