The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1458

post #14571 of 19729
Personally I would advise against the rounded sata cables, when you need to fit them in the ports right next to each other they often conflict in terms of the space available, especially when there are 3 ports close together. Most boards now have good positioning with the ports on the side stacked in two's but with my old board *link* it was a pain considering I had 4 hard drives and optical drive.

flat seem nicer to route anyway, they go down nice behind the metal joint in-between the cable management holes. And the length hasn't been a problem for me always used the ones i get with my MB, as long as they are black.

I originally bought this case last April and was enamored by it... Since then I have flipped between many cases and form factors but I always come back to it smile.gif I was about to pull the trigger on a new case, but I instead decided to replace the side-panel (w/window) I was using because it was beaten up a good bit.

I did remove the rear fan grill and line the edge with U-channel, aside from that it's in mostly stock condition.

Here's my current setup (I seem to be the only fan of my color scheme, and the pictures don't do it justice - I'll probably change it once Bitfenix releases their Spectre LED fans in the US)

Very nice build, man!
Clean and beautiful! applaud.gif

Also, I like the color scheme. I almost went for red (back) and blue (front and right side of the window) but ended up with my present UV and blue LEDs.
It's considerably easier to make a build look good with a monochromatic LED scheme but I am a big fan of any mix that doesn't looks like vegas wink.gif

Nice. Just the way I like them. I'm betting those grommets are from Corsair right?

For #1 - No one is getting any - lol! The same source to which was mentioned here and everywhere in this URL it seems (Corsair) gave me the last crumbs as it wasn't a complete kit (though I was looking to purchase them) for free about 3 or so months ago.

They do not have the size that will fit the large oval top one and where the PSU and other cables go through on the bottom - I had to do surgery to make it work.

For #2 - http://www.xoxide.com/sunbeam-rheosmart-6-fan-controller.html

Mind you that the tool-less doesn't do anything to secure this - one needs to use two screws 1 on each side and if you noticed on the last bay a black screw but comes in silver and I painted black it using nail polish a day before install.biggrin.gif One also needs to tighten those screws well without stripping the aluminum screw holes - that already happened on the other side which then I used a regular hard drive type screw which has the heavier threads.

Si - Si - Si

Yeah - Yeah - Yeah

biggrin.gif


I got the last crumbs (for free though I wanted to purchase them) and no one has been able to get any since.

EDIT: BTW except for the Hyper 212 + fans the rest are Yate Loons and I modded the front fan to work the native case LED ON/OFF switch and what a PITA that was as it's a small area to work with in the fan motor area.

I also did this to my HAF 912 with those 200mm megaflow fans and an added switch and installed in the smallest hole of the three in the rear which was meant for the liquid cooling. lol! But that was much easier by far.

Hey,

i would like to join the CM690 club.
My case is modded. I cutted out the middle of the HDDrack, removed the stock power switch, hdd led, power led and reset switch.
Now they are on top of my case, where the usb, sata, audio etc used to be. I filled it all up and sanded it. After that i painted it black/blue.
Drilled some holes and fitted led's and switches in.

Here are some pictures from my CM690 mod, called The Blue Bastard.
Ive got an Amd Phenom x4 9950 BE, 6gig ddr2 ram, 9600gt 1gb, and some other stuff.

Testing led

Finished

(just delete it if its 2 big or 2 much)

There are 9 extra fans, a 140mm fan in my psu, 2x80mm on my GPU and 90mm on my cpu. Its running cold enough biggrin.gif
got idle of 26 with all fans max, and 30 with 4 fans switched off, and the rest running as slow as possible without getting warnings from my zalman zm-mfc2.

Everything is stock speed, but i think i could overclock it a little... tongue.gif

grtz, Bassie

I know its quiet old post.. but was looking to do something similar esp filling up of the power and led slot at the side and put it on top..

What did you fill it with? Also is the power switch a momentary switch?
