Re: Cooler Master CM 690 II Mod : Help?


Am still on the hunt for a good design. I might have to buy some of the mesh too if I have to redesign everything.

Kudos!! That's the way to go.
Even if you can't use Photoshop make several designs like this and finalize on something and then set about executing it.

First reps given.

PS that's a really nice sketch. Shows that you have skillful hands.

Thanks Bro! Drew that in office Sorry for the red ink though.

Now it comes to the tough part : The CM Storm logo in mid, and the two 120 MM fans to accommodate. I am thinking of cutting a metal plate according to fan specs and screwing it to front panel.

For the CM Storm logo, already I've hit a roadblock. There are no good laser etching places in Kolkata, so my options are to get a sticker (that'd not be good ) or hand draw it on the acrylic. I am thinking of smoked acrylic and white color.

Third, suggest me some good white LED fans. I saw Overclock3D guys suggest a TRON mod to the bitfenix shinobi, and the suggestion was awesome, don't know how it'd go for the CM 690 II though. He told to attach LED strips by two sides and top of the case, outlining it.

Anyways, I will add more sketches tomorrow. Thanks for the rep, gives me that extra VROOM

Cheers,
Chiron

@mav2000 got the ROG logo done on your rig in acrylic. Have a chat with him. If there are more designs to be cut out (I want one or two done too) then we can give it all together and get it done.

Xigmatek had made some decent white LED fans. Corsair 400Rs come with white ones. If you can get someone to sell em off for colors they'd prefer you could trade. Speak to @gadzetz he may have some white LED fans.

I took a look at my case and I doubt the 2x 120 mm fans will leave enough space for the Storm logo to be large enough to be clearly visible.

Re: Cooler Master CM 690 II Mod : Help?

@krashnburn I checked with mav but he said he doesn't know anyone in Kol

What to do bro? btw, I mailed MNPCTECH a couple of days back, and they replied that their hands were full till March :O

But I guess I'll go bankrupt if I start importing everything. Also, I saw Antec Eleven hundred and liked it's minimalistic design. Didn't know it was a full tower until I checked the reviews!!! And the case is not available in India.

What to do? Suggestions?

Re: Cooler Master CM 690 II Mod : Help?

If this is your first mod don't buy a new case for it.

Don't bother reaching out to MNPC you will not only go bankrupt, you will have pawn your kidneys too.

Ask Mav for the reference of the guy who did the work for him in Bangalore. Once it is done, we can ship it to you to Kolkatta. How? - we will figure that out later.

Re: Cooler Master CM 690 II Mod : Help?

Great, will do. Let me ask him.

Alright, while I get the info from him, I have thought of another few designs.

1.How about a Temjin like design? 3 fans at the side and the top half replaced by acrylic? Will post some pics later tonight or tomorrow.
2.If somehow I can outline the case with LED strips/really thin white CCFL, giving the case a TRON themed look (would be awesome if someone can pull this off!)

3.After seeing IAMXTREME's mod I am also thinking of getting one logo done like that. Maybe an acrylic box (with smoked acrylic and custom etching/paint job).

Let me know your thoughts.

Btw, where did vicky go?

Re: Cooler Master CM 690 II Mod : Help?

I found one listing of this in OLX from April 2011
Have written to that person, lets see if we are lucky (very slim chance)
Else we will have to buy it from that website or similar ones
