To tell you the truth i didn't notice any temp differences maybe about 1c to 2c cooler but i also have 2 front intake fans and 2 bottom intakes,and 6 out take fans.
The most difference came when i removed the hard drive bay completely dropped about 3c lower.

Thanks man...I'll do it cause it looks cool. I probably won't use bottom intakes cause that would get some dust in my case and disrupt my airflow pattern. thumb.gif

Very nice rig I must say. Nice CPU cooler.

I am in the midst of yet another mod. This is phase I of 3.
I have taken the 2 Thermaltake white bladed fans off the heat-sink and replaced the push pull configuration to a pull only config (for now)
The Thermaltake fans are rated around 100 cfm each. The Scythe fan is rated at 133cfm.
I have placed one of the Thermaltake fans at the bottom to replace the Rosewill 75 cfm fan I had there prior. (more air will feed the GTX 480 which is good)
I have also been able to move the ram coolers over to cover all 4- dimms.
Thoughts? Keep in mind, there are 2 more stages.. or maybe 3 if I decide to go with a window like jmei..


I would also like to personally thank all of you that voted for me. I know it was 3rd place and the victor won in a landslide but i will be back for MOTM again.
These 690 cases rock. It was the best $80 I spent on my rig! You all are aces in my book! Lets keep this club alive!
