Considering watercooling in my Corsair Graphite 600T (white) case?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
I'm considering becoming watercooled in the case mentioned in the thread title. Specification of my system is in my signature area. I basically want to know what people suggest for this sort of case and setup, I'm new to this type of cooling (and please don't suggest a half-way idea such as H60, H70 or H100, I want a proper one).

Please also bear in mind that I'm in the UK, not the USA, so any product links to buy something should ideally be from a shop in the UK.

So, suggestions please? Thanks .

Also if something leaks, perhaps not initially but at a later stage (weeks maybe?) when I'm out and the system is running, what could I expect if water landed on a component, a typical short and possible damage?

I know a Rasa RS240 kit will fit. I think you can get a 200mm rad in the front too. i know you can in my 650D and the 600T is basically the same.

I don't know if this helps but I fit a Rasa RS240 radiator in the top of my 500R. With two fans in the compartment on top pulling, however I was only able to fit one fan under the radiator inside the case pushing out.

I started watercooling in a 600T. It can be done, and done well, but there are limited choices unless you modify the case. I like aquatuning for my gear, they are based out of Germany but they ship fast. As far as choice rad choices, a 200mm rad fits up front as long as you relocate the HDD cage to the rear position by the power supply. A slim 240 rad fits up top, the thicker rads unfortunately hit up against the mobo. You can also add a 120mm rad in the rear exhaust position. I have a shot of my last WC set up in my build log, which was in a 600T.

Due to the space constraint inside the case I had considered the possibility of fixing the radiator outside on the top of the case, provided I remove the top fan provided with the case and remove the protecting grill (which is easily removable just by pressing it down and lifting it off). Do you think that would be possible to do?

I'm looking at bits for the w/c at the moment, getting a tad confused with the diameter of tubing I need for the RS suggestion.

I wasn't aware of the HDD rack was relocatable, I knew you could remove it, which isn't an option as I use both removable racks. Also if it was moved nearer the PSU that would be a problem, might surely conflict with the graphics card.

Also if anyone can clarify, the water you use with watercooling setups, what happens if it leaks onto something like the GPU, or PSU?

Go with 1/2 ID, and up to you on OD, (5/8 or 3/4). The thicker the OD the harder it is to kink, but not a huge difference between the two. Remember if you go with compression fittings you will need to buy the the type that fits your diameter selection.

If you don't mind an external rad, you have many more choices. I would rather mount it on the back with one of the koolance brackets that mounts to the rear fan exhaust.

If it leaks, well worst case scenario you lose the components that get wet. Best case scenario, you allow 24-48hrs for a drying period and the piece comes back to life. But this is why a thorough leak test is always advised.

How much do you want to mod that case?

I think the best you can do as stock is like skinny(ram limits it) 240 in the roof, and a rad in the back.

If you wanted to mod it then you might be able to fit a RX360 in the front if you dremmel out the floor of the 5.25 bay.
