    Was rushed during building and grabbed what was handy, had a friend's father who works with computers and had experience building them over to help troubleshoot after we had disassembled the build after we got no video feed off it at like 2am, turned out there weren't hdmi drivers available in the cards by default so we had taken it apart for nothing -_-

    My 932 is still going strong since release. I'm happy with it. It'll be hard letting her go if it ever came to it. May just retire her to a shelf when the time comes. lol.

    I finally switched out my cpu cooler from the Hyper z600 to a V8. I don't see any diff at all. I did add some 2 120mm fans on side of hdd rack to help suck air across hdd's from front fan and added a CM r4 green led fan in the drive bays for more air after I just got around to removing those plates. The air was whistling thru it and now its soo much more quieter. This case just keeps impressing me.

    I've moved on, I still have my stacker first gen for the NAS box cause it can hold 10TB, but the Storm Scout was just too small for me.

    Also those molex's are what came with the cards so I figured I would just use them.

    replaced the top 120MM to 140MM fan and removed the HDD cage from the bottom

    The result is :

    Hi Guys, hoping to be allowed to join the club !


    Just joined up here with TPU to get into some more serious overclocking etc after a few years of playing around with it myself.. (managed to get the i7-920's running at 3.4 Ghz, 70 Deg C @ 100 load already just today), and noticed your club thread.

    This machine (Win7x64-i7-2) is in the old faithful CM Centurion 590.

    Specs are i7-920 @ 3.41Ghz, Prolimatech Mega Shadow Deluxe CPU cooler, ATI Sapphire 6950, 6 x 2Gb 1333 RAM, Zalman ZM600 PSU and MSI X59-Pro-E mobo.

    My other i7-920 is in a "cheaper" gaming case (so I wont mention the brand...) - but actually has a perfect airflow, esp with the 200 mm fans side and top.

    The pic is abit orn'ry, but thought I would whip one in quickly. Will take some clearer, better shots when I am feeling better.

    Cheers, glad to be here,

    VeeBee

    EDIT:

    My apologies for the cable management mess (or LACK of Management)... only put that new Mobo in 3 days ago (after sitting in cupoard for 4 months) and swapped 2 x 4770's for the 6950 which arrived yesterday.

    The 590 doesn't have much room/ scope for concealing cables/ connections, but will be swapping to a CM GX750W PSU (also sitting in cupboard) in the next few days... (non-modular - means MESSIER !! - but hoping to get the 2 x 4770's running with the 6950 - mad BOINCER here - top 300 worldwide.)

    Hopefully the updated pics in the near future will earn "extra credit" for me !

    I was wondering what the best fan setup for the CM 690 II Advanced is with:

    Top: 2x140
    Bottom: 2x120
    Front 1x140
    Rear: 1x120
    Side: 2x140

    (Intake/outtake i mean)

    Don't you think that this is a little overkill (or overfan ) ?

    I know, its a lot of fans, but i still want to know what the best configuration is.

    I might choose not to install the bottom fans, cause of the dust etc.

    Top- Exhaust.
    Bottom- Intake.
    Front- Intake
    Rear- Exhaust.
    Side- Intake normally. Good for cooling GPUs. But I've had it as exhaust before.

    I would have to go with rad on this one as far as configuration.

    @ Rule-R - defintely as Radical Edward described... by having air moving towards upper-rear, you are just helping the natural flow of the heated air.
    Personally though, I would def have the side one as "intake" - apart from it pushing cool, fresh air onto your GPU, you are always better off having a slightly greater input (in cu/feet/min) than exhaust, otherwise the exhaust fans are simply labouring, trying to "vacuum" out the warm air.

    And as for over kill, if you have a decent GPU in there, and are o'clocking you CPU any decent amount, aside from really GOOD (and therefore sort of expensive) aftermarket coolers, plenty of air flow over/ through everything is a pretty good way to keep things cool

    I would recommend so many fans only if he have i7 E with air cooling and three GTX580 otherwise it is an overkill.

    i have something like 14 fans in my case, and its not overkill. more quiet fans is often the best solution, instead of a few noisy ones.

    The way I see it is... If there's a spot that's meant to have a fan mounted, then use it. :rockout:

    It is only my opinion , but if I would add more fans to my system it would be one intake on the bottom and on on the side for the CPU , and maybe another on the top .. And thats it.
