i dropped around 3°C with all the wires to the sides. But youve got stock cpu cooling so if you would like to drop more just buy some aftermarket stuff...
anyways, welcome

be aware using a different side fan may not fix the buzzing, as that's created by the side panel vibrating against the case (because there's a fan there obviously).

Anyone have any ideas how I could best use the HX850 from Corsair with my stock unmodded CM690? The HX850 takes away more than half of the hole on the motherboard tray...right next to the PSU...

Also, the PSU goes over the area made for the PSU (on the bottom), which means that the fan is sucking up air from an area where there is no grill...

I can still send the PSU back, so would it best to send it back and get an HX620 then? I've seen pictures of the HX520/HX620 in this thread and it fits perfectly...

Also, if I want to add a fan to the bottom of the case, would I need to remove the dust filter? The holes for the screws are not aligned properly...

put cables through hole before putting PSU in - it will still be fine with the fan - it will still suck what it needs from that PSU hole provided as the fan still covers some of the hole.....

Should be fine if you can fit the cables through.....

Else - direct swap lol

That's what I did and the problem is I can't fit the cables in. There is just so little space left by the hole. It is either I only put the 24pin ATX cable in OR I put all other cables EXCEPT the 24pin ATX cable...I would like to put ALL cables through there...

Haha, direct swap - Germany-Australia...

With your rig, you could easily get away with the HX520W and less. I mean, even the HX520W would be overkill for what you have right now. So yeah, it would be better to get the HX520W.

I suggested the HX620 because I want to be somewhat future proof...so that I don't always have to buy new parts...you know what I mean? I also want to to be able to run the new line of video cards coming out later this year...

I bet that you'll be able to run them with the HX520W. However, I have to admit that I wish the logo on the HX520W were red - or even blue. Oh well. At least it fits really nicely.

The price difference between the HX520 and the HX620 is only 15€, so I honestly do not see a reason why I should NOT choose it. At least I should be set for a few years, unless I have been mistaken.

Oh, well then yeah: get the HX620. It will cover you for at least 1-2 years for damn sure - unless you decide to Crossfire or SLI some top-of-the-line DX 11 cards. I'm guessing that they together will need a bit more than the HX620W can provide.
