can i just tape the mesh back on cause i wanna put the fan somewhere else?
You can... but the side fan is to help cool you graphics card (along with the bottom fan if you have a long card).

Maybe think about ordering more - they don't live forever and there is alot of fan room in the 690. It's a shame you can't Newegg in Poland / the EU, but I bet you have your sources!

Well I'm already gotta have a bottom and front fan which will cool the GPU effectively. I've got 5 fans, all except for the side, but from what I heard the side fan disrupts air flow...

looking at this from an aerodynamic perspective, yes it does, but looking at it logically your pushing cold air in, and letting the heat rise towards the top two fans and the rear fan. A lot of people say that disrupting the flow like this is a bad idea but my opinion is if you can get more cold air in the computer that will lower the temps . Just my opinion and anyone feel free to correct me if im wrong.

I heard that too... I gues it sort of depends of your setup. Maybe some experimenting is in order.

Regardless, the suggestion to use screws to hold the filter grille on the case is a good idea. You probably don't want that thing falling onto the back of your video card while it is operating. *Poof, imprisoned souls within card are released*

The screws will never reach if you try to run the screws into the fan first!)



Forgive me if I'm not understanding this right, but if we are still talking about the same bottom intake fan, I really don't see why it would be hitting the bottom honeycomb. Could it also be that what the black filter with the clips is for is to act as a spacer? Like I said, It does fit 120mm fans when using fan screws...

Thanks.

And yes, any fan hits the filter AND the bottom mesh, not sure why, the only one that didn't hit was the front intake fan when I tried it, but that one is absolutely garbage at anything but lighting up. I have to get replacements soon.

I heard people say that as well but when I added a side fan it helped my cpu and GPU temps a couple degrees. I have a Scythe Slipstream 88CFM for my front intake and 140mm Scythe 61cfm for the side. I order all new exhaust fans 2 140mm Sharkoon S1402515P-3 for top exhaust and 1 Nanoxia FX12-2000 for rear exhaust.

Is that the one at performance pcs?

Did you also see that one UV fan that looks exactly like the Nanoxia but its called Gelid, they look exactly the same, are they from the same manufacturer??

I saw those at performance pcs but I got the fans from Crazypc not sure who makes the Gelid fans. These are the fans I bought http://www.crazypc.com/products/5750.html http://www.crazypc.com/products/fx12-2000-56262.html
