    I really like all the orange in your case, and the front fans shouldn't have much of an impact on the overall look of the case, especially since they're behind the front panel anyways.

    Thanks Jesus! Yeah these fans are really and I wouldn't put them anywhere else in my case. Well I was also thinking of getting Noctua's 140mm fans for the top exhaust because the stock ones are crap and they would still be hidden.

    I'd put a 200mm or something up there if you can fit it. Then again, I'd put 200mm+ fans everywhere I could fit them :laugh:

    EDIT: And I'm going to once I buy my new case sometime hopefully this month.
    EDIT2: Anybody know where I can get filters made for fans that big? ie: without buying a big sheet and cutting my own

    I just touched up some areas that i misses. its real easy on this case since its made of aluminum instead of steal. Its read light so i can pick it up and move it around

    Brandon, what paint do you use for the inside of cases? I'm thinking about painting my CM 690 this weekend and would like some advice.

    Well ran into some bad problems :( the Heatsink hits the PSU and bends it and i dont want to warp the board. so i took it all back apart and put the stock heatsink on it. this will work til i get a LOW profile heatsink or a that thuban heatsink.

    Will post pics once its finished

    *EDIT*
    On the paint i used a flat black as a base coat then i used a gloss black and did two coats of it.

    How much more clearance do you need? You could try to cut out some of the PSU's case.

    WOW guys im having issues :(

    Well my nice paintjob is going to hell due to the tight spaces to work it so my sleaving on the PSU cables are rubbing the paint off. i had to flip the PSU up to get the DVD drive in cause the cables come out on right into the Drive bays. Also since the evercool transformer 4 wont fit , i have had to resort to a stock cooler that is aluminum only :(. at first it was idling at 47 deg cel and i took the CPU out and smoothed out the thermal paste and cleaned the bottom of the heatsink and reset it. now the temps are about 5 deg cooler but still kinda hot in my opinion. Well i got it all together and while i was installing windows my blue cathodes just randomly shut off :(, so once i got windows install i shut it down and started messing with my cathode set. Come to find out the inverter finally took a crap so im out a dual 12inch cathode set :(. Oh and other thing that went wrong is that something was messed up and i got a BSOD 0x0000050 while instaling windows which i read it may be a memory problem, so i pop in my hirens boot disc and did a short 30 min memtest on each stick and they passed good so i dont know what its deal was at that time.

    Well as of now windows i installed and im installing drivers. i havnt checked the temps but what i want to do is do a stress test and get the idle and load temps in a screenie and post it. Im kinda bummed out on some things but i must say, the case is good but kinda flimsy quality but for 40$ (30$ After MIR and free ship) you cant beat it!

    PICTURES ON THERE WAY
