If you mod the front panel ( cut it to fit ) than 2X180mm fans would fit , 2x200mm won't fit , they might fit in the bottom if you remove the small triangular support bracket at the front bottom of the case .

Hi,
I have the Corsair Carbie 600Q and I believe I read on a review that there is an easy way to remove the PSU Shroud and a Youtube video showing how to do this - can anyone point me in the right direction please ?
Thanks a mill.

Yes actually, the way my desk is set up I need an inverted case so that the window doesn't face the wall.

I just put together a system with this case (600C) and it's almost hard to express how happy I am with it.

It's actually 10mm wider than the 900D. !!!
Looks absolutely stunning.
Inverse ITX is looks better if you keep your PC on a stand to the right side of your desk and not on the desk (I use a single layer of some cheap plastic stacking shelves, PC on top, battery Backups below, wonderful configuration).
Built in hardware fan controller! (basically adds $20 to the value of the case, stock fans are very quiet on low. The Q must be nearing absolute silence on low fan speed).
Tool-less drive mounts everywhere, even the 5.25" bays, you could practically hot-swap optical drives if software would support it (really that should be a thing by now). Without the optical drive that space nicely hides all the extra cables on the old PSU that I used.
Tons of interior space (I'm practically allergic to standard ATX cases now). For a moment I actually started to think that the walls are too deep, but it does give you lots of room to access the GPU mounting screws.
The front door (to the optical bay) is very cool.

The only legitimate flaw I could find was the window panel latch is a bit stiff, I find myself pushing on it a bit to get it to latch fully.
I do also have a list of nitpicks:
1. Plain old, regular and uninteresting thumb screws holding on the left side (back of motherboard) panel. I know it's reliable and extremely cost efficient, but with so many things going tool-less you'd think they could come up with something more interesting, and I don't consider that panel any less important given that you need to remove it any time you access hard drives or PSU cables, pretty much any time you change anything with the system. Both doors are equally important IMO.
2. Removing the front panel for airfilter cleaning is " very fiddly" at best. Especially after you run a bunch of cables overtop of the locking tabs it can be hard to press them down and release the front panel. If the filter had been accessible without removing the panel this would be an absolute non-issue, but as-is it's going to annoy me every other year when I think about cleaning the screens.
3. Apparently tool-less GPU mounting is a thing, that should be an industry standard by now. Lead the way George!
4. Two of the cable management holes don't have rubber grommets.

5. It's not an "Obsidian" case. Given the build quality, aesthetics, features, and that it's probably a superior design over the other "Obsidian" cases in the same price range, I really have to wonder it this shouldn't have just been called a "745D" or something like that, just adding $10 worth of stuff probably would have made it a stunningly well finished package. As-is I call it just "nearly perfect".

I just turned my Corsair Carbide 540 upside down and stood it on two new rolls of duct tape. Works fine, not very pretty from above so I put it up on a shelf. Love how it puts the power supply at the top in the back UNDER the motherboard. I don't think it'd be too hard to make a case with interchangeable top and bottom with air handlers so you could flip the main compartment and just screw 8 lugs in to change the side it faces.

You can just about do that with an Azza 9000, but then it's a reversible backpane/plate case.

What we NEED is cases that have the option-panel for closed loop/hybrid graphics cards. I mean I've got my 295x2 blowing out the rear case vent beside the IO and it works fine but if I had two I'd have to blow the second one out the front using a baffle card to keep it from recirculating around the fans...

If you've not seen or put your hands in a Carbide 540, you'll not understand why it is the yardstick for cases.

The 540 looks awesome, I would love to -not- have to buy extension cables for my CPU power, and those fully hot-swap enabled SSD mounts should be standard on everything over $100, but... it's wider than my computer stand, and I like the solid top on the 600C, and I'm just in love with clean slate exteriors.

Thanks for the the great thread, I'm going to be modding the 600C for Corsair and haven't seen the case in person yet.

I got to touch and feel up the case again toady at Microcenter and man a big part of me really wishes I would have gotten it. You will rock it Bill, I know it!

Hi, does anyone know if Asus's Rampage V 10 Edition's front panel headphone amp fit in the 600C 5.25" drive bay and still have the drive bay door closed completely, as in the amp's knob doesn't stick out enough to stop the door? Thanks.
