The Cooler Master 690 Club - Page 266

post #2651 of 19406
if your 690 is like mine the top of the front panel does not like to stay in. problem was solved with a couple 1/4 inch dia. screws. push the panel on and while holding, put the screw in to the opening of the tabs that are so posed to hold it in place , the dia. of the screw will keep them spread apart thus holding the panel in place

it helped to tape the screw to the screwdriver as I didn't have help. it's a three hand job

Case update.
I found that after i removed the mesh on the side fan, things quite down a bit.
I also picked up the coolit pure to replace my stock intel cooler.

Nice rig jackbarrel. That green+black color theme I see there looks good, only thing I can think to change/add is painting the inside black like myself and some others have done. (Of course paint is purely for looks).

pffft. Only for looks? it adds another 3mhz to your OC and drops the temps by another 1.7c

the scheme does look nice, and painting is easy. Self-etching primer is your friend if you decide to do it.

well yeah, but only if your system incorporates a CM690. If you're in a NZXT/thermaltake/antec, it actually drops your clock speed, makes your machine run louder, and raises temps by 14c.

I lol'd. Oh yeah. Btw, I said only for looks so then others wouldnt be painting their case, we cant be giving everyone OC tips now can we.

I actually used a bit of Primer(Black) on the inside of my side covers, then painted them(black), but didn't like the way it turned out so the rest of my case didn't get any Primer lol. Maybe another day I'll sand it down and use Primer and more than just 1 or 2 coats(of primer and paint).

... And dont forget the green fast and furious neons will give it an addition .5 GHz as well.
3.25 + 3 + .5 = 6.75 Ghz!!


I will be painting it black but right now my priorities are two GTX 295 a 640G Caviar as I didnt know the 500G was slower >.<. Well actually its school.

Im looking for someone to trade my green CC tubes for UV ones (logisys kit comes with two that blinds you)
Also once I get my watercooling kit, i will have black tubing (hopefully norprene) and green UV anti kinky

has anyone ever traded the green trim on the Hulk version for the regular chrome or vice versa

I currently have a CM-690 case but am planning on ordering a new one to paint/mod... any recommendations on what to do? I am pretty stock, my specs are below. I want to paint the inside black, not too into LEDs. I want to get a good air flow going. I was thinking of using a few of these Silverstone Scool121 for fans.
