I just bought the case (690 II Advanced) off New Egg. I didn't think about getting additional fans or anything, but now I am.

The parts I ordered are here:

Should I buy additional fans or will the supplied fans be enough?

Doesn't answer my question though. Trying to see if the supplied fans will be enough or should I buy more?

Well, if I built with the case and needed four addition 120mm fans to fill up the vacant fan installation holes...hmmmm?

note: I built the system for a kid and can not remember if it was the 'Advanced' version of the 690. But looks the same.

What specs? Mine runs about 450, you probably built a very nice rig for them, and runs hotter.

I'm not trying to be mean or offend or anything, just trying to see if *I* need to buy more or not. Just because one you built required it, doesn't mean mine does. Did you look at the specs on the link I provided?

The stock cooling should be sufficient especially since you make no indication of a gpu.
I have the Basic version with the same fan set-up(added a 140mm top).and 212+
Also a 120mm in the lower side panel mount.
I will be moving it to the back of the hdd cage.
Pulls in way too much dust(unfiltered).Could add panyhose or some type of filter.
Too easy just to move it inside.
I have my 902 set-up with a 120mm on the back of a hdd cage = no dust.
Temps were the same as side panel configuration.
Blows air over gpu.

I'm not sure whether to condemn you for your stupidity or marvel at your ability to form words.

@badge:
Fine, I'll reword it to make it to your standards.
Just because the one you built required you to buy additional fans does not mean the one I am building will require more fans than the included fans.
Happy now?

EDIT:
BTW, I know there are extra slots, and you felt that since there are slots you had to fill them. I don't feel the same way. I was asking if it is required to keep the case cool with the specs of the system I bought.

And Davcon, I am using an XFX Radeon HD 5770 GPU.

You should have no problems with the 5770 and the stock CM690II fan configuration.
The 5770 isn't a hot running gpu.
Is your gpu a reference 5770 which exhaust out the case.?

Or one of these which exhaust in the case?

It's never a horrible idea to add more cooling/fans as long as they're reasonable quiet.
I would suggest you buy 140mm since they move more air and are generally quieter then 120mm.
This is the fan i added as a top exhaust.

It's the 2nd one, same make & model that I have, in fact.

I was thinking of adding a few, but wanted to know if any more were required. Guess it doesn't.

How are these fans? Can't beat the price after rebate.

EDIT: Forgot the link

Those are good fans tricky i've never heard otherwise!
