They cost the same where I love.

Thanks. Reply quick please I wanna get it today.
Get the window... it doesn't really matter for temps and the one with the panel-window looks better.

If you're on a carpet, you could still do it like that, but it's really a personal preference.
So you are saying that any PSU can be flipped to work either way? If this is the case then i'll have much less of a headache

Yeah, the 690 has holes for mounting it right side up or updside down.

sweet, now i'm sold
post #2635 of 19729
I just bought a 690, and running a gigabyte 750-sli ds4 and a hyper 212. I also have a 2ndary 120mm fan for the processor, and 120mm fans all throughout the case. Which direction is it best to mount the cooler master 212? facing the rear of the case or the top?

Thanks

it fits with a bit a room (maybe 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch) between the back of the card and the cage for the optical disks.

If I were you, I'd set the airflow on the processor to blow back as the rear case fan will adequately exhaust everything.

If you wanna see pics of a 285 in a CM690, check my build log.

it also depends on psu.

All my psu's were fine either way, but the new rosewill psu i bought only had 1 set of holes to allow it mounted fan down and air out back, rather than upside down.

silverstone, coolermaster psu's were fine

Hey mates,

I am ordering the 690 tomorrow and I wanna know some stuff

1. Do I need to screw in the HDD's, Optical drives into the bays?
2. I heard that Installing an optical drive is hard. By that I mean removing the mesh part from the outside so I can insert a disc. How would I install one?

3. Is there anything else I need to look out for.

If there is a video covering this stuff please link.

Thanks.

the HDDs dont need screws, just pop them into the trays and slide the trays into the rack
the optical drives dont need screws, but the tool less lock for them only holds one side, you can put screws into the other side

the hardest part of installing the optical drives is removing the whole front part
i would put everything on with out bolting it down first to figure out how you want to run your wires
