post #3131 of 19729
how are the stock fans that come with it. I believe theres 3? Im looking at a 2x kaze (2000rpm) in top bay and back and 2 x S-flex (1600rpm)in the top/back and the front. But I want to know if the stocks are any good.

When I get a chance I'll take my IO shield out & paint it black to match the rest of my PC.
Dang, need to take the pci bracket off my GPU to paint it black .
maybe a good way for the mofset to get some cooling

They aren't terrible but they aren't great either. I heard they were 45 CFM. I suggest getting some better ones but you won't see a big difference.

ugh 45CFM sounds petty to me. Ill stick with those 75/87 CFM ones. The S-flex are the 1900rpm ones sorry. A little sound won't matter because I usually got music or games running and I don't sleep with my comp on.

I have all 120mm fans. Two exhaust on top of the case, one exhaust on rear of case, two intakes on front of case, and one intake on bottom. The top intake on the front of the case is screwed on with 2 screws to one of the plates for the optical drives.
oic. i've smiliar set up at u. 2 x 120mm top as exhaust, 1 x 120mm rear as exhaust, 2 x 120mm front as intake but 1 is at the orginal position with dust filter and the other 120 is just after the hdd bay opposite the psu. as intake too. i used cable ties to secure it. as illustrated below. i do not have any fan for the bottom but my side panel has 1 x 120mm as intake. so what's ur current system temp, core 0 and 1 temp, gpu temp and etc? care to share? thanks.

Newegg for $70, or Cooler Master store has it for $45 refurbished (basically new though).

By the way I don't think they come with black interior.

Honestly i think that bottom fan disrupts the airflow (or at least doesnt help too much). I think everyone with the CM690 are better off with mounting a 120mm fan somewhere in the 5,25" bays.
I have a HD4850, and until few days ago it was equipped with Accelero S1 with no fans, had it running 32oC IDLE, and some 50-ish oC LOAD... tried to improve that by adding the bottom fan (120mm one), and nothing happened, temps remained the same.
At the moment my fan configuration is:

Bottom Front: 120mm CM (1200rpm)
Top: 2x 140mm Scythe Kaze-Maru (1900rpm@12V, but i modded it to 7V thus spining at 1100RPM)
Back: 120mm CM (1200rpm)

My CPU has Silverstone FM-121B (800-2400rpm) pointing upwards, and my Accelero S1 has 2x 120mm CM fans (1200 rpm)...

Here's a couple of photos






Hope you guys like it...

P.S. don't mind the cables on the last photo, just moved, still haven't sorted out the TV cable, and the speakers. Lots of cables for those 5.1 speakers

EDIT: @Elson
If you put anything but ~1200rpm fans they're gonna generate much more noise, if you can live with that, then slap on some 3000rpm-ers and chill

Looks like your video card's a little bit heavy... when you need to hold it with tie wraps

Very nice paint job you got there BTW!!!
