I should say why you would choose this brand are you IceQ4
Manufacturers should be considered

Are thin profile IDE cables good?

My i7 @ 3.66ghz overclock 1.128v undervolted works good!

Okay, so all the major components have finally arrived today! I am only missing one or two fans. I am going to start building this weekend!

So back on the topic of airflow discussion! I did a quick diagram in PS to represent two possible ways in which I will set up the fans in a stock CM 690. Which one would you recommend if the case is placed in a wooden floor environment with moderate monthly dust build-up. From this: http://www.silverstonetek.com/tech/w...e.php?area=usa, it appears that having positive air pressure is best, but I am unsure whether the information is biased or not.


Here is a list of the fans that I will be potentially using (all will be controlled via. the Sunbeam Rheobus):
2x stock CM 120mm - unknown CFM
1x stock CM blue led 120mm - unknown CFM
2x Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm - 1900rpm @ 41.3dba with 104.5 CFM
1x Yate Loon blue led 120mm - 2400rpm @ 40dba with 88 CFM
*does anyone happen to know the specs of the stock fans that come with the CM 690?


Labels:
A: Hard drive
B: HD4850
C: Xiggy
1-7: Fans


TYPE 1:

1. Xiggy's stock fan
2. stock CM 120mm
3. Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm
4. stock CM 120mm
5. Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm (zip-tied)
6. Yate Loon blue led 120mm
7. stock CM blue led 120mm (zip-tied)


TYPE 2:

1. Xiggy's stock fan
2. stock CM 120mm
3. Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm
4. stock CM 120mm
5. Scythe Kaze Maru 140mm (zip-tied)
6. Yate Loon blue led 120mm
7. stock CM blue led 120mm

*note:
The reason why I placed one Scythe as an intake and the other as an output instead of having both as output is because that way, I have control whether the system will be a negative or positive pressure.system.



My question regarding TYPE 1 is...
- Although it is a fact that heat rises, if #5 is setup that way to blow air towards the memory and the cpu heatsink, should I change the Xiggy's fan direction to blow towards the back exhaust instead?
- Will the #7 fan be able to draw the fresh air from #6, since it is placed right up against the HDD cage?

For TYPE 2...
- By having #7 set up at the bottom, will it provide better airflow than #7's placement in TYPE 1, considering how the bottom placement has direct access to outside fresh air? (this is assuming that #6's fresh air is lost blowing towards the HDDs)

And lastly, a general question...
- Should I seal the side fan's openings with tin foil so that the heat will be directed out through the exhaust fans?


Remember, the environment is a wooden floor with only moderate monthly dust build-up!
So what are your opinions on this?

I think you should add another scenario in there...

Xiggy facing backwards with
2: Scythe kaze maru
5: scythe kaze maru
3: stock cm fan
4: stock cm fan

or even a kaze maru on the xiggy, and use the xiggy stock fan in #5...

@T3h_Ch33z_Muncha
When you say Xiggy facing backwards, do you mean Xiggy + its fan blowing towards the back? And if heat rises upwards, why do you suggest a stronger horizontal pull in airflow rather than vertical?

I just tested, the Scythe 140mm will not fit in the back, but it will JUST fit in the DVD bay. And WOW is it loud...hopefully my fan controller will be able to tame this beast.

ahh yes forgot the back was a 120 only... in any case, thermal performance should increase ~2c with a quad core and a xiggy faced at the back. However, with more powerful fans on top, i think you would get better temps with it facing the top.

I have a side panel with only 1 fan , intake to video.
Seems to work just fine.
