Would this fit in a CM690II?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I am thinking of this current set up, I have parts in mind, but no plan to purchase them too soon. (2 months or so)
I would just like to cement whether or not this would work (Specifically the rad at the top)



I tried to indicate as best I can the little area I plan on installing the pull fans for the top rad, but I don't think it will come across very well to anyone who doesn't have a 690II.

I know 2x 240 Rads is a little much for just a CPU, but I plan to add my GPU in later.

I will take a picture tomorrow and upload it to show you the gap I'm talking about..

It'll work, but it'll be cramped.

Push/pull on the top rad will be very tight, I don't think I could fit that in my CM690 II with my mobo due to ram. If you get creative you could probably make it work. Other than that I use a very similar setup and it works great!

Make sure your PSU is not too long and account for any modular PSU connectors.

Note the length of your PSU for your bottom rad.

The section between the case and the top panel can house two standard 120mmx25mm fans; no need to go thin for that. What you have is exactly my set-up save I have a 120mm thick rad at the bottom instead.

A bay res/pump would look good too. I have the Koolance 402x2.

I don't think you can fit a push pull on the top, but it will certainly depend on your motherboard. Any ram slots or heat sinks must be at least 25 mm from the top edge of the motherboard if you are using a swiftech mcr 220 or thicker. As you can see, I can't get a push pull on the top.

Edit: I just re-read your above post - you can fit regular 25 mm thick fans in that gap (I have gt-15s in there right now).
