Cool setup ManOnFire but I am curious what your hard disk temps are like? With them hanging like that are they stable enough to move your pc around?

I have had my original 690 for something like 2 years so I figured it was about time I checked in here.

What do you all think?

Here it is at my desk, printer is below my side desk


Window that I did about a year ago


Inside


Also cut black cardboard to block light from coming out the drive bays and ditched the cheesy CollerMaster emblem

Well spotted, I go for silence in my rig so my drives are suspended....Yes they are perfectly sturdy (though I don't move my rig often).

Temps are around 40 degrees...Higher than i'd like but I think i'll be removing the sound dampening around it soon as it makes very little difference.

That's cool, my hard disk is the loudest thing when my computer boots so I can see why you would do that.

Have you tried rotating them 90 degrees/quarter turn? That way your intake fan will hit the HDs instead of the foam.

Nothing wrong with 40C hard drive temps. In fact, that puts them just above the middle of the optimum range. According to Google's whitepaper, drives perform best and last the longest between 30-45C. 25-50C isn't terrible, but not ideal. Around 20C and 55C, failure rates start shooting up.

Try to avoid running at temps below 20C or above 55C for long.

and today while browsing this thread I come across it! badass coincidense.

How is it working out for you? With that 120mm rad I bet you get pretty awesome temps. Sadly I was never able to test it out on my own before I sold it to you so I am pretty curious how everything is performing. I bet it could keep a 1090T at 4ghz under 50c

Also your setup looks awesome! I am really diggin' the UV lights and the side window.

hahaha that is a funny coincidence

Yea this setup really surprised me, does kick ass work
After stressing with linx ALL day my dual core hardly goes over 30C with 1.5V
It was also cooling a 9800gt for a while no problem
I want to throw in quad core so bad

Yea so thanks for the deal you sexybastard lol

My first rig evar The CM 690 is the best case for the price, loads of space, loads of fan spots, loads of drive bays. Doesn't get much better :3
