post #3371 of 19729
With regards to the dust filter, i cut mine out the front and saw a 4-5 degree celcius drop in my HDD temps not to mention i am running a 2400 RPM Enermax on the front. So cutting the filter out helped a lot, but now i am stuck with the ultimate question, do i rather buy 5 x Lian Li 140mm stock black fans and put a UV light (red) in my case, or do i buy the 1200RPM CM fans and then wont need the UV light? What would be easier but still get good airflow, as i am currently running 3 x stock CM fans and the rest are 2000RPM Thermaltakes and then 1 x Enermax at 2400RPM , with a fan controller on the high speed fans. This fan situation is a bit confusing, are the 140mm Lian Li fans really that good? Gonna go start cutting out mesh etc now when i get home, will put pics of my rig and also gonna pick up this (COOLERMASTER 4 IN 3 DEVICE MODULE).

The idea is that a 140 moves more air per RPM. This gives you the option to run at full speed and move a heck lot of air or you can cut down on the RPMs quieting your machine but keeping the same amount of airflow as your stock 120s. At least that's the idea... I'm not sure on the quality of the Lian Li fans, but if they're anything like their cases they should be quite nice. Perhaps another member has more to add...

Pardon my correction but I think you mean to say "red CC (cold cathode) light". An UV (ultra violet) light, which is one type of CC light, is the one that emits the dark purple light that makes some things appear to glow.

Hi fellow CM690'ers I'm new to the forums, and I've just bought my CM 690 today. I haven't modded anything yet aside from cutting out the honeycomb grill and 2 metal holes on the top panel with a metal cutter.. too bad I don't have a dremel to smooth out the jagged edges.. oh well, they won't be seen anyway.

I need advise regarding what fans would you guys recommend I put in my new case.

Here's a picture of what I plan to do:

-got the picture from google

White numbers are intake while Red numbers are exhaust

Can you guys tell me what fans I could put on number 1-6?

I currently have:
2 120mm Cooler Master Long Life Fan w/ LED http://www.coolermaster.com/products...ate=36&id=4410
1 120mm Scythe Slipstream
2 120mm Cooler Master stock fans (that came with the case)
1 120mm Cooler Master led fan (that came with the case)

I'm thinking of placing 2 120mm AC Ryan "smoke black" fans at the top panel to illuminate the case, are these reliable? Thanks!
post #3375 of 19729
I would get rid of all those fans and get some kaze s flex or high speed yates for 2-6 and a 2k kaze master or undervolted 3k delta/san for 1.

A good fan at 1 cools nb and cpu down by 5-10 C

Hey guys, remmember i said im gonna get my rig straight, and sort out the cabling IN and AROUND the case...

Well i did a bit more. Ripped everything from my case and redid the whole thing again, also finished my stealthed drive mod, and moved my CPU fan potentiometer on top of my case (dismantled Silverstone panel that came with it). Removed the HDD tray, and moved my HDD to 5,25" area... I couldn't find elastic rope (to mount my HDD) so its just one-screw mounted in the 5,25". Also what remains to be done is to install a fan into my 5,25" area so it will cool my HDD and supply the top of the case with fresh air...

I'll post a few photos here, if you want to see all (45 that i've uploaded) follow the link in my signature... or click HERE

Here it is:

Insides:


Window side:


Top area (CPU fan knob, and stealthed DVD button):


Stealthed DVD drive (not entirely finished, needs some foam around the door to make it more silent):


Stickers are goooood :


And finally the whole work area (damnit, i talked to my supplier and they informed me that my Logitech Cordless Desktop Wave won't get here until tuesday so i might snap one more photo of my desk area once it gets here):


Hope you guys like it.

P.S. I share my room with my sister, so if you see some #@$%@, dont think im gay

hey guys, if someone could be real helpful i need..umm...the helps

i need the exact dimensions/measurements of each side of the case (including where the fan holes are [dont need every exact dot])

and the dimensions for the top and front. including where the buttons/switches etc are.

reason being i am already brainstorming on the art (my art) that i want to pain all over the case. i might not end up being subtle, this could be a showcase!!!

umm...what else, oh yeah!! for the side panel (the main one that opens up to the mobo, could you also show me the distance from the bottom of the panel to the bottom edge of the mobo, and also the distance from the right edge of the panel to the right most edge of the motherboard.

this will be greatly appreciated!!!!

edit: btw miloshs, AWESOME CASE!! and very clean gj
post #3379 of 19729
Alright, I bought a jigsaw, (very impulsive purchase)....so now I'm ordering a window, and I'm getting rid of the regular green on the NV690, and I'm either putting a UV green window, or a regular clear one....decisions decisions. I also moved the side fan to the 5.25 bays....and now dust gathers on the front of the case , I must think of a better place to put it...maybe further from the front of the panel and closer to the CPU fan.
Ideas anyone, on both subjects?

Also, loop0001, when I get come home a little later I'll see if I can pull that info from somewhere if anyone doesn't beat me to it.

@miloshs: Your case looks awesome, very clean! And with a non-modular psu, no less! Cleaver thinking with the foam. Any chance of a dark shot? - I'm hungry for more.

Nice work!

@loop0001: If nobody else is able to, I'll get you some dimensions by tomorrow. Metric or imperial?
