My coolermaster Centurion 5 isnt handleing my new parts well, constantly the 6400 idel is 47C and I did reapply AS5, and under load i see near 70C. So i think an 80 and a 120mm are just to little, plus the front panel got damamged when I moved the mesh has a v in it at the top. How would this case do you think to improve my airflow, it has a spot to mount 2 top 120mm fans also.

also does anyone have experince with lian li are they good for cable management

Thats actually an extremely nice case. Didn't even know that model was around. If you had the 2 top fans I can see it cooling pretty well.

I've got the CM 690, and it's an awesome case. The fan placement on the Lian Li is exactly the same. The only difference is the clear panel on the side. I plan to do this myself on my case when I get some new tool bits and rubber framing.

I've taken the liberty of getting fans for all of the places possible for my case, and it cools like no one's business. I have 1 140mm on the lower side panel and a 120mm on the top. Another 120mm for intake on the bottom center of the case, one in front (in front of the HDDs), and three exhausts on the top and upper back. And one tiny 80x15mm fan behind the motherboard that exhausts heat as well.

Lately, I've been hitting well into the 28c temps for my CPU, and my video cards are sitting at around 35-36c idle. With full load, my CPU peaked at around 40-43c and my SLi video cards hit about 43-47c. I'm also using the Zalman 9500 for my CPU the thing is awesome. The 140mm fan blowing directly from the side panel on to my video cards does an awesome cooling job as well.

They actually have the CM 690 on sale (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119137) for $64.99 and with the MIR, it's down to $39.99! I got it as a Pre-Black Friday email. :)

well the mounting kit for the top fans needs 4 gromets 2 per fan these gromets are also in the removable HD cage and I only have 1 HD and I have 2 black 120mm fans though im prolly just gonna order me 3 green LED fans for it. So should i take this

these are what im getting to go with it.

Its very similar to the 690, thats actually what I thought it was at first glance. I like this case a little more as I feel it has better cable management than the 690.

I don't know about the Lian Li's cable management since I never owned one, but the CM690's cable management is pretty nice.

Here's a few pics. :)

I need to get some more zip ties to get the cables in place, so I haven't gotten into any heavy cable management just yet. I can only imagine how much cooler the case will be when I get a majority of the bulk out of the way. :D

I bought that same exact Antec case fan, and they're loud as hell. I usually keep it on the middle speed to get enough air going through my case, and it's by far the loudest fan even with the Zalman going nearly full speed. The best fans I have ever seen are the Scythe case fans. I bought 6 of them for a friend when he upgraded his PC, and we couldn't even tell if it was on — it was that silent. They may be a bit more expensive, but the CFM to sound ratio more than makes up for the price.

Here's some good Scythe fans.

Like I said, you can mod it yourself. Its piss easy to do. CoolerMaster (http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/product_info.php?cPath=18_25&products_id=193) even sells them on their website. It even comes with a free 120mm fan — all for $20. Or you can buy them online for about $18-30 more from a third party if you don't want to do it yourself. They'll even customize it to whatever shape you want. With drill holes I might add, so you can mount your choice of fan sizes. ;)

I don't frequent there much, but I do go there for some referencing every now and then. :)

Funny thing is after talking about the clear panel for the CM690, I went ahead and bought one so I can save myself the trouble of grinding my knuckles down with the dremel and messing with the acrylic sheets. :p Gonna miss my 140mm though. :(
