I need some suggestions for Where to put a Dual 120mm RAD in my CM 690 Case,

I'm getting either a BIX II, or the MCR-220 RAD. and I'm not sure where I should put it. Can anyone give me some suggestions, will it fit inside the case somewhere?

Hi everyone, I have a question about the 690 case and a S-1283.

Is there any noticable difference between orientating the heatsink to have the fan blow through the rear or having it blow through the top? I recently bought some OCZ Freeze for reapplication and thought that since hot air rises, and there are 2 fans on the top rather than 1 on the rear, that the pc would be cooler if the fan blew through the top.

Since I am going to remove the heatsink, I might as well use the chance to do this now rather than taking it off later.

My case is very messy and unorganized right now, so I'm gonna hold back on the pics for now, but once I organize everything I would be glad to post pics.

Quiz, all cases are different, even when we all have the CM 690.. You might have different fans than me on the front, or rear. I changed out both my front fans, and added some pretty high powered fans on the top. if they aren't as strong as the rear fan, then they wont suck the air out as well.

basically.. if this makes sense try this. Don't look at all the metal on the heatsink. but rather look at the heat pipes.. You want the actual pipes to be going left to right.. instead up and down.

like this
http://www.davidcappello.com/img/S1283.jpg

see how they go down the heatsink, and back up.. going north and south. you want to turn it sideways so the pipes are going left to right.. I've been told this helps with the heat in the pipes. Not sure if it works. I used to have the Tuniq Tower. and I mounted it so it faced up to the top 120mm fans. and my temps were no better, if not worse. I could have also maybe had a bad mount. So you might want to just try both ways, more than once. and see how it goes. Make sure your using AS5, or OCZ Freeze for the TIM.

Another suggestion is leave it blowing towards the rear of the case. and put the closest to the front mounted Top fan as a intake fan.. so it blows fresh air in the case.. right in front of the CPU cooler. then the cooler will suck that fresh air right in. Does that make sense?

good luck! I removed my side panel fan and my temps dropped about 2-3c

Can I join the club? This thread was the deciding factor in my first case purchase. I was looking at the antec 900 and the sonata III but after seeing them in person and feeling how cheap and flimsy they were there was no doubt this was the case for me. Plus the price was a freaking steal!
Mods to date...
sleeved all the wires that weren't already done (fans and fan controller).
cut out the honeycomb grill on the front and top of the case.
added 2 120mm yate loon low speed fans butted up together in a ghetto test shroud in the 5.25 bays for intake. it seems to be doing the job...
covered up the top opening on the side panel to see if it helps with temps and airflow.
cut the back of mobo tray lip so I could pass the 24 pin cable around and behind. it did weaken the structure but nothing a strategically placed Q-tip can't fix, lol
Still to come...
paint inside and out.
side window. I was thinking bout filling in the holes and cutting a tattoo style spiderweb into it. maybe put some lexan or mesh behind that
make a cover extending from the psu to the hdd rack to hide all my unused wires.
Here's a couple pix and thanx for starting this thread

Just got mine. Question, what type of fans fit in the side behind the CPU? I tried my 80mm but it was to thick. and my god was reaching that 4 pin cord a b****. Barely made it.

Pics are just before and after cable management
