Cooler Master's 690 III case continues the 690's legacy of great cooling and value. With each generation, Cooler Master has not only added features, but they've managed to polish up an already superbly polished product. It's well built so that even...

The stakes were high for Cooler Master. The CM 690 series has always been a popular and well-respected one, and Cooler Master could afford to drop the ball with the third version. The first two offered a perfect balance of price, features, effective...

Cooler Master have gone back to the drawing board, aiming to improve on one of their best ever and most popular chassis designs, adding a third part in the now Trilogy of CM 690 chassis. The 690 and of course the 690 II are fantastic cases, but they're...

The CM 690 III is showing a very familiar outside, but the inside has certainly been overhauled with some upgrades to improve the product and make it a little more suited for the demands of 2013, the USB 3.0 ports are especially appreciated of course....

It’s never an easy feat bringing to market the successor to a popular product and there are usually two avenues that manufacturers take; a complete overhaul and redesign or a subtle facelift. Today’s review of CM 690 III drops into the latter....

Cooler Master fait à nouveau fort et ne dérogera pas à la règle avec son 690 en version III, qui reste de ce fait une valeur sur. Au niveau du design le boitier reprend à peu près la même architecture que ses prédécesseurs, avec plein de nouveautés qui...

Eine Bewertung für das Cooler Master CM 690 III fällt sehr einfach. Der Hersteller pflegt und erweitert hervorragend seine Modellplatte und baut immer wieder neue Ideen ein. Das Äußere hat sich kaum verändert und ist CM690-typisch geblieben. Im Inneren...
