The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1653

post #16521 of 19729
Anyone done any spray painting on the inside of the 690 std?

I happen to have some metallic blue, and some black paint. I'm not really one for how a case looks normally, but I don't like the internal silver chassis of the std case, I have some paint so why not, if it all goes pete tong then I have my excuse to buy the Advanced biggrin.gif

Blue will go well with my components. My plan is a completely blue inside, apart from the drive cages which will be black, but keep the rest of the external chassis black as well. Anyone done/seen anything similar and have any advice? Sanding/priming required?
I reckon I can get a pretty good finish once I've stripped everything down, just bought a new MB and want to sort out my cable mgt etc anyway, so ideal time to do it.

I know some people have gone for an all black interior which is obviously a lot simpler but I wanna be different, like I say, i'm normally more interested in HW mods for performance/cooling reasons and not concerned with aesthetics.

EDIT: Was looking for some info/examples. Stumbled accross THIS which has encouraged me slightly, although I won't be doing any side panel mods!

For anyone that owns this case, which would be everyone in this club - this is a kit one should have in addition to the USB 3.0 top header piece. so cheap

I would just in case.. if you need extra parts in the case you break them - like I did. There is an extra filter so if you use side fans. I broke my VGA card bracket (dont ask why)
I just like having extra parts biggrin.gif

looks great! thumb.gif is that modular PSU? My cables are all managed too but since I have a fan controller with 5 temps... I have wiring all over the place.

NVM - its modular..duh should have looked at sig..

need some help.

I had the 690 I, now I'm on some small case and want to go back to the 690 II

the internal clearance, between the top panel and the case itself, is just 25mm height?

I wish to use a 30mm rad INSIDE the top panel, not inside the case.... could I do it?

I highly doubt you would fit anything but one of those black ice low profiles. Standard sized fans barely squeeze inside.

I had to cut the plastic grill away because the screws stuck out too far.
