New to Corsair 600T -- advice needed! - Page 3

post #21 of 55
I'm talking about the PSU's exhaust. Another option is maybe cutting some of the bottom mesh and maybe mounting a fan undernear or on the floor of the case ? I wont have much room to do that. Also if you plan on using the EX rads you can fit 25MM fans in push/pull. Make sure your rad isent bigger and your fans arent either.

So to have push/pull on the top, my rad needs to be ~36mm (XSPC EX240's width) and the fans 25mm each? About 85mm of total clearance?

Reading through the 600T owner's thread, some are complaining that 240 rad doesn't fit in the front. Is that just because they didn't remove the HD cage's bottom stand? I'd prefer to have a 240 rad in front and on top to keep all fans PWM controlled.

I'm slighty modifying the front of the case to fit the rad vertically . Under the bottom drive bay I'll be cutting witha dremel about 4x2 inchs to fit the rad and be flush with the bottom of the case where the feet touch the floor/ desk top. I have no decided if I will weld a piece of metal to hold it up . I'll be working out some of these questions soon when I get to building this beast.

Good luck. I'll be following you closely. I have my PC components because I'm transferring cases to add the water cooling. I ordered a 240, pump, and blocks so I can start fiddling with it myself. Case gets here tomorrow and components next week...I'll see what I come up with and share.

Don't know if the Rep+ is a big deal, but I added one to you and Caleal. Thanks to you both for the help so far!

You 'can' fit a 120x2.2 in the front.

This is the guys work log, best 600t ive ever seen.

Wow. That thing's incredible. I'd need to buy some new tools to make that work.

Got the case yesterday....very heavy. A little bulkier looking than I thought, too.

It is yeah, the sides almost go out too, or atleast it looks like it because the front panel.

I'm trying to map out my radiators and fans. I'd prefer to have a 200 in the front over a 240 because the 200 has more surface area, and I could save the bottom 5.25" drive bay, which is the problem with the crazy 480 install linked above. The problem with the 200 is there aren't any PWM controlled 200mm fans. Here's my (possible) solution:

The width of the side panels will allow me to have 4 120mm fans blowing on a 200mm radiator without losing the bottom drive.

I'll install a 240 on top.

Any advice?
