Nice rig kens30, I really like the blue paint. You should definitely continue the metallic mayhem inside the case, it'll really pop then. thumb.gif

cole2109, again just wow...from the visual design to her hardware... drool.gif
Nicely done, imo tho, its time to start modding. wink.gif

Hey guys, I'm planning on joining your club once I finalize my purchase for my first build! I have a case specific question to ask, and I cannot think of a better place to ask then here, where all the CM 690 experts are. smile.gif

I selected the CM 920 Advanced for my case, and I'm now trying to figure out how have the coolest system possible. I'm going to select either the D14 or SilverArrow for my CPU heatsink, and I plan on swapping the stock 120mm fans with betters ones. In addition to that, I also want to setup several fans throughout the case to optimize cooling. I don't know how many would be a good amount, but the case supports up to 10 fans (and I think more, if you remove the HDD bays). I was thinking about starting with less and adding more if necessary since I don't have the experience, or knowledge.

Please give me some insight on how many fans I should get, what specific fans to get (I was looking at the Scythe GentleTyphoon and Delta FFB1212EHE) and what sizes (120mm, 140mm, etc). I am a newbie at this, and I want to be sure that my order go smoothly. The last thing I want to happen is to discover and error halfway through my build.

So to recap: What specific fans should I get? Where do I place them? And, what fans would work best on my heatsink? I also plan on adding a fan controller to my case so I can regulate the speed. it would also be nice to get some guidelines on how to set it up in the bios so fans can automatically pick up speed as necessary. I'm paranoid about having high temperatures, and I want to minimize that.

CDD: ASUS DRW-24B1ST

**GPU: Will add a second card if needed. "Need" will be dependent on game playability on highest possible settings (flexible with turning down settings that don't affect visuals like AA; I hear at my resolutions the picture looks great regardless)

Frankly you do not need many fans in this case.

I would suggest placing 2x 140mm fans on top a 140mm fan at front.

All the other fans make a minimal difference.

My personal preference of fans are Bitfenix Spectre Pro LED or the Spectre LED. They are both very quiet even at full speed, and there lights are amazing.

If LED's are not your thing get the non-LED one's.

As for a fan controller go for something with no bells n whistle's, they tend to be a lot better and reliable.

I think you can't go wrong with anything from Lamptron, Scythe or NZXT.

I have had a couple of Aerocool controllers and did not like either.

This is all my opinion and my 2cents.gif
