got my case, looks great, much better feeling than the 690 I I had.
Just the metl seems a little more "flimsy", but probably my intolerance... lol

pity my cam died on me last week. After mounted, phone cam.... sucks

Will do, i installed my H70 earlier and got 8pin PSU and 24pin PSU extenders in the post so i can route the cables more neatly

hi pros, need some guidance.

i have a CM 690 II plus NVIDIA edition case rig just setup in dec. I though of installing two more fan at the bottom after removing the hd cage. However, I try fitting the top and back stock 120mm fan on the bottom (which I replaced with 2 new LED fan), but can't find the right fit to hold those two fan; no screw hole at the 120mm location.

My question is, if I want to put two more fan at the bottom, I should use 140mm fan? Or the stock 120mm fan work? Can anyone show me a picture on how to fit it nicely on the bottom? Quite new to rig modding so apologies for the noob question. Thanks!

There is no need for you to use two fans in the bottom of the case. A single 120mm fan will do perfect. Your going to want to place it in the space closer to the PSU. Some other advice I can give you is to use a side panel fan in the lower slot, blowing in at the GPU's, and use 120 or 140mm fan in the front of the case, but lower it down as low as the mounting will let you, and lastly hang a fan off the back of the HDD cage, to blowing at the GPU. This will give great flow.

I agree with what Khatoic said....

Also, consider your fan orienetation for flow pressure.

Prioritise your cooling based on your setup. i.e. If your are not running major OC on your CPU, then you will probably be more focused on cooling your GPU and vice vers.

If your OCing both then it gets a little more difficult.

Also remember to filter your intakes where possible, reduction of intake dust will keep your system looking shiny, reduce cleaning requirements, and assist in cooling.

People will provide no end of arguments about positive vs negative pressure.. In reality, it comes down to individuals setups. The end result is that you want to get rid of your heat as efficiently as possible without introducing too much dust and noise.

See my CM 690 Std:
700

My cooling is orientated around the fact that the AC Accelero Xtreme cooler (excellent by the way) is dumping masses of heat inside the case, instead of assisting in exhausting the heat as the stock cooler did.

My priorities were not pos/neg airflow, but providing enough cool air from side panel and bottom intakes for the AC cooler. Even though I have a good OC, the H80 and it's fans handles the CPU pretty good so is not a major concern for me.

It is worth doing some research on case pressure, then it's a case or trial and error.
