The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1388

post #13871 of 19729
Anyone have any tips on stealthing a DVD drive on a 690II? It appears that the DVD drive must be pushed back into the case some since the front panel is flat. Is there a good method for keeping the DVD drive in place once it is pushed back into the case? The locking mechanism only works in one location, which won't allow the drive to be stealthed. Thanks for any suggestions!

Just leave the drive in the standard position, and then take the blanker and just use some side cutters to cut away the edges of the blanker, then just stick it down with some foam tape to the tray, works a charm and looks great.

Won't the mesh on the dvdrom stick out farther in comparison to the rest of the front mesh since the front of the dvd drive is even with the rest of the mesh? Do you by chance have a picture of this mod done on your case? Thanks for the help.

YaGit™'s 690...one of my favorites in this thread!

I took a drill and dremel to my 690 tonight to improve the cable management. Hope it comes out OK. Cutting steel is harder than I thought it would be.

The trick is to take it slow and easy. Don't force things as that only dulls the drill bits and wears out the cutting disks faster. It doesn't make them drill or cut appreciably faster.

Yea I noticed that. My dremel disc didn't last very long, going to take it easier with the next one. I'm learning as I go, hoping to not screw up my 690 too badly. I'll throw up some pics when I'm done.
