Yeah I used a digital voltimeter. You want to measure total system power draw? I use a kill-a-watt for that.

damn you.. i might have to buy a molex to fan adapter now and hide it down the back.. also waiting on corsair to start selling their 200mm 650D fans to go in

as for HD temps.. i have never had a problem with the drive being there.. there is quite alot of airflow around the case that helps be I guess only time will tell

Newegg has free shipping on the white 600t in their latest email. I changed my order from Amazon, since they don't seem to be getting any until late next week at the earliest.

Hi all,
Just built my new PC a couple of days ago, and I must say I'm quite impressed with my 600T and how easy it made the build. I ordered a new side panel today from Corsair, and my plans are to utilize the mesh insert and add fans for extra cooling, much like DOOOLY has in his pics a few replies earlier in this thread.

What fans are most people are using with the mesh side panel?

dude, I got like 5 of those lying around, I would email you one but I can't get the attachment thingie to work.





Allright, so here is how it looks. I apologize for the abuse of vibrancy and contrast, but the images looked bland so I sprinkled some MSG into them.
Here is the loop, not quite the triangle I was going for
5716824461_1d02933fc0_b.jpg

Here is the obligatory upshot for those of you who go for that sort of thing
5717390270_dc11fdb0c7_b.jpg

And here is the wallpaper shot
5716825063_504aeec78a_b.jpg
So phase one is complete. My vid cards temps are good, considering I couldn't do push pull on the rad and I have the GTS overlapped a little bit by the H70. They idle around 35C and after an hour of Kombustor the hotter of the two cards at the end of the loop hit 56C overclocked. As far as ROI, I am happy with the added performance boost. I was able to add another 100HZ to my GPU core from my previous best OC (while being rock solid stable); I need every ounce I can get with my Eyefinity set up. On games that I could play at decent fps with no AA, I can now play with 8x AA and run 10-15 fps faster.

So what did I learn? A lot. But the most important thing I learned is thermal grease will stain your mousepad:mad:.

Nice!

By the way, is your case painted blue or is that a trick of the light? If so, do you have any more pics showing the exterior?

I'm planning on doing a very similar color (as it appears in the photo, at least) to mine, along with a few mods to the fan controller and airflow, and would love to see what it would roughly look like. CorsairGeorge's "Imperial Guard" mockup got me itching to paint.

It's funny. I was researching what video card to get and I came across the articles on flashing the HD 6950 to be a HD 6970. I had a hard time finding 6950 reference cards, but I finally found one locally and ordered another one in. Both are Sapphire HD 6950 reference cards. I only have one installed atm, and I have flashed it. So far it's running great with the extra shaders unlocked and chugging along at 880MHz GPU and 1375 MHz memory. I'm not planning on overclocking them any higher. I just hope that when the second card arrives it accepts the BIOS update and runs as well as the first one does.

That's really great man. You did an awesome job. It's too bad about the red rad though. Ironic that it may have gone with the red stripes on the old video card coolers. Great job with the routing I think. If you were looking for a triangle, maybe a couple of 45 degree fittings would have helped? Do they even have those?

no paint, just mixing different color temperature light sources that makes the exterior look cool and the interior warm. If you do paint please take some pics!

Yeah, blue mobo, red rad, black case, some purple lighting. I am one component away from a bag of skittles. In my defense I never planned on any of these add ons, they just sort of happened. Going forward I will try and stick with black and red trim.
When I got my first 6950 I did the exact same thing, unlocked it and set it to stock 6970 speeds, and 880/1325 worked great. When I got the second card and did CFX, I couldn't run it stable at those speeds anymore (at least on air). Let me know how you make out and if CFX makes a difference.

Really really nice setup you got there. I've never seen anyone have the reservoir down there before but it looks sick. Way to go man.
