The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1351

post #13501 of 19729
I would like some better air flow coming in the front of the case.
some good fans on the top help a lot too (as exhaust)
the stock fans move the air, but only regulated and not a jet the way i like it (without the sound though )

I don't have this rig anymore, but I'd thought I show it off. I was pretty proud of this build. I called her Maximus.

^^ very nice build, why did you get rid of it, to get the rig in your specs?

Civix - Got a picture of how you routed the front panel connectors with the maximus? I'm having a little problem with this right.

Well, I got Blue Crazer into her new home....Refurb CM 690II Basic $50 from CM Store...was only able to add 120mm fans to top(2) and one to the side due to a few issues. See Below:

1) PSU is too long to enable fan placement along the bottom, unless HDD cage is removed (maybe when I get down to 2 HDD's I'll be able to do this.

2) Xigmatek Dark Knight is too tall to allow side fan to be mounted in the upper slot. Maybe when I finally make the switch to liquid, I'll put another in there.

In other words, I've got as many 120mm fans in place as possible, at this point.

I did change out stock fans for the CM R4's and I can already tell a difference in idle temps, about 3ºC lower. Not too shabby I suppose. Also, this is alot more quiet because I can actually turn 4 of the fans down with my Sunbeam Fan Controller.

I'll post pics when I get a chance...should be a little later tonight.

It will be ALOT of pictures

Edit: Well it's a little later and I'm uploading


Box got a little banged up in shipping (thanks UPS


Looks like everything was OK though






Goodies that were included with the Refurb case


The rear fan wasn't anywhere to be found...luckily, I had one left over from my kids Centurion 5 case I bought awhile back. Got it in so we're all good now.


Took her all apart so I could get to everything without issue!


And the Re-Build Begins Gotta Love that shiny X3 1000W










Naked on the backside




Backside gettin alot of wire ties. Love the places build in to put wireties, CM really did their homework with this one!


Frontside, not lookin too shabby, but could still use a little more TLC with the wire management.


What a MESS!!!


Cleaned up a little bit Need more! I'm freakin tired, it's 2am already!


All back together nicely and running quiet

interjection: would having the top fan closest to the RAM be more of a benefit as an intake or an exhaust? Intake it would blow air down onto the RAM and into the CPU fan; exhaust it would suck out some of the air that the CPU fan could take would it not?

Well, kind of. I wasn't too happy with the asus maximus formula iii. So I sold most of the system and started all over again. LOL.

Exhaust is going to be the best option here. Simply because the heat, inside the case, rises to the top. As an exhaust, you will not only be pulling hot/warm air out, its also going to be pulling cool air from the bottom, over your Ram and into your CPU cooler
