Hi, its this one:

http://www.caseking.de/shop/catalog/Be-Quiet-Luefter-Silent-Wings-Pure-80mm::14585.html

Would recommend a dust filter like this:
http://www.caseking.de/shop/catalog/Luefter/Staubschutz-Filter/DEMCiflex-Staubfilter-120mm-quadratisch-schwarz-weiss::13541.html

One question:
Im still using the original drivers for Asus Xonar Essence card. Should i go to custom unidrivers? Anybody knows? =)

Well is $23 with the shipping?

 

If you need USB 3.0 on top I say YEAAAAAAH! biggrin.gif

 

I did the USB 3.0 top panel on my case some months ago purchased for either $11.99 or $12.99 I forget and see it went up since to $17.99 each.

While I haven't been able to use my USB 3.0 to the extent of actually transferring files with a 3.0 capable drive; I can only help by looking at it from an "educated guess" point of view, but I hope it's to some consideration.

I have two SATA III-capable hard drives and when I transfer files between them, the maximum steady transfer rate I get is 80-90 Megabytes/sec. Comparing that with the transfer speeds of a steady rated USB 2.0, it's 20-30 Megabytes/sec.

What we can see by comparing between those two is that the potential benefits of USB 3.0 would increase your speeds by 60 Megabytes/second. I'm sure you can guess from there that it could be because either the HDD is bottlenecking, or that is the actual speed of USB 3.0.

Under the circumstance that a bottleneck is occuring, this is could be corrected if you use an SSD instead. You'll get the speeds that USB 3.0 were meant to run at because an SSD is known to have incredibly faster Read/Write speeds than an HDD.

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong through any of this.



In the end, considering these factors, you should ask yourself if you're going to be using USB 3.0 enough for this purchase to be beneficial. Also, is a 60MB/s increase in transfer rates (If you're using an HDD) worth it?

Personally, I would buy the top panel if I had USB 3.0 hardware to use with it. tongue.gif

thank you very much for the in-depth analysis of reasons to buy vs not buy. I think at this time, I will probably just stick with the current one i have since I just spent some time modding and painting the top bezel. I have 2 USB 3.0 ports in the rear I/O area if i really need them. I do plan to buy an external HDD for back-ups and using for work. At that point, I will probably buy it. I plan to put some extra funds into my 2 past additions to my PC.. an SSD and the custom water loop.

After I did what I did to my case thus far, I will need to find areas to vinyl. I am surprised more people dont vinyl their cases.. easier and more consistent finish as opposed to painting.

Can i fit this baby inside the 69II Advanced without removing the HDD tray? They say 304mm on the coolermaster page, but i just need to be sure.

This is my top TF3 6950 length 270mm, the gap between tip of shroud and the HDD cage is approx. 34mm i measured it so 270+34= 304 your card measures 279mm I believe so BUY IT! thumb.gif

Hi guys! Great thread, ive seen some extremely nice builds here and even got a few ideeas for mine; here it is:









The sidepanel window picture was made a while ago, there were some modifications made to the internals since then, thats why some things dont look right;
That is a fairly old sistem in there, a 1090T with 4GB G.Skill Ram @ 2000MHz (i forget the model number) and an XFX 5850 with a TRad2
GTX on it and a BeQuiet fan... Case fans are Enermaxes... I should upgrade my system but i love that motherboard, i cant bring myself to give it up smile.gif ... oh and obviously that is a 690 II Advanced, i bought it for 70€ 2years ago and for this price i can honestly say this is the best case i could find, even today!
I know watercooled rigs look nicer, if nothing else, but they are expensive and i am not ready to put water near electronics... yet
I think ill add another 140mm led fan in front and change the rear 120 for a led version soon enough .Also, id like to do something to hide that ugly 5,25" drive bay cage; I dont like the way it looks with the toolless mounts and all those holes; id like to put something more plain in its stead, does anyone have any ideea?
