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 should be able to get it in there while having the bottom cage intact. There might be enough room while taking the front bezel off the case (need to anyways to screw the fan in) If not, its only a 5 minute install still.. disconnect HDDs or SSDs .. slide out the drawers and remove the front part of the drive cage. no need to remove the rear. Install fan, cage and drives.. I will ask.. is there any way you can avoid having the lower part of the drive cage? How many drawers are you using? You will significantly improve airflow in the case if you remove the drive cage. If you cannot avoid it (if you have 3-4 slots used on the drive cage, than install another fan on the rear part of the drive cage OR install on on the bottom of the case to blow inwards. It will improve heat dissipation by blowing into the GPU and across the mobo.. and out the top.
Many schools of though on case airflow. Let me know if you have trouble. thumb.gif

I have seen iandroo around the traps, they should get back to you soon.

In their defense as well, to become an OP is not a two or three day happening, it has to be a long time commitment.

BUT it feels fantastic to be able to give back to so many thumb.gif

I enjoy helping those and being able to run such a fine thread as this one. I ran a club on Facebook for a while that was all about computers and reviews of the newest products and such. Questions and Feedback were commonly posted along with words of wisdom and lots of photos.
I initially contacted months back and never got a reply. No worries though, I hope to hear back soon. biggrin.gif

Guys, I will be getting a new beast 120mm fan soon that will replace my current dual ty-140 Silver Arrow config and leave me with two spare 140mm fans for my case!

I was thinking of using those as front intakes, one in the 5.25 bay and two in the lower intake positions...any ideas?
Will those fit there?

Only a 120mm will fit in the 5.25 Bays. I did that with my parent's computer. I'm not sure if a 140 will fit on the back of the bays. I haven't tried.

I know on a 692 a 140 can fit on the front face -bottom area

Yeah...same case cm 690 II. I'll put the first ty-140 as a high mid case fan and the other one as a front lower intake. Doubt I can do better than that.
