maybe for you, my temps dropped when I put the top front fan in. If it's such a bad idea, why does this lovely contraption even exist?

I thought you meant the top fan that was closer to the front

I actually moved my side fan as a front fan last night, I used the zip tie trick to hold the mesh on to the side panel. Don't know I'm going to get the zip ties off if I need to lol.

Temps for me dropped about 1C to 2C, not huge but I bet its better under load which I haven't tested yet. Hopefully the front dust filters don't get too dirty.

Well it's clearly gonna be better because it's blowing towards the cpu fan.

Although the difference is very small from what I've seen from your temps. I'll just stick with what I have.

Temps after 30min of tf2:

CPU core 0 -> 45'C
CPU core 1 -> 39'C
GPU -> 53'C
HDD 1 -> 48'C
HDD 2 -> 42'C

Not sure I'd use a 30 minute stretch of TF2 as much of a temperature benchmark. IBT/Orthos/OCCT.. sure.. even running 24 hours of F@H.

Yeah but, notice the temperature of the motherboard.... Im not saying that difference between 34oC and 38oC is something (cuz either of those is acceptable temp).

I think it always best to test out what works best for your case. I personally like it the way i showed before...

Anyhow... can anybody share a photo of CM690 with HDD bay removed? I'm seriously thinking on removing it...

You thinking of doing this to improve airflow? Might be a good idea but how to mount the hard drive in the 5.25 bays.

I can't remember where but I've seen a 690 mod that involved turning the drive cage 90 degrees. I'll try to dig it up when I get home in a couple of hours.

I don't use stress tests because my temps never reach that high while gaming.

Even after a few hours of a modern game like fallout 3 and my cpu temps are < 50 but with a stress test they 60'C
