Any ideas on what I can do. Yer I know the cable management can be alot better. I'm gonna do that when I get my fan controller + fan cable extenders. But apart from that could someone give me ideas on how to improve this keeping in mind that SLI is not far off and an audio card. Cheers. Best thread for this case! Good work by all the contributors. I don't know anything else I can do because this is my first build, could i perhaps put a fan somewhere else etc. Thanks Again

Yeah I agree.....I intend to change the bottom fan with a blue led fan instead. Heard coolermaster now has a new fan with fan flow of 90CFM at 2500RPM. That's decent airflow.

Btw....how do i fill up the specs? You know....the "system" section at the bottom of each post?

Got it....thanks. I'm going to change my liquid cooling system to swiftech. Intend to cool the CPU, northbridge and graphic card together. The current CM S1 is not powerful enough to cool my CPU i think.....temperatures are still quite high, and I get occasional crashes.

Any feedbacks on swiftech? Izzit good? Wanted to opt for danger den but it's not available in Malaysia, not to mention expensive.

Alright fellas im looking for some assistance, ive been having some problems dunno if its case related or not but i did notice something so ill go over it all. My Pc seems too be ultra sensitive to esd like if i touch it and have it seems like even the slightest static it turns my monitor off. ive been doing some tracing and the grounds seem to be all good except for 1 ground. that is the case ground on the circuit board for the top usb ports and audio etc. Ive noticed there is no case ground path through the usb ports and usb plug. Granted if i used the headphone jacks and esata port there would be a ground path but i do not i only have the usb ports plugged in. Anyone think this may or may not be the problem ?? im probbaly just gonna solder a jumer wire in there, but im really looking to see why the hell its so damn sensitive.

Edit: Did the jumper still same issue, tried different outlets, same issue. It boils down to this if the usb board is plugged in the pc is iltra sensitive to esd even after mylittle worthless mod. So for now maybe forever im gonna leave the ports unplugged from the mobo and hope theres happy sailing. It kinda stinks i have to scrap them though it is a little more convinient. Still I am open to suggestions on what might be goin on with this. Thanks

Interior, only started, so hey, empty, i'm falling behind on new technology i reckon, may sell my q6600, or something... not sure, need to sort the fan cables, how would i extend it to reach the fan controller?

I dont think is necessary to open more holes in the CM690, with the two holes already there at the motherboard tray , i think already are enough , i dont like to open holes because the home made holes often are ugly ( not like nice made factory holes) with U shape borders to avoid cut cables and fingers

I think you have up side down that fan at the top or the case , that fan at the top must be exhaust , not intake


The top twins exhaust fans ( 140mm Yate Loon ) must be installed this way
