By the way - and I apologize for this - I am still confused as to what the zip ties are for. I mean, what happens when the HDD cage is removed?
Floor of the case is intact, and what happens once the hdd cage is removed is that theres no more rivets to hold lower parts of 5,25" together. If you had a rivet gun everything could be exactly the same as with the HDD cage, but unfortunately i don't have a rivet gun so i had to use zip ties.
Heres a photo so you can see where the zipties are... also don't mind the chipped paint it only looks like the case is distorted but thats just cuz i couldn't be bothered to take a real camera and took the photo with my phone. The paint is obviously chipped cuz i painted the case 1st and then removed the HDD cage...



Cheers...

P.S. the HDD cage is only riveted to the case, not welded so if one has patience one can do the job flawlessly

P.S.2. and how do i post a youtube video in the forums?!?!

You took that with your camera phone?!?! Whoa! What phone do you have? I gotta get that phone! It takes really good pics!

Anyway, if I get ambitious enough, then I might look into a rivet gun since I am really anal. I don't know if I could stand having zip ties. But, if I could figure out how to get screws to attach and look clean, then I guess I would go for that instead. But you're using zip ties, so using screws must not be an option.

So, what's that blue thing at the bottom of the photo?

And finally, here's how to post a YouTube video (the order of events isn't that important):
  • Make sure the "Automatically embed media (requires automatic parsing of links in text to be on)." checkbox is checked. It's below the Submit and Reset buttons in the "Miscellaneous Options" section".
  • Copy/paste the URL into the message body.
  • Or, type the title of the video, then select it, then click the Insert Link button, then Copy/Paste the url there.
Believe it or not, that's all there is to it.
It's a computer!

I must be crazy or blind but i cant see "Automatically Embed Media" anywhere in "Miscellaneous Options" (i presume you were talking about User CP options area?). Is it possible that only overclocked accounts can post videos?

The blue thing is just a sticker that was on my Southbridge heatsink on my mobo (P5Q-E). I took it off, and voila it fits perfectly down there

You could use screws to tighten it down, you would just need really small screws that i didn't have at that time. Since its good with zipties i never got to replacing them with screws...

And the phone is Sony-Ericsson C902, got it a month ago (210 euros). Its really good, and the camera is 5mpix, autofocus, flash and all that mumbo-jumbo. It takes great photos outdoors...

edit:lolz just found those options under the post i'm writing... i'll try and post a video of my case now...

IT IS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Just wanted to post a video of my rig running my Kaze-Maru fans at 1900rpm ... Seriously this video doesn't give them justice, they sound much louder off the video. I had them on 1900rpm for the whole 10 minutes before i freaked out . After those then minutes i was like... no way, back to 5V my precious...

Also those stupid front panel meshes... i mounted them wrong cuz i was just putting a non led fan in my 4 in 3 module, and removing the front panel off of the module. I noticed that they are mounted wrong after i was done with video capture... So don't mind that, everything is in perfect order now

Yeah that's some noise you got there. Did you get that window from CM? I just went to their site and only saw a windowed panel for other models.

EDIT: BTW nice rig!

Nah, thats a custom window. 3mm thick transparent plexi, and car window moulding from a local autoshop. CM has a windowed side for CM, but it sucks big time. Looks like u have a boomerang shaped window


Looks lame if u ask me...

And tnx

I think it's kinda cool. Best thing is it leaves room for that side fan.

Side fan is obsolete once u already have 5 case fans and a good CPU cooler... Can't go lower than ambient

And dunno about you guys' CM690 but my side panel used to vibrate like crazy when i tried to mount fans on it (back in the days when i have just bought my 690)...
