The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 179

post #1781 of 19729
I bought a CM 690 last Friday, and am in the process of modding it into a ninja-silent PC. I can't stand this Antec Nine Hundred anymore.

So far I've cut out all the fan grills I want cut out, so all that's really left is to wait for my other stuff to get here.

I will post some pics when I'm done.

Mine is so stock it's amazing. I bought some 120mm from an OCN member a while ago. Several months latter I get my 690... what do I discover? The fans I bought were from a 690 or similar case. So I have installed stock fans which are non-stock

I will be modding..... eventually.

You guys that have the TRUE seated Vertically.. I've heard you will get better performance out of it mounting it Horizontally. the reason for this. is that with whatever cooler you have, you want the Heatpipes going from left, to right.. not top to bottom. as gravity takes effect.. as the "Liquid: I dare call it in the heatpipes stays in the bottom when mounted vertical. If it's horizontal it can move to the otherside better for more effective cooling. this has been tested many times.

Also someone said this a few pages back. about the Top mounted fans. I've heard that if you change the TOP closer to front Fan, and make it an Intake Fan, it supplies the CPU Cooler with Fresh Cold Air, and helps with cooling. and will lower temps. Has anyone tried, or can confirm this. As I'd like to think it will work before disassembling the Top..

Thanks!

I'm not sure about that, i think you would need some kind of a wall/shroud around the heatsink to prevent the TOP-FRONT fan from messing with the airflow... I was thinking about doing the same thing as it would actually help in cooling the RAM in my case... The mentioned fan is right above the DDR2 modules!
I had something like this in mind... what do you guys think?

Oh yes and the ORANGE thingy is supposed to be a shroud or a "wall" to prevent hot air from going to the right side...
I plan on replacing the two fans you guys see in the case with Scythe Kaze-Maru 1900rpm 110CFM , loud as hell, but i modded a switch on top of my case that turns of all case fans at the flick of a button
And here's a comparison between the regular 7-blade CM fan and 11-blade Kaze-Maru


P.S. Hot air tends to go UP, so i'm not sure about the top mounting intake fan...

Well. The cold dense air could come in from the top front and help force out the less dense hot air even faster out the top rear.

they actually work good. i got 3 in my case.

i dont know how well that idea will work. that disrupting the air flow alot.

Exactly what i tought... maybe a lower CFM fan to blow over RAM, and more powerfull ones at the bottom and top for intake/exaust... Hehe, shroud would have to be really well made to make this work

Red is hot air, Blue is cold air, green is areas where airflow is likely to be turbulent.

need to account for the heat from video card as well. also. need fan in 5.25" bay to push air towards rear.
