The Cooler Master CM 690 III is the most recent version of one of the most popular mid-tower cases from Cooler Master. It comes with a 200 mm fan at the front panel, supports radiators up to 240 mm and up to ten 2.5” drives. Check it out!

We already tested two other models from the CM 690 series: the CM 690 II Advanced Black & White Edition, and the CM 690 II Advanced. Compared to the second generation case, the new model is a little taller and wider, but has a smaller depth.

The Cooler Master CM 690 III comes in two versions, one all in black, and one with green details. The black model has the option for the left panel with transparent window or with two openings for 120 mm fans. We tested the black and green model, which has a transparent window at the left panel, with no room for fans at it. Its part number is CMS-6930GWN1.
