The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 108

post #1071 of 19371
Well, here's Franken Case. I guess you could say she has been modded some. No whinning about the looks of the rad or the outside fans as I will be making a performance shroud that will completely close in the top. I also plan to get some antech cool spots to cool the Mosfets, top outside fan is doing that. Not sure about how to get air to the video cards yet.

First thing I did was to create a wind tunnel under the 5 1/4 bays. It works really well at directing a ton of air into the case. No comments on the Gateway DVD player, it works and I'm cheap.



I may put a splitter back here to direct air to the video cards.



Before water cooling I removed all of the holes up top for better airflow. I also removed all the plastic line pieces on the top, again for better airflow.



I made a cut on the backside of the mobo tray to allow for easier wiring routing.



Decided to go with water as I just could not cool the chip in this thing down and overclock at all. That's not a knock against the case, opening the side panel and stuffing a fan against the computer didn't help either. It's just a volt hog. Also, wiring is not to bad. Not happy with all the wiring in the hard drive cage area but for now it's okay.



Here's where I sat the rad for now. It will stay up top, but I am going to make a performance shroud to completely enclose it and provide better pull for the fans, as 1" just isn't enough space.



Those holes I cut befiore watercooling came in handy here.



Due to space limitations, the resivoir and pump, I have currently mounted two fans on the outside of the case. Upper is for the mosfets lower is for the SLI cards. Ran the wiring through holes beneath the fans.



Here she is all closed up and looking freakish!

If not try without it and check your temps if they are ok then leave it off if you like. Good luck with the rest of your build and welcome to the club!

if i do overclock it will be minimal at best ... i have the fan on now ... on the bottom blowing upwards twards the top fans ...

but the comp is DOA at the moment .. bad PSU that i have to rma already

Howdy people

After looking through the modded 690s in this thread I decided to give the ol' window mod a shot.

This if my first mod, thought it came out alright. No power tools used just a nibbling tool

Finished pics:

axle seems to like the warm air around the case


Closer shot


The nibbling tool. Leaves a nice clean cut, although it took a while.

I want to make a side window for my case but leave the 2 fans on the side, I know this will greatly limit the size of the window as I want to keep it between the fans and the supports for the media bays & HD bays. It would just be a small window that will give a little view inside but maintain the fans on the side.

I was considering getting the plexi and using the strong 3M two sided tape and maybe putting a couple screws through it for looks if I can find some cool looking hex head ones or something.
