personally, i would have it as an exhaust, pulling the warm air off the back of the CPU.

if it were an intake, it seems, it would trap too much hot air underneath the board.

I thought the front panel was very difficult the first time I was working with the case, too. It took me A LOT of force to get it off the first time. I thought I was going to snap the thing in half. But it's a very durable case. The picture is correct, I put my right hand underneath the front of the case and put my left hand on top the front of the case. Then I pull up with my right hand, gripping the bottom. Just be precise and put some oomph into it, and you should be fine

a member actually posted a Guide somewhere around here about where to place fans for best airflow/temps in a CM690. the jist of it is, side fans seem to increase temps, and your best placement is to have 120mm intake fans in the front and fill up the rear exhaust and top panel (exhaust)..i think. ill try and find the Guide, it isnt too shabby.

for the top mounting of the fans... what's the best method, having the fans inside the case or sandwiching them between the top of the case and the top panel?

you'll be able to fit larger fans if you put them inside, but if you sandwich them then i think you'll only fit an 80mm or two. i think.

I know you can't fit 140mm fans because I tried, but I think I saw a picture of 120mm fans being sandwiched.

You can use 120x20 fans in between the top plastic and case if thats what you mean.

On the top exhaust I have (2) 140mm medium spd yate loons that I just installed a few weeks ago. For me they work well as exhaust fans. My motto is do what works for you since everyone has different amount of components in their cases where the case temps will vary.
