The carton offers rugged protection for the case and features high-gloss graphics of what's inside along with detailed specifications and a comprehensive overview of the extensive feature set. Like the original 690 II Advanced, the nVIDIA edition comes nestled between two Styrofoam blocks and wrapped in a protective plastic bag.
Included accessories consist of installation screws, motherboard stand-offs, 3.5-inch adapter brackets, cable ties, 5.25- to 3.5-inch mesh panel, plastic fan rivets, padlock loop, a piezo speaker, and the VGA retention bracket. Many of these accessories can be found in both the regular and Advanced versions of the 690 II, with the exception of the VGA retention bracket. The bracket helps reduce the amount of strain two or three large graphics cards can add to the motherboard, and is also included with the nVIDIA version. The manual isn't specific to the nV Edition case, and Cooler Master includes separate instruction sheets for the stand-off socket and VGA support bracket.
