Usually by removing the faceplate on your optical drive and using the material used in the case blanking panel (mesh in this case) to create a new faceplate.

There used to be a thread/guide, though I don't think its going to work with the CM690 due to the way the drive bay clips to the front panel and such, idk.

you can just take out the clips and stick it to the drive. you need heavy duty double sided tape like the one 3M sell. i think the color of the tape is gray. used it to stick my ghetto ram cooler and when i took out the fan the cellshock ram sink came w/ it. thats when i saw the D9GKX on my ram lol!

I took some pictures of my case, here they are!




(My fans are blue/uv so they kind of make the glow look purple in the pictures for some reason)

My next mod will definitely be a window mod, and I will be replacing my DVD drive soon.. My old black dvd drive failed so I have an old e-Machines one rite now in it. Any suggestions on were I could get a good window mod kit?

hmm I have bought that acrylic before.. What bit on the dremel do you use to cut the metal? When I used the dremel to cut out the fan grills I went threw several bits.

Im probably cutting my window tommarow. Kind of annoying with those fan grills that came stock on the case door. You basically have to cut around em.

Yeah, I think I will pick up some acrylic and some bits and do it tomorrow as well.

How can I attach the acrylic to the case? Double sided tape?

I don't even know why they put the two fans on the sides, I have a 120mm fan on every spot available in that case, and an 8 fan controller. After testing different fan configurations for a few hours I figured out that the two fans on the side running with the other fans actually raises temperature (maybe to disruption of airflow) in the case. The coolest fan configuration I could come up with is the bottom fan @100%, front fan @50%(for the HD), rear MB fan @100%, and the two top fans @100%. (rear fan and side fans off)
