The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1559

post #15581 of 19729
You could do the 2x120mm at the top, under the bezel, but above the frame. That 140mm from the top, put onto the bottom. There is the door too. I would advise doing exhaust on the door, unless you get a dust filter for it, then intake is fine.

Simply put it;
TOP - 2 x 120mm
BACK - 1 x 120mm
FRONT - 1 x 140mm
BOTTOM - 1 x140mm

Other places to put fans are as follows:

behind mobo - 1x 80x80x15
vga holder - 1x 80x80x[COLOR="rgb(139, 0, 0)"]15[/COLOR]
attached to the bottom hard drive bracket (ziptied/twisty-tied/etc.) - 1 x 120mm (140mm maybe?)
inside of the 5.25" bay with only 1 slot filled (ziptied/twisty-tied/etc.) - 1 x 120mm or 140mm

Thanks for the quick response, my 450 will have a stock cooler and will exhaust internally. I will look into a side panel fan for sure. I see some people mounting the side panel fan on the outside of the case, if there any reason to do that or would it work just as effectively mounted on the inside? Thanks for the help

I believe that if the efficiency is affected by mounting it outside, the difference is probably negligible

I keep mine inside for the looks

Thanks for the info, i'm wondering about fan sizes, the coolermaster site says the left side will handle either a 120 or 140 mm fan, do i need to go 140mm or would 120mm be enough?

Thanks for all the help

140mm fans move more air making less noise than 120mm ones, at the same RPM level.
So, usually its better to go with 140mm but, since the 450 is not so hot as to really need a lot of air to be cool, its more of a taste thing or a economical choice. If you already have a 120mm one at hand, you could install it and see if its enough for you

Where did you route to top IO wires? Or you don't use them and just tucked them up there?

=P

I removed one SATA for eSATA port and the front audio cable. It's pointless since I'll be jumping between Firewire 800 or USB3 and I have an external sound blaster card 5.1 X-Fi.

The Other cable, switch + LED and the USB cable are ducted tape entirely in black... I don't have cable sleeve materials... maybe I should buy some. =P

hmm... I actually tried to remove front audio etc.
However all of them are glued??? I could only remove the top HDD sata cable.

Lolz or what.
