My favorite kludge:

The CPU fan broke so I added an 80mm fan!

macaroni box and duct tape
Note the paper clips working as an "adapter"



Had some fans wired right up to 12v. Drove me nuts. So I added a switch:

I'm thinking of taking one of my fan extension cables (or a molex extension cable) and sticking it through a hole in my case. Mount some spot cools onto my desk and I'm all set for this summer

As for my ghetto mod:

Yep, it's the huge wind tunnel on top of the video card! Bent cardboard and electric tape ftw
I actually needed it to make sure hot air coming off the top of the video card doesn't go into my first CPU heatsink fan and negate cooling; combined with the Spot Cool there, it actually cools the back a bit.


Darn closed corner fans... (due to the way the back fan mounts on the CM 690, if it's a closed corner.... well... there isn't much support for it). I had to mount the 80x15mm back fan with nothing but electrical tape
Thankfully, the way I arranged that electrical tape, it can still get some air from the sides
Still fits behind that side panel too

I'll bet some cable tie mounts would do just fine to secure that behind-the-MB fan.
