CM 690 fans

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
If I got the CM 690, which fans would I need to add? I know it comes with 3 already installed, but would I need to put in a fan at the top? If I do put in a fan at the top, should I get a 120mm fan or 140mm fan? Should I get this Yate Loon Low Speed 140mm, this Yate Loon Low Speed 120mm , or a Yate Loon Med Speed (120mm or 140mm). Which would be the quietest with the best airflow? Any other cheaper fans to recommend? Would Yate Loons be okay?

Front: 120mm Blue LED fan x 1, 1200rpm 17dBA
Rear M/B Tray: 1 x 80mmx15mm (optional)
Top: Up to 2 x 120mm or 140mm fans (optional)
Side: Up to 2 x 120mm or 140mm fans (optional)
Bottom: 1 x 120mm fan (optional)
Rear: 1 x 120mm fan

I would recommend getting Scythe Slip Stream fans for best cooling, swell they are super quiet. Got 5 120mm in my Cosmos and I love them. OC at 3.8 and im idleing at 35*C all on air

I used the Yate Loon's 120mm blue LED high speed fans for the top, and in the front, I have two in the front as I modded a little and added one in the drive bay, a silverstone FM121 as rear case exhaust, and have two antec pro's on the side of the case, and the blue LED coolermaster fan on the bottom in front of the PSU.

I used the Loon's as they have high cfm and low cost! I'm not worried about sound as I use headphones anyway. You can look at my gallery if you want to see pics.

id suggest getting the medium or high speed fans. i use medium and high's for my gaming rigs and low speed for my server, and htpc.

yate loons are cost effective. 3 bux a fan that closely matches with scythe's. may be slightly lower than scythes but hey, saves ya money
