Today I cut the segments out of the mobo tray and paint the bolts for the mesh that I got.
i wonder i could putt enough foam in to do any thing effective really. i mean where im i going to put it...
the top fans are in, a bottom fan is in kinda, i have a pretty big window, and a few modded front fans. really the only place would be, behind the motherboard tray and i need the space for all the fan wires 7 sata, cables, power, and ever thing else.

Now I have a single fan in the door (bottom door fan slot), blowing hot air out and no fan on the upper door slot.

The door fan and the rear exhaust are 120x38mm Panaflo mediums. Using them as exhausts, I've created negative pressure in the case. The case is sucking a good amount of cool air in from the top door fan grill, and the grill on the backside of the mobo, while the rear and side exhaust are expelling a lot of hot air.

Temps are WAY down versus trying to blow a lot of air into the case using fans.

Another happy negative pressure story.

the door fan should be a intake. as there is nothing to heat the air by the time it gets there. it helps cool gpu temps with fresh cold air on the card.

Yea that's what I thought as well. I had the lower fan blowing directly onto the 2 video cards...and the temps were spiking way too high. I'm guessing it was just blowing hot air from the vid cards back onto the cards, and possibly it was creating a positive pressure system.

Now the door fan is blowing out. It is located right next to the heat pipes on the vid cards, and sucking a substantial amount of heat off of them. They run much cooler now with the heat being wicked right off of them and out of the case.

Cool air is coming in passively from the top door slot, the grill on the backside of the mobo, and from the 2 intake fans I have (bottom of the case, and front of the case).

It's counter-intuitive, but the cards are staying much cooler now having a fan sucking the hot air off of them, than by blowing air in from outside directly onto them.

It makes sense. The video cards are by far the hottest things in the case. By using an exhaust fan right next to them, a ton of hot air is being immediately sucked out, instead of pushed back into the case where it can circulate around, and eventually find its way out elsewhere.

I personally haven't painted my case (bf did the last one for me) but I believe the process is sanding the case, using primer and letting it dry, then applying a coat of paint, let it dry then apply another coat and let it dry and then if you want, apply another coat of paint. The thicker the paint the more difficult it will be to chip it. If you have access to a rivet gun, you could de-rivet the case and sand each part individually. That would be the way to do it if you were wanting the paint job to be perfect. Afterwards just re-rivet the case and paint the rivets.

Yeah probably not a lot of room for the foam for you I have the standard 690 window so I want to put the foam around the edges of that window. Also want to put it on the bottom of the case and up the top. Having watercooling means not as many fans so I have a bit more room for the foam

coelacanth:

Your re-fanning was perfectly timed. I recently ordered a new GTX 260 (see my signature!), and I expect it to be delivered on either Monday or Tuesday, so I'm going to turn the side panel around so that it's an exhaust fan. I mean, I completely agree that it makes much more sense to use that fan to take the heat away rather than blow it around in the case only to be sucked through the heatsinks of the chipset and CPU air coolers.

I'm looking forward to experimenting! I have a prediction: while I once used to feel warm air coming out of the top of my CM 690 while watching movies or gaming, I predict that will no longer feel warm air thanks to the side panel taking the GPUs warm air out of the case.

Nice.

All the warm air comes out of the bottom of my case thanks to the slipstream pushing it through the radiator and out the fan grill. I moved my pc closer to my mouse pad so when it's cold I can use that heat to keep my hand warm while gaming LOL.

i didn't prime mine and it came out ok. i had another guy paint it kinda b/c it was to cold here to paint at the time.
i painted my gf's case my self and i would say just prime it and paint no sanding needed. mine the paint chips pretty easy hers doesn't chip as easy. if your painting it just a simi gloss black you can use a normal sharpie to touch it up if it scratches.

as for ordering paint online don't you have to pay for ground shipping and it costs more then going to your local hardware store.
