If you like 120mm/140mm fans you sould read this

Or this one

I have read both actually wink.gif And I'm just saying this, because he probably wants 200mm because they are supposedly quieter, which isn't the case. And you won't have any problems when mounting them horizontally right away, they just dry up way faster. And yes, those Bitfenix fans should fit in the Corsair 600t (only the NZXT cases have differently sized holes afaik.

Honestly, I'm not all that worried about having an invisible PC. I can deal noise so long as its not absurd, its just these big cases that I need to fit my rig into have 200mm slots, which I am sure as hell going to utilize.

The Bitfenix 200 mm fans can be heard at max speed but they are not super loud what i did is i bought a fan controller so i can turn them up and down

Thing is, you can fit two 140mm fans instead of the 200mm one in most cases, which gives better air flow at lower noise levels (my experience anyway). But since you have the 200mm ones already it might be a tad expensive.

@OP You can always use zip ties to mount those fans. Just use two of the locking mechanims to keep the fan in place biggrin.gif

The problem is that the fan doesn't even fit in the top fan slot. Can't even get it in there. Anyways I just got 300 newegg bucks for Christmas opening up what I was saving for the 600t

Problem solved. Screw nzxt.

Actually, they are 200mm fans. I think you need to adjust your caliper.

The Original Phantom, along with our 200mm fans, were produced before there was any kind of standard for 200mm fan mounting. We went one way, other companies went other ways, it was an unfortunate mess. Mounting for 200mm fans has become more standardized throughout the industry since the release of the original Phantom lineup.

Sorry to hear that. We've sold an enormous amount of Phantom chassis and it's our best selling product of all time. May I ask what you didn't like? Not all cases are going to appeal to all people, and that's understandable, but what were some of your issues with the chassis?
