Take your time, Don't rush. Triple check every screw, nut, bolt, plug, wire, cable and connection. Take lots of photo's biggrin.gif Cable managment can be a PITA depending on what PSU you have. I work from the largest PSU cable to the smallest(like mobo cable first, Molex last).. Not sure if its just a weird way I do things but it seem's to make it less frustrating. Good luck on the mod!

Molex connectors are the Bane of my existence. I cannot agree more though. Take your time and b smart with it. The 690 has good room for cables and if you have a lot of extra utilities..ie fan controller, cathodes and card readers.
It will work, go from large cables to smaller cables. 24 pin cable first... than CPU and the rest of the PCI connectors next.. than molex and PWM connectors. thumb.gif

Hey, would you be able to take any other closer shots of how you mounted 2 fans on the front? I am looking at doing this myself but am hoping to find some guidance before i start hacking up the case. What cutting/modding to the front of the case itself did you ahve to do other that the plate?

how do I explain, i've cut out the whole "beveled" are, then i made this front plate from acrylic, so it was pretty easy, to draw holes for cutting and stuff. Then i just riveted the acrylic to the case, and then i installed the fans simply using zip ties, but i think i have measured something wrong, because the bottom of the front panel didnt want to go completely in place. so i removed the "heads" of the zip ties, and now it sits ok smile.gif hope that helps.

Planning on doing a custom WC build for my computer and my current case (Define R4) can't accomodate the setup. I really like the layout and the option available with the CM 690II Advanced but i had a question for those who are running a WC loop in the case. Is there enough room between the fan mounts on the top of the case and the edge of the MB to fit a 240mm rad in a pull config? The reason i ask is because the Extreme4 MB has the 8-Pin connector in a weird position and it makes the cable stick up,reducing the space. This is why i couldn't top mount my h100 in the define r4.

I have a rad up top it's the GT Black Ice 120 LP and I've got two CM Sickleflow pushing air into the case from the top lid, I personally tried to put the rad up top first but ran into issues of not having room for fittings without modding and this LP rad (which is one of the thinnest I could find) still wouldn't fit without modifying the top lid.



Hope this helps answer your question somewhat.
