CM 690 II Adv Cooling problem

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
So I just finished building my new computer and yesterday I was gaming for a while on it and I wanted to check how the cooling and air circulation was doing in the case... When i opened the case up it was warm and so I have no idea what to do now..

The fans seem to be working except for the back one which seems to be extremely weak. and the intake fan on the front is extremly cold so I don't see the problem.

The cables in the case are almost hidden mostly (Bad but they are hidden) so I don't see that as a problem. The GPU (EVGA GTX 460) and CPU are both on stock, not overclocked.

The intake fan is connected to a molex pin and the other two fans are connected to mobo pins

Can someone suguest me what is going on? and how can I fix this.

In my old case I had one fan and it never got hot and it was a tiny case aswell

If you are using the fans that came with the case you might try changing them, the OE case fans are normally weak to begin with.

Need a lot more info. Are you certain that the front fan is intake and the rear fan is exhaust? What other fans do you have installed (top? side?). What are your systems specs? Have you actually observed the temps to see if there really is a heat issue? The ambient temp inside your case will always be much hotter than outside of it. On my last system, I was about 8C or so above the room temp. And that was with a CM690 I.

Don't think that buying something is the solution to your problem. Please post a picture of your internal system, then draw arrows to show which fans are intaking and exhausting. With this basic information people can give you tips.

- There may be hot spots
- There may be some fans not blowing in the right places

With support for 7 120mm fans, the CM 690 II has the space for cooling, you just have to set it up right.

Yes the front fan is intake and the rear is exhaust
Another fan was pre installed when i got the case, on the top, and it was intake aswell
System Specs:
Mobo- DG31PR
CPU- E7400 @ 2.80 Ghz (Stock)
Ram- 4 GB DDR2
GPU- GTX 460 (Stock)
PSU- 550W Ultra LSP

I don't know if there is a heat issue or not, but I also never experienced this before, so just to be on the safe side i made a thread, you know what I mean?

Top fan should be exhaust. On the CM690 I, I had the top fans as exhaust and the side fans as intake. You should also install Speedfan or a similar program to see your actual temps, or just look in the BIOS setup.

Ok I will change the top fan to exhaust and right now here is the screenshot of speedfan:



I'll upload another one at night when the computer has been on all day, right now it's only been on for an hour or so.

This is how i'm running mine. I have 2 Enermax Magma fans on the roof, one Magma on the exhaust, a Yate Loon on the floor, a stock CM fan on the side panel (using a high RPM one causes a noise as air passes over the metal grille), a Sharkoon on the front and another Sharkoon strapped to back of the HD cage (to make sure air gets through them).

It wouldn't hurt to improve your cable management a bit. The 4 pin power for the mother board can go behind at the bottom hole by the psu and come out on top. Use a twisty tie to wrap up the excess fan wire on the intel stock hsf as well as the back fan. As it is right now that is inhibiting air flow a bit.
