How should I put the fan on a cm690 case

I have a coolermaster 690 with side window and I would like to know where should I put 5 fans to keep a good airflow.I'd appreciate a chart or a picture of your pcs.Also note that it's got the side window since it means that the upper side opening is placed on the other side of the case.Help please

Please suggest a good silent fan too.

  1. Front and Side Fans - Blowing air into the case.

    Rear and Top Fans - Blowing air out of the case.

    You dont need a picture its self explanatory.
  2. I would use 3 or 4 fans, 1 intake in the front HD bay, 1 rear exhaust and test whether to use only the top rear fan as exhaust or install both top fans to use as exhaust.
  3. I see that your case can have 7 fans in total.

    Front: 120 x 25 mm Blue LED fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 21 dBA
    Rear: 120 x 25 mm fan x 1 / 1200 RPM / 21 dBA
    Top: 120 or 140 mm fan x 2 (optional)
    Bottom: 120 x 25 mm fan x 1 (optional)
    Left: 120 x 25 mm fan x 2 (one is optional)

    If you have 5 fans i would suggest:
    1x front
    1x side
    1x rear
    2x top

    ok now I saw it thanks
  6. 1x front - intake
    1x side - intake
    1x rear - exhaust
    2x top - exhaust
  7. +1 what sarsoft said.

    The bottom/front to top/rear airflow is the classic configuration.
  8. for me

    2 fans on top intake
    1 fan front intake
    1 fan bottom intake

    1 fan side exhaust
    1 fan rear exhaust (i used a high cfm fan for this)
