Good to see your 690II finally GN.

I might even do a few cuts on my other 690II tomorrow as well smile.gif

I've collected a few bits and pieces for your old TJO8-E biggrin.gif

Thought that I may as well post my 690 up.

I actually own two HD 6950's, but one is currently out of service due to overheating issues. (I'm buying it a new 3rd party cooler) You can probably see the two stray PCI-E cables.

My rig isn't looking it's best, I was going to sleeve my psu, but I honestly can't be bothered, even though I have all the tools and the sleeving. I might just buy a 24pin sleeved extension.

I'm replacing all the fans soon with Cougar fans. I also plan to give my rig a good cleanup (remove dust).

Something about builds being mostly black make me just think of Batman thumb.gif

Very stealthy like.

I totally agree, sleeving is a waste when you look how cheap extensions are. I have Bitfenix 4x 6 pin + 1x 24 pin extensions for my "current" temp build, which took me about 5 min to buy and cost less then having all the sleeving bit n pieces shipped to me.

hi...

is there any chance to mount a 38mm thick fan onto the lower front intake with the HDD cage still attached to the 692 (I mean the whole 6 hdd cage)?

By my rough measuring it should just fit, it will be blooming tight. You can mount one fan on the fron, and one fan on the inside of HDD rack, this should give plenty of air flow I thought.

it's really embarrassing since I already had this case for ~2 years and I can't still mount a 38mm thick PAPST on it doh.gif
I guess I need to try harder.


@Constantine85
did you mount the fan first, or the cage first (I mean without dismantling the lower hdd cage first)?

You say They are cheap... Where are you getting them from? Up here in Canuck land were looking for some, but they are around 10$ per connector locally... a little over the top... no?
