The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1192

post #11911 of 19729
Owned the 690 II Advanced for about a month now and I'm loving it.







The last two images aren't exactly the best, but they'll do.

Oh yeah, the reason why that case is not used for my sig-rig is because I'm using it for my office/secondary F@H rig.

Here is a before and after.

Note I did more the original fan that was on the bottom to the top so there are two up there now. The blue one I stole from the front of the case. I think I will put it back after I buy a few more of the Magma fans. I really like those to red ones.

Also I am thinking about putting that second rad fan outside the case and put a shroud in the case so from inside the case it would go; fan, shroud, rad, case, fan. Not sure on that though.

As always tips/advice is always appreciated. Now that I have the cables set I need to learn to oc.

right now I am using the gigabyte Easy Tune set on the first setting.
If you mean that you no longer have a front fan, then you need to put it back. I think that the 2 main fans are the front intake and the rear exhaust. I think that any other fans in addition to that are just extra fans.

And again, you should not overclock until you get your system out of that deskhole. Try to trust me: I know from experience.

But if you do get your system out of that deskhole, then the only place where you should be doing overclocking is through the BIOS. Using software is only a good idea when the BIOS does not have any overclocking options. So uninstall EasyTune (try to trust me). But get your system out of that deskhole first.

I looked at your "My system" but it says it is stock, are you oc now?
My sig rig always reflects the most current state of my system, so that means it is currently not overclocked. The reason why is because ever since I upgraded from the 9800 GTX+ to the GTX 260, I haven't been able to get any overclock stable, so I have absolutely given up on it.

But as I said before: get your system out of that deskhole. The difference in system temperatures between having the system inside and out is about 10-20°C! If you don't believe me, then do as I said and do this:

Run the Small FFTs test for about 10 minutes while the system is in the deskhole. Then take your system out of the deskhole and run the test again for another 10 minutes - all the while monitoring temperatures; I guarantee you that you will see a very big difference.

I'm going to keep after you until you do it.

I apprciate any info...
No overclocking should be done until the system is permanently removed from that deskhole. I'm sorry, but if you love your system at all, then you'll find a new place for it where it can breathe. Yes, I know that both ends are open, but trust me! I am speaking from experience! My desk is the same way!

And by the way, the following is in response to your screenshot of Core Temp: I had my E8400 overclocked to 4.0 GHz using 1.352V on full load with an ambient temperature (meaning, I used a room thermometer placed near my system) of about 70°F. My full-load core temperature never exceeded 50°C with the Small FFTs test. Compare that to your screenshot: your CPU is at 100% stock, but yet the highest temperature was 63°C!! That's 13°C higher than my full-load core temperature, and yours isn't even overclocked! So again: please find a new permanent home for your system where it has PLENTY of room to breathe on all 5 sides (I'm including the top).
It's a computer!

my other cm690 runs fine in its desk hole....



the back is cut out around the back fan and pushed all the way back so the air blows out the back of the hole and so that the wires stick out behind it a bit but it doesn't have any temp issues

What other fans do you have other than the front intake and rear exhaust?

I'm asking because I just remembered that when I had my system in my desk hole, my side panel was an intake. So, I think that if I had turned it around to exhaust air, then I probably would have had "normal" temperatures.

So here's what I'm saying: even though I still want to stand by what I said in that big reply, I think that if you either don't use a side panel fan or have it exhausting air, then everything should be gravy!

Did you see that GPU water block hanging on the side of the PSU? I bought a 4890 water block. Unfortunately, I coudn't make my card work with that GPU water block. The GPU will not post at all with the block installed. Not sure if it needs to sense a fan or something, it is really frustrating.

Amd by the way, I also painted the stripes of antec 1000W with red. LOL
