Airflow concerns 600t.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am looking at getting a new case and some upgrades inside my computer.

I really have settled on wanting the 600T pending on how well air flow will be with the side panel window ON.

I plan on using the Corsair H100 and I believe its recommended most people use this as a intake.

This leaves me with
1 200mm Front intake
1 120mm rear exhaust
2 120mm Rad intake fans.

I am also going to wedge a 120mm fan in between the drive bay and hard drive racks for increased air flow to my SLI GTX 560'S. (see picture). If needed I will buy a xigamatek drive bay converter for another 120mm.

Plan on getting vented slot covers as well to help exhaust heat.

But is this too much intake and not enough exhaust in my case? I'm not very keen on airflow and positive and negative pressure in computer cases, I just worry that too much hot air will be in my case, of course its being intaked from several areas but not leaving the case fast enough.

I really want to use the window on the case and not the mesh panel, and I want my video cards to be able to run cooler.(I know this case isn't great for gpu cooling but it definitely can't be worse then the storm scout with my two video cards sandwiched together with 2mm of space between.)

its honestly not as bad as you think

I have 2 580s in SLI in my 600t.

I have 1 intake 200mm, H100 intake, and a rear exhaust.

I changed all the fans though. Front is a cooler master 200mm, rear is a scythe slipstream 1900rpm. My temps are fine. I also don't normally use a side panel, though.

How are the GPUs sandwiched in any way like you mentioned lol? Btw, may I ask for the temps in SLI? Plus you are fine.

The way I have mine set up in my HAF-X is, front intake 220mm, 200mm side intake, 120mm front intake (5.25"), 120mm intake (HDD bay zip tied for GPU), rear H80 P/P intake, top 200mm x2 exhaust.

The way you have it is fine, having too much intake does keep the air flowing better than having more exhaust imo, but it definitely increases dust buildup by a damn lot .
