@Aron Henderson
some pics would be great


@Fletcher
I bet that harmony is awesome remote... (had a few remotes, not Logi tho - too expensive for me). I personally have Logitech's Wireless DJ System... that one is great too, but its only for streaming your music wirelessly to your amplifier... bluetooth powered...

@Diesel Phreak
I had green (and blue) LED CM's (the ones that cs_maan linked) and i can tell you, those green ones are brighter and look beter imo. Altho i personally would like to have red ones

hey guys, im seriously considering buying this case for an upgrade. i have been using this Stacker for 2+ years now and im getting sick of a huge monster that isnt even fully connected and i have a couple questions from those who have the intel...

i have seen and can say for myself that cooling is great for this case, how can i make it better without making it sound like a jet engine?

also, what steps (tho cheap ones mind you) can be utilized (cool word) to make this case quieter?

finally, for those who have their PSUs oriented so the fan is sucking in wind from below the case, how much dust do you gather? also, how often would you recommend cleaning up the case?

You could get a fan controller and a few high or medium speed yate loons if you wanted. I have 3x140mm mediums and the rest are 120mm medium yates. I dial in the speed with a sunbeam rheobus.

Again with the fan controller. It'll help. Removing the "honeycomb" plastic cuts down on noise coming from the case. You could always consider more expensive (think noctua) quieter case fans. Silent fan mounts are also a very inexpensive option. Cutting the honeycomb is free. Cutting the fan grilles out is also free and effective.

I don't hardly notice any dust. With it pulling the air from underneath, it exhausts out the back. My case isn't on the floor, but I still clean (read that as air-dust) my case out one a week or so.

1. i have seen and can say for myself that cooling is great for this case, how can i make it better without making it sound like a jet engine?

2. also, what steps (tho cheap ones mind you) can be utilized (cool word) to make this case quieter?

3. finally, for those who have their PSUs oriented so the fan is sucking in wind from below the case, how much dust do you gather? also, how often would you recommend cleaning up the case?

1. For good airflow you can buy some high CFM fans, that may be loud, but with a fan controller will still push a lot of air when under volted and still be quiet. (That being said in the most basic of ways)

2. For making the case itself quieter, sound dampening foam can be bough for pretty cheap, around $20 for four sheets which should be enough for most cases unless its gigantic.

3. I haven't checked mine, but my case itself doesn't get very dusty at all, maybe because its on my desk, if your case is on the floor it will get dusty quickly. I've had mine for 2 months and its virtually dust free , so I'm assuming the PSU is too. As for cleaning the case, blast it with air compressor, or if you don't have one buy cans of compressed air. Hope this helps .

thanks both trogalicious and cs_maan

i havent ever used a fan controller before, but i have found a good quiet fan that is in my case now. the sunbeam controller looks great, but i can already tell its to much for the eyes. im looking to turn down the "brightness," so to speak, of my case, so ill be looking to rid of leds. ill check into the yate loons -always have heard good things about them-

yeah my computer has always rested on the ground and i live in a dusty house, i actually need to work on cleaning the case diligently.

cs_maan, can you find me a few links for good sound dampener?? i am definitely interested in it.

also, what can cut up the honeycomb metal? my gramps has a shop but i have no idea what i could use. -he has a huge air compressor tho

hmm....oh yeah i will have to find a new psu...one without the LED fan, and something that will have the power for a gtx 260 (future build). time to scour newegg

Look into a fan controller. It's super cheap, easy to hook up, and WELL worth it to quiet your machine down and have control over your fans.

Consider lifting the case, even if just a few inches from the ground. Use bricks, books, whatever if you must.. it'll make a LOT of difference.

Check performance-pc.com or just google "Auralex" it works wonders.

Simple wire cutters will work. I used metal shears. Dremel tools can do it. Utility shears.. etc. A nice sharp Stanley utility knife will work wonders as well.

Corsair HX520/620 if you want to go modular. TX750/850 if you don't need modularity. PC P&C/Antec are good choices too.

a wealth of info!! goodness sakes. *says to self* "i love helpful people"
-plus fan controllers always look cool on the front of cases imo
-lifting the case...hmm, wonder how i could engineer that...oh! could also find something to cover up the carpet underneath it! there is a ton of dirt in carpet if you dont own a kirby....
-auralex..hmmm cool
-wire cutter hand tools? really? wow sweet, then i will have to find some way to make the open fans on the front even look good... (i am definitely not a skilled modder)
-corsair makes some great products ill look them up

thanks so much!! i really should order that case tonight...

If you wanna save a few bucks too, you could look on the coolermaster store online. They will occasionally have refurbished 690's for about $50 bucks or so. The condition has always been almost identical to a new one. I know Newegg has it on sale for the moment, but it can be found for less than even the sale price I think. Great case.

There are tons of helpful people here. One day, I hope I can grow up and be one.
