I would imagine that pulling the air out from beneath the mobo would be more effective?

Nope, I didn't take any. I will take some shots (before and after) when my new GFX card comes in.

No because on the other side of the mobo most of the fans are exhaust, you'd be fighting all that negative pressure.

I am the proud owner of a CM 690 as well.
Here is what i have accomplished today.

I painted the mesh on the case, as well as the internal metal. Matte black and florescent orange for the mesh.

The computer in the case is my sig-rig

no before pictures, since you all know what the case looks like

When i put it all back together after drying, i did not spend much time on wire management, since i'm expecting a H50 sometime this week, so ill update then.

Fans are as followed:

Bottom - Intake - Yate Loon 140 Medium
HDD bay - Intake - Noctua NF-P12
Top - Exhaust - 2x Scythe 3Ks (will be Yate Loon 140 Medium when i switch to H50)
Rear - Exhaust - Yate Loon 120 Low blue LED (will be H50 w/ 3Ks)
Side - Intake - Spare NXZT fan (will be the blue led YLs)
I do also have a 80x15 HIPERflow transparent fan on backside of CPU

Future Mods i plan are adding a window to the side, and orientating 2x120mm fans as intake to GPU.

With the current setup and using the PhenomMSRtweaker, down to 1400MHz on the first two cores and 800MHz on the 3rd and 4th, can get down to 2 degrees above ambient. (currently 27C ambient and 31C CPU) The only problem is with load temps will rise to 56C, thus me wanting to get a better cooler. (planning to do dual 120 rads and res with H50 )

I have loved this case since i built the computer. So very versatile.

Fooxz, the paint job and fan grill mods look pretty sweet, but I have to say, your cable management completely ruined it for me...


So I hope when you update it with your H50, it better be nice and neat!

Sorry for double post, but having the 80mm fan on the back would be more beneficial to have it as exhaust.

One thing you do not want is dust behind there, so exhausting that stagnant air would be better.
