The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 1847

post #18461 of 19729
I'm looking to replace my front panel's 3.5mm jack after having a little accident, where I tripped over my headphones one day getting up from my chair in a hurry.

Anyone know a model number, or some place I can buy one of these things?

IMHO: You would be better served if you replaced the entire top panel with the upgraded USB 3.0 which has 2 USB 2.0, 2 USB 3.0, a mic and headphone jack - it doesn't have the eSATA however. smile.gif  By the way, I did this upgrade as well.

 

In what part of the world are you located so to better assist?

 

Here's the Cooler Master Store USA link of that panel: http://www.cmstore-usa.com/cm-690-ii-advanced-usb-3-0-i-o-top-panel-oem-package/

 

Here's the Cooler Master Store Europe link of that panel: http://www.cmstore.eu/cases/cm-690/cm-690-ii/cm-690-ii-advanced-usb-3-0-top-panel/

The green one on the left of the pink. The only thing i could find remotely similar is in this random ebay listing: http://www.ebay.com/itm/50PCS-5-PIN-1-8-3-5mm-Stereo-Jack-Socket-PCB-Panel-Mount-3-5MM-Headphones-/320771552520?pt=US_Audio_Cables_Adapters&hash=item4aaf797508

I didn't know that they sold an upgraded top panel...

Why go through trying to repair it - no way!

 

I say just get the new panel and you'll then have the USB 3.0 as well.wink.gif

Ya just get the USB 3.0 top panel. It's not really an "upgraded" panel, it's more of a replacement part for the newer 690 II cases.

Correct, not so much a upgraded panel just an upgrade from just having USB 2.0 ports so I call it an "upgraded panel". biggrin.gif

Yes bus isn't it always more rewarding in the end to do the repair yourself? I replaced the eSATA 3 Gbit/s port that came on the stock "original" top panel with an eSATAp 6 Gbit/s +usb2.0 & power port. biggrin.gif ...why not, I use the hell outta eSATA on the regular and rely on the upgraded transfer speeds! I had to add another ground from the top I/O (to the chassis) because of the extra power tho.

Since I had grown quite fond of my top panel over the years and didn't want to replace it (especially after the work I'd already put in), a couple of usb3.0 ports on the lower part of our case's front mesh seemed like a good spot for this added connectivity.



Any case modder knows that even when replacing/modding something that's as insignificant as a port, nothing is better than the feeling you get from knowing you "did it yourself". Reach for the stars TheDevo, if you want to repair that broken audio jack...do it!

You you you you you show-off! lol! tongue.gif biggrin.gif  Good work.

 

But not everyone is capable or wants to like you did.

 

TheDevo was given an option and now it's his choice of course how he wants to rectify his scenario.

Right! After finally reading the all of the 1847 pages of posts on this thread, it is time for me to sign up for the ride.

I've had a stock CM690ii Advanced for a couple of years now and recently got the itch to have a fiddle with it; which led me to find this site. I have had a few ideas, bought a Dremel (loving the little fella) and have made a start.

Already I have halted my original mod as a more crazy idea popped into my mind and the missus is kind'of OK with me going to town on it. (this has to fit around work, home & two children so may take a long time...)

Anyway here is some of the current stuff;






























Basically, I treated the old girl to a H100i CPU cooler along with some quiet edition corsair sp fans and the colored rings on the fans have sparked my imagination.

The original mod was simply to clean up the front panel to show off the 140mm fan ring and clean up the top and front grills.

This is the latest idea;




More details to follow...

Nice mod idea BUT, please, DO cover that awful CM thing (whatever that is that I fail to identify). Use the mesh or whatever, it looks horrible tongue.gif
