Probably it would be a good start to greet everyone reading this post, from Slovenia. Summer is here and I have too much time, therefore I decided to mod(again) mine CM 690 II, that strongest way that I can be proud on him(not it). I have been planning this for one month, though I'm not 100% what will it became. Goal is to build something different from builds that u are used to, aka black and red themes. There will be much more colours, but mainly white. And black.

14-4


Hardware inside him is going to be:
i5 4570

Biostar Z87X Hi-Fi 3D

4GB G.skill (1600(CL9) + some sticks on which says 2x8GB

Samsung 840 250GB

WD Caviar Green 2TB

Club 3D 280x RoyalQueen

Lepa B800

CM 690 Advanced B&W

Yes, nothing tempting but good enough. U agree?

I already did some major mods like painted case with snowy white:

ZZZA6123

ZZZA6126

Installed Motherboard and PSU + removed HDD cage:

ZZZA6222

Then I recycled some very thin aluminum panel and made first PSU shroud, but decided to make better one and shroud for DVD 5.25" bays.

14-1-3

ZZZA6156

14-1-2

14-5

Then i got idea how to mount an SSD, with motherboard standoofs.

14-2

Final look of shrouds, very pleased with results. Its exactly like how I dreamed it would be smile.gif I guess thats the most important.

14-6

14-9

New GPU, sadly my Alphacool NexXxos 7950/7970 V2 doesn't fit on reference 7970's.

14-1

14-3

Now I am waiting for sleevings smile.gif

Have a colorful day.
