I think you guys are misinterpreting what I was saying. I don't mean route it behind the tray, I mean like actually taking out the motherboard, and routing it underneath. I had to do that, as mine wasn't long enough to go behind the tray.

I took the side intake fan off.. and then modded case and put a 12x12 window on the side panel. Click my name on the list for pictures.

This is a great case, and next week I'll either be selling my PERFECT condition CM 690, thats painted black inside, and modded with a Side Window, or I'll be giving it as a freebie. So either for sale, or a freebie. As I'm getting the Coolermaster HAF Friday..

get the CM 690. you'll love it, It's served me very well.

yes, you can mount the 24, and 8 pin cables, or any cables for that matter under the Motherboard, saves the 2-3 inches you loose going behind the mobo tray. but almost all the new PSU's or good brands are usually long enough to fit.

So is it not a big deal to run a PSU with a bottom mounted fan, when the PC will be on the carpet? I see a few users have done so, and I haven't decided whether I should buy a top fan or bottom fan PSU.
post #2628 of 19729
Ok thanks but which version should I get?

The one with 2 side fans or the one with 1 side fan and side window? Will having 2 side fans give me cooler temps (more than 1'C)?

They cost the same where I love.

Thanks. Reply quick please I wanna get it today.

PSU's are all the same. The fans aren't mounted on bottom or top. It's how you choose to mount the PSU itself in the case. Usually, it's fine to have the fan pulling in air from outside the case, that way its cold air, and goes straight through and out the back of the case. If you're on a carpet, you could still do it like that, but it's really a personal preference.

If there's a bit of concern about your machine being on carpet, could you not pick up a small metal rack or something like this (http://www.lakewoodconferences.com/d..._Wire_Rack.jpg) for your case to call home? I have my 690 on the top rack and a cable modem/external hard drive/router/etc... stored underneath. Saves space and is pretty inexpensive.
