Still a work in progress. Just transferred everything into my new 600T. Still waiting on a few parts, sleeves, new fans, side panel. Looking around trying to see what all you guys have going on with yours. Don't mind the cable management right now, wasn't too worried about it until I got the new sleeved cables in.

I just added a few new photos. I will update this as I progress with the new additions. Just threw a fan guard on the H50 because one of those 2000RPM Excalibur fans took a bite out of my knuckle last night. I'm going to have to paint it black so it isn't so shiny and noticeable.

Hey guys! First post here on the forums.

Im still waiting for the 600T White edition to come in from Amazon... but I have all the parts waiting to be put in. Hopefully none of them are DOA otherwise it might be to late to return them by the time the case gets in

Quick question:

-Ive built PCs before, and never took the precaution of making sure everything is grounded before touching PC parts. Ive never even heard of that till now. How important is this? I dont really want to spend the money to get a anti-static mat...

better to error on the side of caution. You don't need one of those bracelets/mats as long as you routinely touch a grounded piece of metal during installation. You could use your computer case as long as it has the PSU installed, its plugged into a wall socket (the wall socket has to be grounded too), rocker switch set to off. Touch the case/power supply (unpainted spot, a powder coated spot I hear is okay) to discharge any built up static electricity before touching a mobo/component. Its a fact the static electricity can wreck your gear, though I don't know how likely it is (like getting hit by lightening I imagine). I wouldn't take a chance if its so easy to avoid.

If you 600T SE buyers are still looking for the CASE and is in the US and have Microcenter stores in your AREA. They are officially in Stock. I just picked up one for a Low price compared to any on the market for $169.99. Definitely a good price.

Just finished my new build with this case. It was an absolute dream to work with, though I have a couple issues.

1. When I unpacked the case, I carefully examined it (I've got serious OCD) to look for any defects, etc. and I saw that the metal tabs on the case doors were slightly bent. No biggy I guess since it's on the inside of the case.
2. The top mesh cover where you push to open doesn't work properly. I push it and it dislodges but it doesn't open. It'll open randomly when I either hit the side of the case or put the side panels back on the case. I'll mess around with it a little more and see what's causing it to malfunction.

Nothing major, just minor annoyances. Case is uber sexy though. It looks like the Batmobile. All Corsair and EVGA, mmm.

This case is LITERALLY amazing! It was my first build ever and I was just so happy that everything worked. (I'm 15 btw) The rubber gromits were fantastic for managing the cables even though it looks like crap still behind the other panel, but its my first build so whatever. I don't wana put pictures up until I have the side panel with the window and the rest of my led strips in red. Here's my specs:
Asus Crosshair IV Extreme Mono
AMD Phenom II X6 1090t
Corsair H70 Liquid Cooler
Corsair Dominator GT 8gb 2000mhz
Asus Radeon HD 6950 x2 CrossfireX
Corsair Nova 32gb SSD
WD Velociraptor 300gb
WD 7200rpm 2TB
Corsair AX850 850W PSU
Corsair 600t of course!
I really want to liquid cool the whole system, CPU, gpu, mobo, etc but I'm not really sure yet because of the case but ill have to see from these tutorials on here. Thanx.

This is my first build as well and like you I want to liquid cool my cpu and gpu's but knowing very little about liquid cooling I don't dare attempt such a thing. Just like you I am going with the H70 for my cpu because it's the closest thing to full on liquid cooling you can get with little knowledge about it.

I myself have the white 600T and I am planning on replacing the 200mm fan at the top with two Delta 120mm 210cfm fans for sucking the heat right out of the case. And I am thinking about adding 2-4 120mm fans for intake on the side panel. Also since the fan controller is a bit on the week side, I am getting a 3rd party fan controller.

Nice build! Looks good!

2 120mm fans won't fit in the top with the H70...tried it the other day...I decided to go with a wc loop.

do you know how thick you can go with fans and still fit under the top grill? I wanted to use AP-15s that are 25mm thick and tuck them under the grill.
