The 600t is a great case! thumb.gif

I wonder though, if you had to get another case and it could not be the 600t what would you get?

I like the new 350d, Fractal Design R4, I also like the Bitfenix Prodigy, that looks like a neat little case.

I've got a couple cases on my radar

1. The Coolermaster Cosmos II - I recently built a rig in one of these for a friend and it was the most pleasureable experience I have had to date with a case. The only thing it's missing is a removeable motherboard tray. Oh and it's 350.00 Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119252

2. The Corsair Cube - It's just awesome looking and seems to be LAN friendly Link: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811139022

3. Coolermaster HAF-XB - I love this case. Built this for a friend who wanted something to go in the living room. The cooling on this looks awesome and it's very very easy to work in

Click on the "learn" link at the top of the page.

It's actually pretty easy to water cool with this case stock. You can fit a 240mm rad up top with zero modding, and if you remove the front hard drive cages you could put another rad up front (200mm, that may require slight modding for mounting-screw holes). You can even put a 120mm rad in the rear fan spot. If you don't want to mod at all, you can put a 120mm in the rear and a 240 up top. Some people have even mounted a 200mm rad on the side panel using the mesh with little to no modding, so this is actually an excellent case for water cooling. There are a ton of water builds in this thread you could look at for examples.

Here's an example of a rear 120mm and a side 200mm (there are other rads in this case as well, but you can't see them from that angle) Um, not the blue one at the top, but the next two pictures down. :

If you really like the 600T you may also be interested in the 650D. It's also on Corsair's website at the link above (in the Obsidian section). It has pretty much all the same features of the 600T, and the interior is almost identical. The biggest difference is cosmetic, and that the top doesn't have the fan compartment, but provides room for fans and a rad inside the case instead. Since the side panels are not convex like the 600T there is also a little less room for cable management. Sweet case though. One of my roommates has one. Note that, since it has no fan compartment in the top, it only has one set of mesh at the top which makes it easier for air to go through, thus making this case cool slightly better than the 600T. It does not have the side mesh option though, only the window

Well today was a sad day indeed. I have had a small leak in my system for a little while now but couldnt find it for the life of me. I figured since I was only loosing a little water that it was evaporating before it could drip off and leave a mark. Well this morning I topped off my rig with water and by noon it had dropped to almost to the halfway mark on my 250 mm Liquid Fusion reservoir. I let my nephew play skyrim for a couple hours and then came back up to check it and the reservoir had a half inch of water in it sucking air bubbles here and there.

Took it apart and after a while of searching, I found that my front 200mm Phobya radiator had sprung a leak somewhere in the fins. I checked all 8 mounting points to check and see if I punched a hole in the radiator at some point with a screw, but all the spaces are untouched. From what I can tell, the left side(side ports facing toward you and down) about 3/4 the way up is where its started with wetness. To top it off, it has more wetness on the plenum side of my radiator, which means I couldnt just of poked it with something by accident.

So what do you guys think will be the best method of testing for the leak location so I can possibly get a new radiator. I need to prove it is a defect and not mishandling/abuse.




Now my case has a huge void in the front where the radiator should be. But at least I have a 120+360 radiators to keep my rig running while its out. Will run some tests to see how warm it gets now compared to having all 3 radiators running.

I have good news everyone, I just ordered my Corsair 600TM Black Edition, $179 w/ Window Included! rolleyes.gif
I have been reading up on modifications for this case and I don't want to do anything that will void my warranty. tongue.gif
I had a chat with Corsair and I'm arranging to trade in my broken H80i w/ some extra cash to upgrade to the H100i with 2x SP120 biggrin.gif
Thanks to my mate who works at CentreCom, He was able to give me not just the Mesh, But the window from an old broken demo unit of the 600T SE thumb.gif

Most likely if I remove some parts safely I can get the radiator on the top of my case and fans under it, This theoretically (I hope) will blow the hot air out of the radiator though the case and since heat rises, if I have the top filter covering my radiator the radiator will be exposed to cool room temperature and not stuck in a hot case.
I should be getting close if not near to Dual push and pull temperatures thumb.gif

Great! thumb.gif

I don't think it's possible to put the radiator on top of the case without cutting into the mesh. But you can fit it inside the case without modding as explained a few pages back. You just use 3 screws for the radiator.

