Yes the r3 is the same with the 3 ch fan controller. I'm using a 6 ch fan controller for game / silent setup.
Mine folds with 2 470's @ 70 deg C so the air flow is good. I swapped the fractal fans out for akasa vipers (5 case / 2 cpu push pull).
OK time for some pictures, I got this finished late Friday night. I'm quite pleased with the build.
The case is very grown up no big sticky out flash in your face bits, nice and simple imo.
The front door is kept shut with a very positive magnet, on opening the door you have 2 5 1/2...
Anyone got any build pictures of the above?
Thinking about purchasing one, but i would like some user feedback.
Upgrading my case from an original 690. Would love a 700d but space is an issue.
Any help is much appreciated.
I have the following:
OCZ 4GB DDR3
q9550 @ 4GHz
Zotac 470 SLI
Thermaltake 850 Tough Power Modular
7x Akasa Viper 120mm
Looking for something with more room, Thinking about water @ some point in the future.
I would like black interior, quiet...
Thanx, It was in a cosmos s prior to this but you could not get the rails behind the mobo tray. And i hated it, just could not get along with the case. This was in the garage so i decided to paint it.
For the 690 i used an akasa 8 pin 12v extension. this runs up the back of the mobo tray...
IMO if you are going to do something. It is worth doing it right.
I could have just closed my eyes and chucked it in, but I would have known it was a pure rats nest inside. And it would have bothered me.
Some ppl may think it is sad, but it is something that i enjoy doing.
