The 500R probably has better out-of-the box cooling due to the side panel fan, but with the 4 x 120mm side panel mesh on the 600T, you could potentially beat the 500R. Really they both have a lot of headroom since you can get up to 10 fans in the 400R/500R (6 of which can be 140mm or 120mm, and 4 120mm), if you're a fan of overkill, you can go nuts. In my tests with a 3-way SLI 580 rig, the 500R testing showed almost no difference between 6 fans installed and 10 fans installed. But it was fun to try out.

I know I should have taken photo of my old rig to show you guys but it wasn't that bad.. old armor case had same 200mm side fan too but my new 500R lowered gpu temp around 10C... similar room temp, bfbc2 ran 72c after hours of play now barely 60c.. fan from the below and from front(attached additional fan right beside hdd rack inside) provides so much cool air to my gpu even after hours of load, temp just don't seem to raise. OCCT, Furmark, Heaven runs all showing around 10C difference in temperature in load.

Here's the inside of my 400r. You can't see it, but I added an exhaust fan on top to the existing fans.

It could be done Push and Pull but the top cover would have to stay off frown.gif
Edit: I think it's the same way for the 600T
EDIT 2: We need a signature for this club biggrin.gif

I was thinking about hacking up my old Antec P160 for more fans but the 500r has now caught my eye. It will be a much better solution than the (H)ell XPS 720 that I currently own. Yes, I need a new mb and power supply too but it will be worth it.

I'm loving this thread!

How do you think I got my Q6600 from?wink.gif A found trashed HP computer with a bad mobo, so I built a system around it from parts I already had and purchased the mobo from EBay.

I just within the past month or so upgraded my PSU to a x650 from a Newegg shell shocker.

The specs below.biggrin.gif

Although I wished that front panel filter on the 400r/500r was easier to clean but it seems to be a great case and will serve many well.smile.gif
