airflow will be great if you manage your cables.

also, please... please:
it's "cause" not "coz"
"that" instead of "dat"

So there's going to be an update on my behalf this afternoon as well. I'll be putting my 690 back together after replacing my low speed yates for mediums, and punching a few holes for cable management.
O it's 'cause

or better yet

because

I think the front fan is absolutely terrible, the other two are OK as others have said, the front fan barely even spins, its just there to be green/blue whichever it is in your case. But I guess that's what a fan controller is for.

trogalicious, (edit: what paint?). In some pics it looks good like Gun Metal Grey, but you mentioned flat black in your build log. Enlighten me plz.

You cut out the top fan grills, but why not the rear? I cut out the rear fan grill and the plastic crap in the front and top, and I'm using a wire fan grill for the rear fan. I actually did not cut the front-bottom fan grill. Next time I get a chance I will though.

I build my own 4in3 device module, but I'd like to see what you have going. . Right now I'm using the 3.5" adapter for my single HDD and its right above my DVD burner. I have 2 fans above the HDD in sequence for a wind tunnel effect.

It's a metallic charcoal on the inside, and oddly, the side panels are matte black.

I got lazy? Kidding. I have cats. I hate cats. I'd much rather have them not digging around in my PC though.. and the rest of the grills that are cut out are going to be covered anyway.

I measured down to the 1/16th of an inch on the 4 in 3 that I had ordered.. have the size of pretty much everything laid out, just need to get sketchup on here. Being OCD and having CAD/CAM experience is a bad combo.

That's kinda the same thing I'm looking at doing. 2 120mm fans will find home in the device bay... as soon as the paint dries for it.

Every time I plan on painting something, the weather craps out on me and I have to wait 2 or 3 more days before it's nice enough to finish.

That metallic charcoal looks damn good.
I hear you, I know about the top mesh . I don't use top fans, but I cut out the plastic anyways, another time I'll cut out the top and front-bottom (metal) grills also (maybe).

Whoa, down to 1mm. I recently got sketchup, cool program. I haven't exactly worked w/ CAD much, but I took drafting in high school(1-2 yrs ago). Note: I usually only use mm/cm for fan sizes and the like, otherwise I use inches and/or feet.

Holding mine is a mix of twist ties and custom made "L" brackets out of tin(cans).
Edit:Yes, I will make a better looking & better working way to secure the 5.25" bay fans.
Been raining the past 5 or 6 days here, can't do much of anything outside right now.
