post #5891 of 19729
Hi,
Got this case about 3 weeks ago,
been reviewing it and decided this is the best bang for your buck.
kinda hard to find here, the distributors don't have it in stock.
So here it go,
4 Cooler Master Fan with led
Noctua fan for CPU and the bottom is the previous CPU Fan,
kinda breaks the color shceme but i am too cheap to throw it away.

Nice kaosou but you might want to remove or cut out those metal blanks for your bay drive fan so it can get more air.

hi doat,
i am not into cutting anything yet, maybe later.
the front fan is a temporary setup until i can devise something to hold it without cutting anything.
This case is perfect....

i made my CM690 into a BTX design tonight.....

It took me about 2hrs and looks good - only issues is i don't have any rivets and used meccano screws instead - therefor the side panels cannot go on - but it looks ok

Will get pics later when i finish rebuilding it (sleep time now though)

So now - looks a bit like this:

|DVD---PSU|
|FanC------|
|-------GFX|
|-------GFX|
|-----------|
|HDD-------|
|HDD-------|
|----CPU---|
|_________|

If that diagram makes sense?

Completely remove the PSU with all 'his' cables and then put it back, but before you put the PSU in its place, route all the cables through the hole in the bottom first, then you can bind cables together with some zipties that need to be routed to the same places, etc... and then tuck away any cables left by 'taping' them down. Closing the side panel might be a little tight, but it should not be much of a problem. The most fat cable would be the 24 Pin one as far as I know, and with it behind the motherboard tray my panel still closes but has a slight bump to it which in don't mind. The hole on the bottom might be smal but it should fit, no need to cut it bigger. Sturdy cables will form a bigger problem...

For the top I/O if you dont use the eSata for example just get rid of it by removing it or you could route it behind the drive bays along side the front of the case all the way down. Hope you see where I'm going. This is what I did and I dont have problems with it.

As for cathodes you could place one on the bottom of the case and one on the (inside) back of the case, on the left side of the 120mm fan. Also on Top off course... Most usuall places, but fans will leds that push more air and are more quiet then the stock fans will be more usefull in both ways of asthetics and functionality.

lol well you really cut around the screws on those blanks so the fan is clear you can use gate cutters or something like that.
