Use some rubber grommets on the side panel fan.

It feels like my last post in here was 2 or three days ago... might have something to do with only 3-4 hours of sleep in the past 80 hours.... where is the insomniac thread?

With the sidefans you wanna put rubber gromets between the fan and the side panel as the vibration makes lots of noise..

Also get a lower speed fan as the fast air will whistle in as going through the grill. Better yet. Remove the Side Panel fan. I did and temps got better.

The CM 690's airflow goes from bottom front to top rear. and even better with some 120mm fans on top. So when you add the sidepanel fan all your doing is getting a side flow that ruins the regular front back airflow. and gets the air swirling instead of going straight out the top back.. I found that removing the side panel fan actually lowered my temps by 1-2c total. I noticed a solid difference with it off. and I've never used it since.

edit* Also I just got the PC P&C 750w Silencer PSU. they are one of the best you can buy. were over $200 in August. and now 144 on newegg.com. monday it went down to $114.00 with a 25 MIR and I had to get it. lol. thats cuz my HX520 is not enough power for my $.0 Ghz Quad and 260.

Does anyone have the PCP&C 750w in there CM 690. and how well did the power wire fit for the MOBO.. I've heard they are plenty long. but I'm just wondering. or any PCP&C PSU for that matter. so if you have one in your 690 let me know.

Thanks! (Also when I remove my side panel my temps get better) obviously cuz it's getting more air. So how can I improve this so opening it doesn't make temps better. Does that mean I'm not getting enough intake. or what?

Well for my case my CPU fan comes right up to that side vent... so it doesn't matter much. so I'm going to be putting a 140MM on the side... and replacing the stock thermaltake fan on cpu cooler with either this http://www.svc.com/a2368.html or this http://www.svc.com/y720ccd-25k1-gp.html

Hi All,

This is a pretty sweet forum! I just picked up my 690 case last week and I am assembling it now. I will post pics when complete. So far I put a q6600 with a Gigabyte ga-ep45-ds3r/ds3. I have a couple of questions if anyone would like to throw out some help. First I was looking around and I see how many of you put your cables behind the motherboard. Is this suggested and if so, what is the best way to go about it? I also put Dominator 2 x 2gb ddr2 1066. I know Windows will only see about 3.5. I was planning on putting in xp pro 32 bit but now I am thinking about 64. Any suggestions? Also if anyone has good suggestions for my case, I would be glad to hear them! Great forum!

look at my first post on this thread. i have a small list of people who have shown their cable management. should help a little or at least give u an idea on what to do.

yah if u can put the cables behind mobo, its best to. increases airflow in your case so you dont have it all blocked by cables. it looks better as well..

you may need to do some slight cuts to the lip on the mobo tray. that might prevent some cabling be done. if u have a dremel or some sort of rotary tool, its easy work there. just cut like some slots for cables to go past and your golden.

if u can get access to a 64-bit version, its suggested. if u have the space, putting a 120mm in the 5.25" bay would help airflow as well.

Some nice looking cases, that's for sure. Just wondering if anyone has removed the HDD cage to run a 240 rad on the floor of this case? I'm in the midst (sorry, there will be no progress pics) of modding mine and found that if you relocate the HDD cage (I'm using one from another case) into the optical drive bay area, you can fit the PSU, 240 rad and 38mm all internally with intake coming from below. I dremeled out another 120mm fan hole in the floor next to the stock one to make it work. It's pretty tight, but if your PSU is not a behemoth, it will work. Here's a quick sketch of the plan thus far. Extra length on the tubing to the resevior is to aid in easy filling/draining.

Thanks for the tip. I should probably pull the mobo out before I dremel, correct?

I want your address. If you do choose to dremel while any part of your system is in the case, including your PSU, I reserve the express right to arrive at your house, unannounced, and beat you with a sock full of woodscrews.
