[Help!] Modding a Mountain Mods 3 x 5.25 fan adapter and 600t mods

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, just receiving my Mountain Mods 3 x 5.25 acrylic fan adapter
I'm using this on a white 600t. So, anyways, the area I want to install it (top front cage) has these tabs between each 5.25 bay. What would be the easiest way to cut the acrylic to accommodate these tabs? Right now it will install, but not far back enough to put the mesh inserts back in.

Also, what would be the easiest way to convert the front 200mm to 2 x 120mm?

Thanks very much for your help, cooling is definitely a priority here and I think Corsair should've added a few more options

Well, as far as the tabs go, its going to be a bit difficult. You may have to either cut the acrylic or cut the tabs. To cut the acrylic like that, you will have to use a dremel, cant be done by hand since you need to cut thin slats off of it.

For the 200 mm to 120 mm, first check if 2X120 mm fans can fit there comfortably. If they can, then just use 3M double sided tape. thats what I did in my mod, but its not a corsair 600 case, so you will have to check.

Link is in my sig.

Thanks for the reply! I'm glad you suggested 3m tape, as that was the route I was going take just didn't know if it would hold fans well.

Yeah, this SEEMS like more trouble than it's worth. I may just get some foam from Hobby Lobby and use it to fit the fan snugly in there.
