Hello all,

I just received my CM 690 II (basic), now I was wondering a few things about the airflow in general..

I made a drawing (with my paint skills ) to explain it:



You can see the two stock fans on that drawing, and then the fans I was planning on adding.

The standard fans are both 120mm. I was thinking of adding a 140(or 120) at the top as an exhaust and a 120mm on the side (GPU height) as an intake.

I'm not sure how I'll position my PSU (fan facing up or down..).

Any suggestions?

Not planning on doing very high OC'ing, just some OC'ing that it still runs quite cool. Using a Scythe Mugen 2 Rev. B.

I wouldn't rear intake. It brings in warm air from psu and gpu.

Yeah, don't really want to do that either..

I think I'll just stick with an extra 140mm added on top and see how the temps evolve. I can always easily add another side fan later on.
post #15657 of 19729
I would block off the rear top and put a fan as an intake on the front top, remove the HDD cage if not needed, move the rear exhaust (if you have push/pull on the Mugen 2) inside the 5.25 bay.

I ended up adding a bunch of fans and getting minuscule results, I'm changing my entire airflow setup today once some brackets I painted dry.

I have a fan any place one can be added with in reason bottom two 120mm - front one 120mm and one 140mm - side two 140mm - top two 140mm - rear one 120mm - back one 80mm. One thing I do that I don't read about very often is, I tossed or sold rather every stock fan that came with my case other then the 140mm in the front. then I replaced and added only fans that moved the same CFM, being 69CFM in my case other then the back 80mm. I alway found matching all your fans with the same CFM worked the best for me, and in this case anyway I paid less then $5.00 for the 120mm and $7.00 for the 140mm fans. So if a fan fails it is nether here nor there, as I didn't pay very much just buy another.

Nice one Mate. Powdercoating is really beautiful... and the paint last longer too.

I got mine setup like this, basic as anything. Adding the extra fan to the top, and putting in demciflex filters in dropped my temps by 4 - 5 degrees. If you can put a 120mm fan on the HDD bay, that should make it a tad cooler. I only got 1cm clearance between the hdd bay and the 6870 lol so i couldnt.
