Wow, im really glad and quite surprised at the builds with the 600T.
This case is flying off the shelves, considering how old it is.
Keep up the good work everybody!

Hi everyone. Okay, my new case arrived two days ago. Considering I'll only be building in September, it feels weird to have it just sitting in the hallway!

Anyway, I've got a few questions regarding cooling:
  1. I'm most likely going to replace the 200mm fans. I'm looking at the Xigmatek XLF-F2004, since they're 20mm deep like the stocks. Has anyone used these, and if so, are they better than the stock fans? (EDIT - they seem identical to the Xigmatek CLF-F2004 if that helps. Links at the bottom)
  2. Also, I'm tossing up between
    • a. running a stock CPU cooler (i7 4770) and an AF-Quiet Edition fan as rear exhaust (push or pull?), or
    • b. using a Corsair H60SE instead.
    In terms of noise, which would be better? I'm a massive water-cooling virgin, so I'd need to be convinced for option b smile.gif


The main reason I don't want to go via after market air cooling, is because I'll be using 32GB (4 x 8) of Vengeance RAM, and they have fairly large heat spreaders...

Thanks in advance. I can't wait to finally get all the pieces together and build this PC (building a new desk at the same time!)

First of all. If you don't use the one if the HHD cages then remove it and place the other closer to the PSU (yes you can do that)

The 200mm is not good and if you want optimal cooling even with a better 200mm fan you need to cut out the honeycomb mesh in the front (I don't know anything about the xigmatek fan)

Always run the rear fan as exhaust unless you got a dust filter and you are only exhuasting throught the top smile.gif You want to use it at exhaust because you need to remove the hot air around the CPU.

You can easy buy the H60 without any worries. Remember it's sealed from the factory so you just have to plug it in and then go smile.gif

You can also get small aircoolers that dont block ram slots (Noctua-U12S or phanteks PH-TC12DX) But why 32gb ram?

All in all I also prefered air because I don't OC or only do small OC so I would say option A.

If I'm not mistaken the Corsair ones are actually a Xigmatek OEM, so I wouldn't get one of those if I were you. Get a Cooler Master Mega Flow or the Bitfenix Spectre Pro instead. Much better fans!

Yep. But I'll be using quite a few hard drives:
2 x SSDs (OS and Scratch disk)
1 x 2TB HDD
1 x 1TB HDD
debating whether I need another 500GB internal. Might chuck this one in an external caddy

So will I be able to move BOTH cages over? Other option is to just leave one of the SSDs on the right, since they don't have to sit in a drive bay.

Oh dear. No I'm not going to mod this case like that at all! I love it too much to cut into it smile.gif

Thanks for the recommendations! I'll check them out. The PC is going to be a photo/video editing rig. I am going for as much RAM as I can fit and afford.

Thanks. Out of those two (we've discussed this before I think!) I'll probably choose the Bitfenix (black). I'm not a fan of the LEDs showing through the front of the case.

So all in all:

-Remove both drive caddies, and move one next to the PSU, which will house the SSD and 2 x HDDs
-Chuck the spare SSD over on the right
-Replace the top and front 200mm with a Bitfenix Spectre Pro (presume I don't need to mod the top of the case since these fans are 30mm? Will they interfere with the mobo?)
-either buy one of the fans mentioned by Zillerella and add an AF-120 to the back, or buy a H60SE

That sound right?
