The CM 690 III is the newest revision to Cooler Master’s established series of mid-tower enclosures and aims to be “an icon redefined.”
Cooler Master has launched the latest revision to its range of CM 690 mid-tower enclosures with the CM 690 III (CMS-693-KKN1/KWN1) that aims to retain the distinctive curved metal exterior while offering a completely updated and improved interior. The CM 690 III supports a maximum of ATX-sized motherboards, 7 + 1 expansion slots, and adjustable tool free cages in which up to three 5.25-inch and seven 3.5-inch / 2.5-inch drives can be mounted.
The enclosure also offers provisions to mount an additional three 2.5-inch drives (one under the ODD cage, one behind the motherboard tray, and one at the bottom) and features two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports and HD Audio connectors on the front I/O panel.
With regards to cooling, the chassis can house CPU coolers of up to 171 mm in height, two 240 mm liquid cooling radiators, and up to nine cooling fans (maximum of two on top, three on front, two on side, one rear, one on HDD cage) including three optional 200 mm fans for “ultimate airflow.”
The Cooler Master CM 690 III will be on sale in August in one color, “Midnight Black,” at a currently undetermined price.
