Are you sure? On the CM site I see it has a front 140mm 120mm fan. confused.gif

OK, thanks. smile.gif

Other opinions?

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 120mm 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. biggrin.gif

I have my original CM690 set up to front-to-back and bottom-to-top. That's the way Cooler Master recommends it and without the side fans, even the dust problem is solved. Don't know what I did wrong, but whenever I put the side fans back in, the inside of my case looks like it's growing fur. biggrin.gif

Intakte:
1x 140mm SilentWings Front
1x 140mm SilentWings Bottom

Exhaust:
2x 140mm SilentWings Top
1x 120mm SilentWings Rear

Scythe Mugen 2 with 120mm blowing to rear.

Best setup for me so far! Getting great temps with it!

Could need some better airflow around the gpu though... the TTP is blowing onto the card, isnt it? So would it be good to put a sidefan as intake to the case?

Good in case flow.

Hi,

Intake;)

Make sure you have the fans back and top exhausting to help the draw.

Front and side intake.
Top and rear exhaust.

Anyone have any ideas for mounting extra fans on the front face? I'm only using 1 DVD in my 5.25" was wondering if I could get another fan up in there.

I was just going to zip tie it in there, but wanted to see if anyone has done this or has a good idea/

Thanks

You can use zip ties to mount a 120mm fan into 3 of the 5.25" drive bays. That's the most common thing people do.
