I've just joined the 600T club and I have some doubts for when I build my rig:

Asus Sabertooth z77
Corsair H100i
Corsair 600T

I have 1 Bitfenix 200mm front fan for intake, a Corsair AF120 in the back for exhaust and a couple of Corsair SP120 for the H100i. My problem is that I don't know in which direction should be the fans blowing for an optimal airflow inside the case.

My 2 options are:

1. keep the rest of the fans as I posted before and put the h100i fans blowing air into the case

2. turn the rear AF120 as an intake and put the h100i fans as an exhaust (blowing air out of the case).

My main concerns are the temperatures of all the components (GPU/CPU/RAM...) and the amount of dust that can be stored in the case.

Since here I found a lot of experts configuring this case I thought somebody could help me a lil bit!thanks in advance!
Only run your rear fan as intake if you have a gpu that expels the air inside the case....My setup is like this,,,,200mm front intake another 120mm front intake (in my optical drive bay) there is four slots and i dnt use a dvd/blu-ray so the extra slot thats left is use for my fan controller....H100i exhaust and rear 120mm exhaust....The extra 120mm in the optical bay helps to feed air to my H100i while exhausting....

Thanks for ur opinion, I think I'll try first without the extra front 120 mm fan, and if I'm not happy enough with temperatures I'll go for this:

But man when people said it was expensive to water cool boy were they right. I could have easily bought two 780's for the cost of my loop which includes the cost of the tools I had to buy to mod my case.

Yeah, although in the long run it pays off I think... If treated well, a cooling loop should last you a good amount of years. Can't say the same about full cover GPU blocks though... And those are ridiculously expensive. I'm going to save up for a big ass kit biggrin.gif

Oh well not bad temps, my 780 idles at around 37C and load is about 80 at max, so 43C delta, not bad really since it's not dual fan, really would love having the MSI Lightning or Twin Frozr, though you couldn't get them when they were first released oh well. My CPU idles at around 30C and 75 on prime95, but in gaming only about 68-70 tops. Which is not that bad for CM 212 if you ask me. And in the summer times like know where it's 25-30C outside it sure makes everything hotter.

It's 21:9 aspect ratio, search for Dell UltraSharp U2913WM (The one I own) or LG 29EA93. 1440p or 1600p monitors are very expensive, and I wanted more than just a plain 1080p LCD... I thought of buying a 24" 120Hz 3D and a 3D Vision kit, but after much reading I ended up finding out that 3D isn't that much of a big deal, and nowadays 120Hz is extremely hard to reach with newer games. So I decided to search a bit mroe and found this gem of LCD, bigger than a plain 24" almost as big as a 30" but about half the price, and mostly made up for ditching my old couple 22" 1050p LCDs.

I wanted to get the 670 Signature 2... But all of the sudden they went out of stock everywhere! I could only find the FTW! and I didn't really like the looks and it was alot more expensive...

Heh, outside over here, yesterday we got 41C... dayum...

I don't like much to have a huge difference between intake vs exhaust, but I hope my 200 mm Bitfenix front fan would get to move more air than the stock one.

Thanks again.

Glad to help thumb.gif

Yeah okay that makes more sense, damn thats one wide screen biggrin.gif and if you look in my sig you can see i'm a part of a club called The Korean PLS Monitor Club, which is cheap Korean IPS/PLS monitors in 1440p -1600p i got my Korean QNIX 27" for only 250€ and you can get the seller to mark the package as only worth around 100€ so you almost pay no taxes.

They are basically A- or B+ grade monitors made by LG (the manufacturers of the Apple Cinema Display) and some other high end displays. There is of course the off chance that you can get lightbleed and stuck/dead pixels, but the chances are very slim (i can testify and say i have absolute 0 lightbleed, even less than my previous monitor an official LG even, and no stuck/dead pixels)

I've never had a better monitor, the only negative is the stand that comes which is very flimsy, but you can easily put a 100x100mm VESA mount on it. Which costs almost nothing really. And dayom 41C, only the Mojave Desert/Death Valley can beat that this year with a whopping 55C, highest measured except for places like Sahara of course with that highest temperature in the world of around 58C. But luckily almost none live those places. But we do have high humidity so 30C or so feels easily like 40C, sweating like a pig because i'm on the top floor in my house stitchfacesmiley.png

Edit: The one i have is made by Samsung, but either way LG and Samsung is the way to go with monitors. Most companies in the world uses them.

I've just joined the 600T club and I have some doubts for when I build my rig:

Asus Sabertooth z77
Corsair H100i
Corsair 600T

I have 1 Bitfenix 200mm front fan for intake, a Corsair AF120 in the back for exhaust and a couple of Corsair SP120 for the H100i. My problem is that I don't know in which direction should be the fans blowing for an optimal airflow inside the case.

My 2 options are:

1. keep the rest of the fans as I posted before and put the h100i fans blowing air into the case

2. turn the rear AF120 as an intake and put the h100i fans as an exhaust (blowing air out of the case).

My main concerns are the temperatures of all the components (GPU/CPU/RAM...) and the amount of dust that can be stored in the case.

Since here I found a lot of experts configuring this case I thought somebody could help me a lil bit!thanks in advance!

What type of video card exhaust do you have? If it blows out the rear of your case, don't make the fan above it intake or you could be bulling video card exhaust into your case.

With the H100 at the top, intake could offer a few degree c cooler cpu temp, but will draw warm air into your case increasing your internal temps (possibly including your chipset, regulators and video card(s) temps along with hard drive temp). Again, this will most likely only be by 1-3c. You will also have to worry about dust a little more since the top of the case has no dust filter.

With the H100 mounted up top as exhaust, you will be drawing warm-ish case air into your H100 rad, making the cpu 1-3c warmer than it would be if you were using intake. However, the video card, chipset, regulators and hard drive all get a little cooler air so their temps will decrease a few degrees. Also, since you are exhausting through the H100 rad, you don't have to worry about dust.

Food for thought:

UPDATE!
So it's been a while since I have posted some pictures, Sorry about that frown.gif
I just ordered a H100i and I finally found a way to mount the 'Bitfenix Spectre Pro 200mm Fan', Now I have a couple of questions before I start transferring my parts over to this new case.
People say that you can't mount a Spectre Pro fan and have the HDD cage at the front at the same time, Yet according to my measurements it fits perfectly. I have been contemplating whether to put the HDD cage in the middle up next to the PSU.

Now I am a bit OCD when it comes to making my case look nice, But when ever I mount that cage it looks kind of... well crooked. It likes like it's on a 75 degree angle. Maybe it's just me but it really looks like it. Also when ever I mount the HDD cage ni the middle, The bottom HDD mount can't be removed unless I unmount the HDD cage completely. Is this meant to happen or have I mounted it wrong?

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Same here,very OCD when it comes to my case,the spectre pro fits flawlessly in my rig,i have seen others remove the hdd for better airflow,but if i did that my OCD would go into hyperdrive...lol..Initially mine looked crooked also,all i did was just press it back against the 200m fan and it was straightened....
