My friend had me build him a new comp under 600. I loved my CM690 so much I ordered one for him too! I didn't do a great job on wire management because I just wanted him out of my house so I can sleep. (Pic before the RAM was installed).

Hey guys, question: I got two extra 120mm blue LED fans from cooler master. They're now mounted on top. Should I leave them there or like 1 on top and 1 in front? I think the last would be better, but I'm not sure

(It'd sure give me better chance for cable management, cause then my 8 pin connector would be able to be run through the back )

Check your hard drive temps. If they run hot, install a front fan. If not, do what you please. Personally, I'd have the first top fan (the right one) pushing air in, so it brings cool air to the processor, and have the second top fan (the left one) pulling the hot air from the CPU out. So the air just comes down, through the processor, and then up and out again.

Well you always have a front bottom fan cooling the HDDs and the GPU a bit, but the CPU might be cooler when I have a front-top intake fan, wouldn't hurt the airflow I guess.

wouldn't that create turbulence inside the case? having an intake/exhaust right next to each other would create a pocket of lukewarm stale air. From all of the diagrams that I've seen, it's better to have the top two fans and the back fan as an exhaust... and use the front/bottom fans for intake.

I have a different model of the same fan.... the packaging says 19dba at 45 CFM, and (i think) 35 dba at 90 CFM..... the company isnt misleading you, its the website. Even if that fan did 90CFM at 45 dba, it still wouldnt be a horrible fan.

Edit: Yea, the packaging says 35 dba.

Nope, because the air being pulled in is then pulled by the CPU fan, and then expelled to where the next fan pulls that air out. So far, it's brought my temps down quite a bit.
