- 1 medium/high speed 140 on the bottom to get more cool air in to feed the 285/285's (that's what I'm shooting for too, overkill is fun).
- at least 1 high speed 120mm on the front in the stock location (another if you can manage the space for another fan in the 5.25 bays up top.
- 2 120x20mm fans mounted between the top of the case and the metal mesh after cutting out the honeycomb... OR 2 140mm fans on the inside of the metal.
- 1 120 medium speed as the exhaust.

If possible run the intake fans linked to one channel on the fan controller, same for the exhaust.

As far as brands, you'll get tons of replies on fan brands. I've used Yate Loons that I normally buy from jab-tech.com. They're relatively inexpensive, reliable, and just a simple fan. The fans that I'm running are just straight forward black case fans. No leds, nothing fancy.. but they move enough air to keep my OC cool and the system pretty quiet too.
I have a couple of things.
-I'm having trouble finding 120x20 fans. I see plenty of 120x25's
-I found some scythe 140's that are circular. Will this cause an issue when mounting on the bottom and possibly on the top of the case?
-I was trying to find a controller that would handle all the intakes and exhaust on the same knob but i'm not sure if i'm looking in the right place or for the right thing.

Thanks again

It might be difficult on the egg (I haven't looked clearly through their fan second just yet) to come up with a 120x20, but this is what I just ordered this morning: Yate Loon 120x20mm medium speed case fan.

I can't think of any reason that it would be an issue. I have 120x25's up top right now and have seen (I think so anyway) a 120x38 used up top. As long as it clears your hsf, you're golden.

Basically, each fan doesn't have to have its own channel/knob if you're planning on running certain fans at the same speed. For example, I have one connector from 1 input fan running to my rheobus, then link the other fans by the molex connection. 2 fans per channel on the rheobus runs smooth.

Heya guys I'm gonna be putting my hardware in to my CM690 on Friday probably.

I'm a bit worried about messing something up though... I mean it's simple except for the motherboard. I'm worried about taking it out and putting it in. Does anyone know any good detailed guides and a video that can help me out?

Here ya go.

As far as taking it everything out of your current case, just remove everything from your current board. Place everyone on anti-static / non conductive surface.

see if you can get an anti static wristband, this you will clip to your case and ground yourself so when you handle the mother board you wont have to worry as much, but still place the mobo on an anti static bag. And not to worry its not bad, my sig rig is the first computer ive ever built and the build went smoothly. Just make sure you take your time and dont force things and youll do just fine.

OK here is what i've been able to put together over at Jab-tech
(3) YATE LOON 120mmx25mm Case Fan - High Speed (2 top exhaust, 1 intake front)
(1) YATE LOON 120mmx25 Case Fan - Medium Speed (Rear exhaust)
(1) Scythe "KAZE MARU" 140mm Case Fan - 1900rpm (bottom intake)
Fan Control
Sunbeam RHK-EX-BA Rheobus-Extreme Fan Controller Panel

For cable management i have a ton of short black zip ties but i was also thinking of buying some black wire sleeving. But i'm not sure how much a typical build needs. Right now in my cart i have 5' of 1/2" sleeving and 5' of 1/4" sleeving. Will these sleeves fit over all the different connections? I'm guessing they would have to.

looks good to me. Also, since you're going to no LED, you'll need to unplug the leds from the PCB on the rheobus. There are links around here that show how, but I'm doing the same thing as soon as my fans get here, so I'll snap pics and upload them to my build log.

I'm pretty sure they do. I only bought 3' of the cable sleeves and still had a lot leftover. Also, while you're there, you might want to pick up some fan connection extensions. I bought a few 12" extensions to reach back to the exhausts and still maintain the whole "hide as much as you can" doctrine that we adhere to.

1. I don't have an anti-static bag, what can be a good anti static surface? Would a wooden desk be okay? I've got no carpets in my house.

2. That guide is the same as the one that came with my CM690, and it's not really detailed on how to insert the motherboard and doesn't say anything about removing one.

As far as installing the motherboard into the case, I think it's a pretty clear and detailed guide. You install your stand-offs. Place your board on top of the standoffs. Screw it in. When it comes to taking a motherboard out of a case, remove the peripherals (or don't, some have done it both ways). Unplug the power cables. You can leave the hsf/cpu in the board if you'd like. Unscrew it. Take it out. Take the guide I posted and just do everything backwards.
