I'm no telling you you have to mod it. Just advising on some fans. I spent months on mine maily due to the time to save for hardware and the mod itself is costly and time consuming. A test of skill and patience. AARRRRRRGHH!

I did it mainly because it is a hobby. I am a tradesmen and was always building stuff as a kid.

Im only advising on how to set ya fans up for a cool result. I definitely recommend a slim coolermaster 80mm at the back of the cpu if you are doing video processing. Even if it is GPU Cuda based.

I know the power board is a bit flasy, but it is definitely practical in reducing cable clutter and reducing fan speeds. They don't sell plain ones though

I used Xigmatek 120 mm fans all round. If I had my time over I probably would have put 140's as the top fans.

The stock fans are OK sure they are not big budget or quietest, but they are no box of bees either.

ahhh - ok - thanks for clarifying all that.

I would prefer not to have to mod the case, at least not right now.

I can't see this being a big heat producing machine, for a while, I was leaning towards the GTX 470, and do to its high power consumption, and heat generation, I would've had to rethink my build and cooling. Beside the GTS 250 is plenty for me, for now.

I just want proper air flow, with 10% - 20% intake vs exhaust to keep things nice cool, and would like to keep this as simple as possible.

I'll definitely get the 80mm fan for the CPU.

With your set up suggestion:

1 x140 intake floor (get a good mesh filter for it)
1x 140 intake front
1x120 exhaust rear

1x140 exhaust top rear mounted out side chasis
1x140 intake top front mounted inside chasis

I have them that way to prevent the top front intake sucking in the hot to rear exhaust air.
I really like your mod idea, but I don't think I have time for it right now, how can I get away with having the fans inside the case, while having a nice and proper air flow?

I'd love to have something like this:
YouTube- Fortress FT01 PC case with positive air pressure part 2
With ALL fans inside the case.

Any other advice is welcomed.

The top rear fan can be on top of the case but still in the mesh/plastic bezel

Yeh Im trying to tell him you DONT have to mod the case to do the fans that way. Lust lift of the top bezel, install fan on top, put back on bezel.

Go figure.

You have to take of the top bezel to screw in the inside top front fan anyway.

it depends on what 690 you have, the version I or II

the 690 I u can JUST fit 2 120mm fan's under the top cover but u have to play with the mesh height and cut the honeycomb stuff out but i don't know about 140mm fan's

the 690 II you can fit ether 120mm 0r 140mm without a hassle thayt go straight in

I've got the 690 II Advanced.

So basically, 1 x 140mm on top of the case ( Exhaust )
then 1 x 140 mm inside top Intake

1 x140mm intake floor (get a good mesh filter for it)
1x 140mm intake front
1x 120mm exhaust rear
1 x 80mm CPU fan intake
PSU facing down ( Exhaust )

Total = 3 x 140mm intakes + 1 x 80mm intake
1 x 140mm top exhaust
1 x 120mm rear exhaust
PSU exhaust

I actually like the idea of this air flow, seems way more balanced.

Is it better than this set up?

2 top exhaust fans ( 120mm )
1 rear fan 120mm
1 front intake ( 140mm )
1 bottom intake ( 140mm )
PSU facing down
and MAYBE another 120mm front intake?

Thanks a LOT for the feedback, this is my 1st build in 7 years, and back then, we didn't have to do any fan placements - 'cuz quite frankly it didn't matter - lol

i use a CM690 now and building a CM690 II Adv.
this is what i am doing.
2 140MM's on top for exhaust.
1 120MM on rear for exhaust.
1 140MM in Front for Intake.
2 120MM's on bottom for Intake. (or 1 140MM on bottom...2 140MM's won't fit)
2 120MM's on Cooler for Push/Pull
1 80MM x 15MM on back side panel for Intake

was going to use fan's on the side panel too, but opted to get the clear panel instead and run with no fan's on it since i will be using a Megahalems

all running on 3 pin fan extension cables and 3 pin Y-Splitter cables to Lamptron FC-6.

almost all together, need to sleeve the front header cables.... my god are they nasty looking.

Nice - I had something similar in mind.

That top 2 fans as intake and exhaust is interesting.

Which fans are you going with - and is low noise important to you?

you're suppose to use the top 2 to exhaust since hot air rises, you dont want to be pulling hot air from the top

well all the 140MM's are Med Speed Yate Loon. All the 120MM's are High Speed Yate Loon.
the 80MM is a hyper blue led.

the top i wanted as exhaust since heat rises. i originally thought i could do a dual 140MM on the bottom but that isn't the case, dual 120's is fine. so since the Med Speed Yate Loon's move a good amount of air and are pretty quite i went that route.

noise, i am not worried about noise, right now i have an Ultra Kaze 120mm x 38mm 3000rpm fan on my True and it's really loud, but my Q9550 stays cool, and that's the main thing since i push it kinda hard.
