so these are much more quiet? But they only run @ 800 rpm, isn't this too slow for good airflow? Or will the difference be barely noticable...

And now that we're talking about this fan, how loud are the standard fans of the CM690II advanced i'll be getting? If they're also above 20dB, it's no use getting these quiet 800RPM but getting the SFF21's right?
the antec fans are louder than the CM fans. You could get away with using any of the cooler master fans for the side window. dosnt have to be spiffy..hell the case as it comes with out adding any fans flows very nice! If you want to save some money, get any budget fan you can at your local computer parts store

you mean true enough that the CM690II already has standard pretty loud fans so that i'd better go with the SFF21 20db fan or that I should get the more silent 800rpm scythe fans? (9dB)?

Can someone tell what's the current dB for the standard fans in the CM690II?

The fans that come with the case are a tad softer than the Antec fans, no idea what the dba is. they are rated at around 60CFM though. as for the 20db 800 rpm fans, i would get somthing a tad stronger/faster.

Do you mean the 9db 800 rpm fans? It are the slower, more silent ones, should I get one extra of these or a 20db 1200rpm?

one more question: the website of coolermaster says:

Front: 140 x 25 mm Blue LED fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 19 dBA

Rear: 120 mm fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 17 dBA

Top: 140 x 25 mm fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 19 dBA (supports 120 / 140 mm fan x 2)

Bottom: 120 mm fan x 2 (optional)

Left side: 120 / 140 mm fan x 2 (optional)

Right side: 80 x 15 mm x 1 (optional)

HDD cage: 120 mm fan x 1 (optional)

VGA holder: 80 x 15 mm fan x 1 (optional)

I tought the 80x15mm fan that you could add you mentioned was the one behind the CPU cooler? What does it have to do with the VGA? Or is this something else?

By findind this I also found the maximum noise level of the installed fans of 19dbA..

I also found out the the tricool fan (that I already have now in my case) has a minimum of 25dbA, so i might get two of these:
http://www.tones.be/shop_product.php?idx=105487

They're only 20dbA and they run @ 1200 rpm, I do like a quiet and cool system. Or do you think it's stupid to buy two of those and should I use my old tricool fan? I can't really imagine myself how 'loud' 25dBa is...

I also now saw on your picture you have two fans on your cpu cooler, does this help the cpu cool much more or is one fan more than sufficient enough?

I would get the 1200RPM fan for the side pannel. The CM case allows for use of 2 80*15mm fans, both are optional. One sits on the side pannel blowing in at the back of the CPU. The other 80*15mm fan fits into the VGA rentention bracket. lol this is gonna get funy. What that dose is hold up the heavy VGA cards, so they dont hang on the slot. when you use it it can restrict airflow, so they made it so you can fit it with an addition 80*15mm fan. I do not have this part, or fan installed. The bracket is currently being "Modded" to accept a nomral size fan. your choice on weather or not to use the bracket or not.

So conclusion:
get the CM690II Advanced, one extra 1200RPM fan of 20dbA for the side panel and use my old antec tricool fan to mount it on the place you mentioned?

Then get the Hyper 212 Plus CPU cooler with artic silver 5 cooling paste.

Only thing I can't find yet is an extra dust filter for my old Tricool Fan and the optional 1200RPM fan i'll buy for the side panel. At least it's not on the website...
post #48 of 51
A dust filter is a simple item. Im not sure about vendors you can use in your location, but they have the at microcenter state side. newegg stocks them. cheap too, i just spend less than a dollor each on 4 or 5 of them. and if you have troubble locating them, you dont NEED them. Right now I have 3 unfilters intake fans(filters in the mail) and it's not hurting anything, might have to blow out the dust more fequently, no biggy and yes, your list of stuff will blow you mind with cooldness on your stock cocked rig the case is amazing, and the cooler is great for the price!!

hehe, thanks a lot for your help! I'm gonna order it right now.
I also might order Arctic Silver Cleaner to remove the old thermal paste of my cpu heatsink. It costs 5 euros, is it worth it or is it easy to remove on an other easy way?
