The Build

CoolerMaster CM 690 III Review

 

The Build 

The PSU slots in easily resting securely on the rubber topped dimples, with the multitude of cables passing easily through the large oval management hole.  Round the back things might look a mess but with the 27mm of space on tap, not to mention the 13 well distributed cable tie points we've every confidence of achieving a tidy job

The lack of rubber grommets does of course make for untidy looking management holes. Not so much of a problem when there's no case window, but a bit of an eyesore otherwise.

Things actually look tidier round the back than they do up front.  In all we used 9 of the supplied cable ties to achieve this minimal install.  There is however plenty of room back here for cable extensions and the like.

There is an optional window panel with no fan mount.

But whether this is just available in the US, time will tell.

eBuyer usually stock the panels as they are the only place in the UK I've found that stock them as they did with previous generations of the 690.

Sure about eBuyer?
Specialtech, OCUK and Scan, along with a fair few others stocked the CM690-II's windowed side panel, and did it for about £8.

I never saw eBuyer have them tbh, although I don't really use them anymore.Quote
