well i haven`t read all the posts, but if you have one on front, and one at back, put one to intake at the bottom, and the two exausters at the top of the case...That is ideal setup for best temps...

Yeah the stock fans are awful.

I kept the front fan because its blue, the rest i replaced within 10 minutes of finishing putting everything together.

Well. ya the stock fans are not that great. but you don't need anything to amazing to replace them with. I replaced most of mine with your average 120mm Antec Blue LED fans with 3 speed control. and they are all on medium. but the exhaust fan is a Silverstone FM121. with 167CFM. it's very loud. but the speed control I mounted in the case. and it's set at 65% and it's perfect.

So I have the front fan, the bottom fan. 2 top fans, and that one exhaust fan. I used to have a side panel fan. and with my Q6700 Oc'd to 3.4 GHz I'd get a temp on average of about 38-40C on idle.. Now I've removed my side panel fan. I'm getting a pretty stable temp at the same clock speed 3.4 GHz of 33-34C idle.. thats a good 5 or so C. and while overclocking. that 5 degrees is the difference between getting to hot during Prime or OCCT tests.. and passing. so it's actually pretty exiting to get that big of a drop. I'm happy about that.

thanks for the info Guys! but now my case is not as cool. I really, really wanna add a window. but I don't wanna buy the ghetto one they supply. any suggestions to the best, and easiest way to make a window...?

Hi guys - finally got to moding my CM-690.....

In this mod i plan to spray paint the whole inside of the case black, cut out the grills of the fan mounts, paint the parts under the grilling on the front and top red so that you can see a dark red through the mesh and add some bright red LED fans to replace the blue fans currently in the case, i would also like to purchase some red cold cathodes to finish off the effect created by the fans.

I have taken apart all the panels and removed the mesh from the top and front panels.
I have started to take the grills of the fan mounts out.

Some Questions:
1) Should take out the oval looking plastic mesh stuff to and how do i cut it? Tin Snips?
2) How do i mount the 2 fans at the top between the metal and the plastic?
3) How do i prepare the metal and the plastic for spray painting?
4) What shade of Red paint should i get so that through the metal mesh it looks to be blood red?
5) Any hints/tricks to help with the above?

Thanks

scottath

If you want too mount the fans between the metal and the top panel, you need to cut the plastic stuff out. Then depending on the thickness of the fans i think you need to make the metal mesh stuff sit higher (so that it becomes more inline/slightly higher than the plastic chrome strip stuff)

I just need to cut out the plastic "stuff" and redrill some holes further along (towards the front) to mount the fan further forwards to avoid it hitting the end of the top facia.....Dont i??????
