Why that change in fans? I don't like Thermaltake at all, for fans. You can get great quality white ones from other brands aswell...

Question.. did you do your window yourself? and how ever did you manage the cables?
very clean. Repped for sure!

I had a buddy of mine do the window for me. As for the cables I spent a few hours finding the best way to shove everything behind the mobo area.

Just did a little experiment on the black stock fan of the 690 ii ,i really like the cm Excalibur fans so i tried to do something sort of similar at least the holes,i drilled all the holes cut around the fan to give it it's shape and finally painted it.
Actually i think it looks quite good here is a pic.

Really nice! I think it's a pretty solid idea, not sure about those holes in the shroud...nor the paint though. It may impact performance, but it does look cool tongue.gif

I paid nearly $20 for my Excalibur.

I think with a bit of practice, it could look great.

How hard was it working on the curved sides?

Good job none the less thumb.gif

Well i used a jigsaw to cut the curves, i just followed the rounded trim on the fan and after the cutting was done i used sandpaper to smooth the edges.
It was quite easy if you have steady hands,drilling the holes in the exact spacing was more difficult because i didn't mark where the holes will be drilled.
I might add 4 blue leds on the fan to make it even better.
I will try to make another one with one of my better led fans but without the holes.
Just a note i am looking to buy a new fan controller the SCYTHE KAZE 12-CHANNEL as i have a total of 10 fans on my case and possibly will be adding one more.

I personally like the Lamptron range, but I like to connect all my fans on each side to a single channel.

I like the Lamptron controllers too but the best choice i have at my local store in Greece is the Skythe.

meh Running my fans full blast is getting old fast tongue.gif
I was benching and had gpu and all case fans going berserk, boy I can notice it running now lol
This board has some basic fan control, I could use a nice and shiny fan controller myself. I like that analog one which has some valves or whatnot that light up...Really cool!

What can i say about the noise when i turn on the pc it sounds like a rocket is taking off mainly the 4 corsair H100 fans that run at full rpm on power on until they calm down.
It's well known that these fans are really loud, and when i game especially in summer the fans get really loud plus i have to manually adjust my GTX 480 fan speed as well to get acceptable temps.
