Since i had a HD3870 that totally bent on me, this time i decided to use some tie wraps, just to make sure... The bent on my new 4850 was not that bad, but i was afraid that if the card bent some more, the ramsinks would fall off (wich is exactly what happened with my 3870)... Imagine the weight that the card needs to carry:

- Accelero main heatsink
- 8x ramsinks
- 3x (or was it 4x) pwm heatsinks
- 2x 120mm fans, with additional weight after painting

Luckily 4850 from Palit that i have is a short PCB verision so it bends somewhat less than the long ones...

I had the same problem with my 2 9600gt ( especially with the one that as a TT Duorb on it... so the trick i used its olding it from the back using the power cable fixed on the rear of the MB tray... did the job pretty well!!!

i don't know how to mount a fan where the 5.25 drives go

secondly I wouldn't have a dust filter on it and a lot of dust would get inside (my room is real dusty)

Also I wouldn't have negative air pressure anymore

Don't 5,25" bay covers have some kind of a sponge on them when you buy the case? I think that could do quite well when it comes to dust...
Anyhow the case is not hermetically sealed so what ever you do you'll get dust inside...

I have a negative air pressure, and i too have to clean the case every 7-10 days... I mean its not that serious that it needs cleaning, its just that i like my case clean. Vacuum and dust every 10 days is what i do on a regular basis...

I have 3x exaust, and 1x intake (i just added a 2nd intake on the bottom just to test it out)... Seriously, once u buy a tightly sealed case then we can talk negative/positive pressure. When i clean up my case i find dust in the most amazing places u can imagine, like at the touching points of the case chasis and the side panels... One big thing that makes the dust come in is that little 70mm fan spot on the back of the mobo, its a pain in the neck, that one is :swearing:

At least thats my opinion...

P.S. everyone would probably get cooler temps by opening a window instead of placing a fan on the bottom of the case... In my case, bottom fan can drop my temps in the range of 1-2oC... while opening the window yields 3-5oC... OFC that only counts when its cold (under 20-22oC) outside...

If you have good dust covers for your fans, then positive pressure is the way to go (if we're only talking about dust here)... while negative will give you suction of air into the case from every possible opening, including screwholes that are screwless

And i think theres a few post way back in this thread that show how to mount a fan at the top-front position with the bottom dust cover... i'll see if i can find it and post a link. If you just switch bottom one to 5,25" you would still have negative pressure if thats what you want..

cheers

If you're talking about the top of the case:
just screw it in.

but...

If you're talking about the front/face of the case... in the 5.25 bays:
zip ties, a 4 in 3 device module, or build a fan holder. Others have used superglue.

So I finally decided to get my a signature link for the club and join! Had my CM 690 for about a year and love everything about it, the room, the airflow, the look. It's an amazing centerpiece to my collection of PC stuffs. I <3 MY 690!

I personally dont have one mounted , cuz i messed up my bottom dust mesh (tried something and i failed ), but im still working on it.. Check these out, nice job there by Flowtek. Maybe you can pm him to explain how he did it. I tried his way, but at the time i didnt have the patience to do it...

1) Flowtek - (just the bottom dust cover and some screwe if im right) http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...ml#post5152587

2) [FDG] Explosion - (requires some extra material if i can see correctly) http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...ml#post5244005
