    Yah, it's a 23 cm, I'm glad you guys think its a good idea, I was wondering if it would keep up with the 120's. I'm putting them all on a controller, so I hope so. My first loop, I'm all affluter.

    I'm just wondering how much it'll help, should be cool to try it with and without. Not sure if you are able to do that though.

    Just needs abit of trimming and sanding. Then it's either mesh or plastic :p

    Same method for all 'important' cuts:

    1) Draw the cut
    2) Go round with a scratch knife (makes a tiny groove)
    3) Go round with a dremel (make a bigger groove)
    4) Cut 2cm from edge with tinsnips
    5) Cut on the edge with tipsnips - where iam now
    6) Sand and file till smooth
    7) Spray and use

    Easy :)

    OK, I think that my case switch is over now. Due to vibrations of my CM690 and a '$35 freaken bargain' (thx pantherx12 :laugh:) I've got on Gigabyte Aurora 3D the decision was simple. :D

    Some basic photos for now (I have some shiat light right now). More photos of the insides are coming tomorrow I hope.

    And - in the end, there will be cake. :laugh:

    So let's start with the brushed alluminium front with a slight view on the side window:
    [​IMG]

    And these are some insides I've managed to get a decent photo of:
    [​IMG]

    I had to remove the hdd cage because HD5870 wouldn't fit in. Drives are installed in top 5.25" bays.
    Yup, my fans are running that fast lol :rolleyes:


    Oh noes, I almost forgot about the cake!!

    I'm making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.
    It's hard to overstate my satisfaction."

    Well got the rampage II gene today and i must say its a beauty! Its really small! i was impress on what it looked like in my case. i have encoundered some problems tho. My dual 120 rad will not fit inside of the case and my single 120 will fit on the back but you cannot take the side panel off (side of the rad blocks it) SO im going to have to mount my dual 120 RAD on the outside of the case and try to custom mount the the single rad but other than that, the motherboard looks and fits great inside my NZXT M59

    Noiseblocker XL1 Rev.3 - really good fans at very reasonable price! I bought three of them for the CM690 and now they're in the Aurora.

    It was delicious. :D But it's gone :cry:

    Thanks mate. CM690 II is near perfect IMO. Good luck and I hope we'll see some photos. :toast:

    Sleek looking case. I like the fact the front door opens the RIGHT way.

    Thanks mate. Yup, front door opens just right for me. The ability to switch them would be good though.

    I'm thinking about a cathode to light up the window... Hmmmmmmm... I have three blue LED fans from Gigabyte but don't have the place to put them (5.25" bays are filled with optical and HDDs).
    We'll see. :D

    Oh ok, I didn't realize you were in Argentina. I've only met about two or three members on here that are from South America. You, a Brazilian and one from Uruguay maybe? Not sure.
