Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced Black and White review

When we look at the bottom we see white rubber feet to prevent resonating and vibration, a nice large mesh for PSU ventilation and to the right two spots for 120mm fans or again a dual 120mm rad, conveniently covered with a removable dust filter. The PSU mesh also has a separate dust filter you can optionally install, let me show you these accessories.
Here we see the accessories included in the box, you'll receive screws, motherboard stand-offs, a 3.5" bracket, cable ties, a 5.25" to 3.5" mesh dust filter panel for the PSU, plastic rivets, and a mobo buzzer.
Right, it's time to look at the innards. After removing the side panel we again can't help it but are are immediately impressed by the completely black coating, our eyes get lured directly to the six 3.5" removable trays for your HDDs, we spot improved grommet holes for cable / wiring management, which is nice.
Quite different from the original CM 690 alright. There's also plenty of space to work in, but not unimportant, it's large and spacious enough to fit bulky components in. Good to know is that VGA cards can have a length of 304mm and the CPU cooler height can be a maximum of 177mm.
We test and review the Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige, a 240mm Liquid cooler that is performing nicely in a LCS kit that can actually be upgraded. Can it keep up with similar Asetek based products and their own Seidon series ? Let's find out!
Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced review
We review the new Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced edition (Ghost White edition) chassis. And if you think it looks familiar, well it's because it is. The product we'll review today is the CM Storm Scout 2 aimed at you guys, the gamers. The product however has for 98% the DNA of the CM Storm Scout, just a little smaller hence why you probably recognize it.

Armed with rugged looks and a lot of features this might be a very interesting chassis to purchase. Have a peek at our full-blown review.
