CM690 Top-cover Fancontrol

Recommended Posts

Cuz of lack of front bays I decided to mod my top-cover and insert a custom fancontroller.

I bought this controller and stripped it completely:

Took off the top-cover and cut out the plastic with a dremel:

The top and center:

Both sides cut out and inserted the controller backplate to c if it fits:

And now the holes, how R we goingto do that....:thinking::

Taped the old front to the case (first determained the position)Cuz it has the correct distances of the holes.

After measuring the hole size to drill the holes

Here we go...8 holes...4 fancontrol and 4 led holes:

I thought I was ready, but then the top couldn't close cuz of the plug at the back of the controller. So I had to cut a hole where the plug has to go through:

Protected the components for pieces of metal....

When the hole was done, I put everything together. Same way as I stripped the controller, but then the other way around wit hthe top-cover instead of the old controller front.

At the end it looks like this:

And guesse what....it's working very well 8)
