I need some advice for cooling, I have the 690 II Lite version.

The cooler is the Arctic Freezer XTREME Rev.2, should I mount it so that it pushes air from front to back or from bottom to top?

I'm replacing the stock rear fan with the Arctic F12 Pro PWM, should I put it the rear (default place) or on the top? Consider the answer to the previous question.

How is the stock front 140mm fan (I'm mostly concerned about noise)? Should I keep it or replace with the Arctic F12 PWM (it's a 120mm fan)?

Which is the best postion for a single 3.5" HD? And for a 5.25" DVD burner? Consider airflow issues depending on the answers to the previous questions.

Bear in mind that the PSU will have the fan facing down (so it gets fresh air from outside). Please don't suggest me to buy other fans/coolers as I only have these ones. My video card is the ATI 5770, so it doesn't heat much.

If you have a 690 II lite the it only has a 120mm fan at the front of the case.

I have a 690 II lite too and I have one 140mm on the top back of the case sucking air out and one 120mm next to the GPU that sucks air in for the GPU and PSU. I should mention my PSU is pointed inside the case for cleaner air and to help extract air from the GPU too.

You can extract the bottom HDD trays and side walls to help increase air flow from the front fan. Then place your HDD on one of the remaining two HDD trays. I also have my DVD drive at the very top of the case.

Yeah it's possible. I removed the mesh from the top and front of my CM 690 II and am replacing it with single sheets of mesh with smaller holes. Can't stand the gaping big holes in the stock stuff!

Yes. and the case actually comes with one set of brackets to do just that.

If you plan to mount more than one you might want to consider a 4in3 bay adapter that will allow you to mount up to 4 3.5" hard drives in the space of 3 5.25" bays and hold a 120mm fan to cool the drives and help cool the interior of the case.
