Hassle free and really quiet with the same performance of an H100.

Thermalright Silver Arrow SB-E Extreme -> 165mm height
Coolermaster V8 -> 161 mm height

Considering that my side window almost touches V8, it's a little bit difficult to fit Thermalright in there.
Unfortunately, my case has limitations...

My options are pretty limited. I do not want to o/c like crazy but i believe a sweet 4GHz is enough for me.

Then the V8 with decent fans might be enough albeit noisy.
You could save some money and go with an H80i or the H90/Kraken X60 which will be better noise wise.
Remember your chip acts like a regular SB chip, and the max temp is 85c for prime95, and 75c for extra safety.

Semi decent but an H80i would beat that...I'd go for the 140mm size coolers though if they fit or a True Spirit...

^^^ Neat thumb.gif

But if you are only using two HDD's, put them in the top two trays, remove the bottom four.

Just my 2cents.gif

Trust me, I already tried that configuration.biggrin.gif  Heck I was one of the first ones that placed Corsair grommets inside the case and received so many inquiries once I first posted my case photos in 2011 lol!

 

I like having that top fan on the drive cage closer to the GPU and wouldn't like the idea of just hanging it from the top screw holes without the bottom part of that hdd cage.

 

I get better temps the way it's set up, plus I have two frontal intake fans verses the just one if I took out the bottom part of the drive cage.

Hi other 690 owners,
I was wondering if any one could point me in the direction of lighting the frount mesh, not just with light up fans, like with LEDs or cold cathodes. Does anyone know of someone attempting or doing this before?
Thanks
