    Default CM690 Rebuild

    So i have been using this case for a very long time & i am going to help it out.

    This whole top where the fans are is going to be removed

    the HDD storge is going to be removed and there are going to be two 140mm fans in the front instead of one

    bottom fan is going to get a cut out and same with the power supply intake fan

    the back is going to have a cut out for easy access to the back of the mobo for changeing the CPU coolers.

    I have two CoolerMaster 690RC Centurion Cases.
    Load them up with fans and they'll keep a PC pretty cool.
    Mine have been around here for a long, long time.

    So this is my idea, the front of the case and the top plastic pices may not go back on. I was messing around with the 3m carbon wrap and plexi glass clear and black. I think I'm going to layer 3 sheets of it. Black clear then black again. And on the clear sheet I'm going to inlay some led strips and rounded front sides and take away 3 of the 4 drive bays and make a custom hdd rack. Then on the top I'm going to use 2 buttons on/off reset with led built in and the a CMOS reset switch on the side or the case. Just some
    Ideas I have been thinking about any one have any outer ideas

    Default Re: CM690 Rebuild

    I knew a guy with a '55 T-Bird

    He painted it Pearl White and then added a very light Orange mist to the paint job. It was heavier along the edges and protrusions. I know it sounds weird, but that car was a show stopper. It was beautiful when the light hit it.

    A case may look good like that.
