My Imagination? Cooler Master 690 fans loud? - Page 2

Except he is on stock, while you have a heatsink that favors horizontal airflow from front to back. He will most likely see an increase in temps since the stock faces the side panel.

I suggest removing the grill if you want to stop the noise, otherwise you can either replace it with an 800rpm fan or remove it altogether. I favour a cheap, blue led, low-speed fan just for the looks.

Thanks for all the suggestions...

Here's an update...I removed the 120mm side fan and attached it to my vertical facing Thermalright Ultra-120 EXTREME. The system is MUCH quieter and the Q6700 CPU temps have dropped about 3-4C degrees.

I've read all the pages on the "Air cooling for dummies" thread and have a better understanding on the type of fans I need...I think!? Though I'll take suggestions for sure!

I still would like to replace all fans and cut all grills..in a couple of weeks after I get a couple of photo jobs out the door.

This is my first build ever and the case was really easy to work with. Guess I'm part of the CM 690 club and didn't even realize it!

Best,

John V.

Yate Loons are great for low noise and good airflow. It's what I use, and I love them. A fan controller and a High Speed Yate Loon is pretty much the best you can get.

Thanks pow3rtr1p!

Quick questions from a first time builder.

I see fans that are rated with different speeds like low, medium, and high. Would I buy all high speed fans then dial them down with a fan controller or are there certain applications for the slower fans?

I haven't overclocked yet but I'm not going to go too crazy with overclocking the Q6700...in the 3.4-7GHz range. With that in mind would I use a High Speed Fan on the Thermalright Ultra-120 EXTREME?

Many thanks,

John V

LOL @ the 7ghz range

Basically, if you undervolt the high speed fans, you will get them at low speed and benefit from the lessened noise. Loons are the cheaper root for undervolting, and Ultra Kazes are the next step up. The Ultra Kazes would let you have more power, but let you also have more airflow at lower voltages, or the same airflow at less noise than the Loons.

For the TRUE, a 38mm-thick fan with over 80cfm is highly recommended.

For a fan controller, I reccommend the Sunbeam Rheobus for 4 fans, or the Rheobus Extreme for 6 fans. Both come in black or silver.

OK for the case fans I think I'm going with the Scythe KAZE-JYUNI "SLIP STREAM" 120mm Case Fans ...any objections?

Also what fan speed should I get? In my Coolermaster RC-690 I'd like to place two upfront in the grill, one on bottom, one in back and two on top.

I've read the above fans aren't good for tight finned coolers like my Thermalright Ultra-120 EXTREME so I'm open for suggestions! If I'm wrong...tell me!

yea the kaze arent as good as yate loons, and they arent as good as the good scythe sflex fans which in turn arent as good as the noctua fans(they also cost more as you move thru that sentance too).

really bro you need to cut away the plastic honey comb stuff and the grills from your fan mounts, it makes a big difference.

if you put a fan on the side you do need to make sure its tight to the panel and the panel is also closed tight to the case, you can bend the catches on the front of the panel to do this

I had to do the same thing. my 690 side fan was loud because of the dumb honeycomb grills on it, you need to cut it out and replace with these http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811999204

Go to Home Depot or some sort of hardware store.. and get tiny little Rubber seals from like the Plumming department.. little round ones.. and put those between the screws.. I had them already at my house.. and I used those on my CM 690's side panel. and I don't hear a thing.. it's perfect.. They work much better than some little gromet thats supposed to be a spacer.. spacers don't really work that well. but these rubber o rings sure do.. trust me try it..

Has anyone tried putting a 80mm low profile fan on the backside of the Mobo tray, thats a feature I've rarely seen and our CM 690's have it.. I have not tried to add a fan there yet.. but I'm hopin to try that next..

edit* oh and MercChris could you possibly take a picture of that side pannel with that new generic Fan grill you added from the post above, I wanna see how it looks....

Thanks!

Geez I'm thick...or at least my reading comprehension is crap. I asked two or three times what fan speed I should get and both Adrienspawn and pow3rtr1p answered with "high speed fans"! Crud...thanks!

Anyway...

I was basing my fan selection on this fan shoot out with the Scythe "SLIP STREAM" fans and others. In the review they recommend them over the Yate Loons...so I thought I'd go with the "SLIP STREAM". But they are pricey when compared to the Yates. If you think the Yates are good enough for me I'll go with them and save a few bucks?

I'm not a gamer but a very heavy Photoshop/Lightroom user, at times processing 2000 images (wedding) at a shot.

Thanks!
