Cooler Master Redesigns the CM690 II Case, Adds USB 3.0 Support

Cooler Master has just announced that it will soon out a redesigned version of its popular CM690 II case that now comes with a series of new features as well as with USB 3.0 support for connecting high speed storage devices.

The case will be available in two versions, called the CM690 II Plus and the CM690 II Advanced, but both of these will share a similar set of features and are just as roomy.

In fact, according to Cooler Master, the cases can house without any problems AMD’s Radeon HD 6990 graphics card, while they also come with enough space for mounting a pair of 120x240mm radiators, one at the top and one at the bottom of the case.

Additionally, users can also install up to 6 internal storage devices, either 2.5-inch or 3.5-inch, and four external 5.25-inch drive bays that can be used for adding various optical drives or fan controllers.

All these feature tool-free installation, while the CM 690 II Advanced also includes an external SATA dock.

Utilizing the user feedback received from the initial CM690 II, Cooler Master’s engineers improved the design of the case by increasing the CPU mounting hole size to accommodate larger fans, and also added a series of rubber grommets to the cable routing holes placed along the motherboard’s tray.

Compare to the previous versions of the chassis, the two new CM690 II cases will get USB 3.0 connectivity, the Plus model coming with one such port, while the Advanced version packs two USB 3.0 connectors.

Cooling wise, users can install up to 10 fans, with enlarged mesh design for better ventilation, and the case also comes pre-fitted with a series of water cooling holes for an external radiator.

The improved CM 690 II Advanced model will be available for €99.94 ($134 US). Time of availability will vary based on region.