Yeah 240mm rads are no real problem for this case, it's as soon as it gets to around a 360mm or higher you would get problems. But with some modding you might even be able to squeeze a 360mm in there doubtful but hey not impossible. The only cases that i know of that fits any radiator in existence (almost) is the TJ11 and 900D i mean you can put a 560mm quad 140mm fan radiator in the bottom with some modding that is pretty freaking huge, and a 480mm in the top for good measure.

Terrible choice of case, I'd go with a Cooler Master case instead.....



JK! biggrin.gif Make sure to get some pictures of your build when you get it thumb.gif

Oh, and I think a proper welcome to the club is in place!

Fans in shroud and radiator inside is not a problem. If you want it the other way you need to cut some mesh.

Is it the same rad? It seems to me that if you're not fiddling around with it a lot and it stays mounted, that shows how it is protected from the inside by the fans and plenum, and on the outside by the mesh on the front of the case. I think you should show them a picture of your build and tell them how the rad is pretty protected, and has been operating leak-free for two years until now. With that build it would be pretty hard to poke that rad. I still like the job you did on it too. It looks even better now. Have you thought about covering it with some vinyl or painting it?

Yeah, you can mod this case for a 360mm:



And the top mesh cover will still fit if you remove the plastic ribs.

I think you should show them a picture of your build and tell them how the rad is pretty protected, and has been operating leak-free for two years until now. With that build it would be pretty hard to poke that rad. I still like the job you did on it too. It looks even better now. Have you thought about covering it with some vinyl or painting it?
Yeah, you can mod this case for a 360mm:

And the top mesh cover will still fit if you remove the plastic ribs.

Wow thanks for pointing out that I have had the same setup for two years, minus the GPU upgrade and some additional mods. Would of never figured I had it this long, man how time flies. No wonder why I have been itching for an upgrade. Have to make myself hold out until Haswell-E comes out and hope to grab one of those rumored 8 core CPUs.

Yes its the same exact radiator with the same plenum, I just switched the fans from Vipers to Piranhas and made them exhaust. I did have to remove the whole radiator and then remove the plenum to remount the new fans, but that was months ago. I was very anal about not hurting the radiator when doing so. I do have the front mesh cutout of my 600T, so when I remove the front plastic mesh the radiator is there unprotected by the metal mesh. But since I removed the fine filter layer(since it was exhausting) I have had no reason to remove the plastic mesh.

Thanks for the compliments, have been thinking about buying another 600T to replace this one since I have molested this one so much. That way I could have a fresh start with all the mods I want and do them right(and mine only has 2 plastic tabs on the front plastic and 1 on the back lol). And I thought about painting it to match the case, but I like the unfinished look. Honestly Id rather add some more to spread the look throughout the case. Uh-oh now you got the wheels turning again lol.

What would be awesome, is if I could get Phobya to RMA it, and allow me to upgrade to the Phobya Xtreme 400 and do like Devious Dog did and make another plenum for 6 fans. I just love the idea of a wall sized radiator. But I am busy as can be the next few days and may not be able to reach my computer. So I will contact Phobya next week.

Putting a Phobya Xtreme 400 in the front of this case is a breeze, and besides they look "dead sexy" (of course you have to say that in the voice of Fat Barstard) the only down side is you will loose all your 5.25" drive bays.. not a problem to me.. and my two Phobya Xtreme 400 drop the water temp from 80'C to 24'C in approx less than 2 minutes.. and the ambient is around 24'C.. highly impressed with these Phobya Xtreme 400 and they fit so naturally in the front of the Corsair 600T. And I will say it again.. they look dam sexy. tongue.gif
