CM690 Unvidiafied

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I was bored late last night and was looking at my CM 690 Nvidia and started thinking I don't have a Nvidia GPU so why have a Nvidia edition case. So I took everything out and started to think on what to do here.

Here is what I'm starting with.



So I ended up cutting all of the fan grill off the case, took all plastic off and took the mesh grill off.




Here all the parts that are getting painted at some time today. (I hope)


The case, mesh grill and the green.



I will aslo be painting the trim on the Sentry 2 the same color as the mesh grill.



Here is what my computer looks like as I'm doing this, so the faster the the better.



Will also be painting the fan blades all the fans. Sorry no pictures yet, will take some before and aftter painting.

I wanted to start painting today, but got in the garage to start the wood stove and fiound I was out of firewood. So I did a few parts in my basement I had to stop there. The smell was getting to much, plus I also have snakes and lizards down in the basement so I had to stop.

I started with the mesh grill and the plastic bezel of the Sentry 2

Primer



White



I'm going to pick up some fire wood tomorrow to start on the case, the green plastic strps, pci covers and the fan blades. Will post pictures as I go tomorrow.

My batteries in my camera died so, I will poct pictures of them when they are charged. Also I'm thinking of painting my power supply (red right now) but was wondering if I should paint it white of flat black?

So I reassembled and did some cable management, I think it turned out pretty good. Here some pictures for you guys, enjoy.



I mounted the rad on the outside of the case with 2 Scythe SlipStream 1900RPM, one the inside of the case, one ouside for push/pull exhaust. Would I get better temp if I would use it as an intake rather then exhaust?



For cable management I cut one sata cable for teh optical drive, not going to used the other one, so why not. How my cable management?



The outside isn't done yet, still have to cut the side panel to fit a bigger plexi glass (thinking of clear or smoked). I also want to paint the inside of the side panels so you don't see the back one. The side panel just fit with the rad there, save me the trouble of cutting the side panel to fit around the rad.



EDIT: I still need to get some led for inside the case, I'm thinking of white, but the wife would like blue. I will be doing cable sleeving, paint the hard drives holders (white), paint the pci slot cover (white) may also be painting the psu (white or flat black).

Looks like you did a great job on it. I have almost the same paint scheme on mine except my side panels are white as well.
