  1. Two 140mm fans will fit, but I doubt that the 280mm radiator will.
  2. I'm looking forward to this build. More updates please
  3. Look for the latches - they're usually made from plastic so it might a bit hard to remove the covers when they're just new. Don't put too much force - some of the easily breaks.
  4. Place the bracket before installing the motherboard in your case. Ask someone for help if you're having difficulties on doing this on your own.
  5. I've used a Seidon 120V before, and I can see that you're mounting it wrong. If you're using the bracket for an Intel socket - make sure that the Intel inscription in the bracket is visible. You're currently mounting it for an AMD socket - that explains why the AMD inscription is visible. Flip the bracket to the other side and that'll fix your problem
  6. Two 140mm fans can fit on top but the 280mm radiator certainly can't. http://www.coolermaster.com/case/mid-tower-cm690-series/cm693/
  7. Holy Balls! The horror of liquid cooling I'm currently using a Swiftech H220 on my build. I can see that your graphics card sustained some damages as well. I hope it's still fine.
  8. USD 3000 may be just fine for those type of people who want to get in the first line of everything. But for me - I'll guess I stick at my budget and stick with my R9 280x for now. Also, I can see that we're not yet ready for the 4K resolution to be the standard; still 1080p for me.
  9. I'm currently using a 690 III. The stock 200mm front fan is similar to Megaflow, but without LEDs and probably not the same materials used. It's just an add-on - don't expect much about it. They probably have the same RPM. It looks like this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103178
  10. It's really nice to see an updated version of the 690 III that I saw from Jesse(http://community.coolermaster.com/index.php?/topic/10848-project-kuro-by-jesse-palacio/#entry107720). I already sent an e-mail to CM Support and a follow-up e-mail with the invoice and additional details needed. I'm excited to have those rubber grommets
  11. Woah. I just noticed that this has rubber grommets for the cable management holes. I also got this 690 III. Is it possible to just buy a set of grommets for the one I owned? Or do I really have to buy a new one?
  12. Just find a good pressure optimized fan to push cool air through the fins.
  13. I guess this dual 140 rads can't fit into the top mount of my 690III.
  14. Yes, you can lay it done horizontally. That's the reason why the Cooler Master badge can be rotated.
  15. No. I am currently not into this genre of games . Also, I am currently busy with my job, but I am seeing an officemate of mine hooked up into this e-sport stuff.
  16. Large side panel window but still hides the hard drive cages. Removable HDD cages - similar to the 690 III. I really love those . If possible - two or four SDD mounting points at the rear of the motherboard mount.
  17. I just watched Linus on the Cooler Master booth at CES 2014. So they got: *new accessories for the HAF Stacker *a prototype for a new HAF case with a huge window *360mm Glacer *new fans One notable thing that caught my attention is the fan that is similar to the CoolTech fan of Asus - that blows the air sideways. I think that this may be effective on low profile heatsinks with a large surface area. Your thoughts about this, guys?
  18. How about if the intake would be from the bottom - away from the mainboard? Air will first pass-through components and then through the fins of the cooler. The shroud should also isolate the air from leaking out in random areas of the cooler and focusing on the exhaust.
  19. I suggest a PSU that has a replaceable 140mm fan with a 3-pin or 4-pin PWM header. Improved heat dissipation fins that can guide the airflow inside the PSU given that it has a typical intake fan placed at its bottom and passively pushing it outwards. The cables bundled in the fully modular PSU are fully sleeved in black. It would also be great if you could sell accessories like fully sleeved power connectors.
  20. In my theory - the air that will be pushed through the memory modules would already be warm. I think that it's not really that effective to cool those. The cooling fins with a smaller surface area will not do much since it has only two heat pipes connected in it. IMO, the Evo would be more efficient than this . That purple thing right there is a parallel port which most of us doesn't use. But in cashiers and some computers in offices - these are still used
  21. 5 years warranty is more than enough. I think after that span of time - you already have a new PSU at hand, given that you're someone who buys high-end components such as a 80 Plus Platinum PSU. Lifetime is over kill. This product is not a tupperware
  22. It catches my eyes a little bit. But I rarely play my PS Emulator on my Android device - the only app that convinces me to use a physical controller.
  23. Cool I'm looking forward into your new designs
