What are the specifications of your planned loop?

Btw, some of thes builds are awesome! Good work.

God I hope not. According to the website its copper fins and brass chambers, no mention of aluminum. Is that the Antec 200 rad you are thinking about?
I am adding this to a 240mm rad that I use for GPU cooling.

I also found interesting that you more then likely could mount a/the third fan, under the mesh top with a simple mod. Was Corsair trying to implement a 360 rad area but later scrapped the idea?

Per the pic attached, you do have approximately five inches to play with from the end of the second 120mm fan to the edge of the power/reset button. You could cut a hole through the top of the metal case and plastic trim piece (that is sandwiched by the two plastic end cap pieces on the 600T), creating an opening for this third fan to sit flush with the stock fan opening. Trim down the ribs under the mesh grill (like the other side the stock 120 fans sit under) and you would be in business. Best of all with the stock grill in place you couldn't tell at all there was any modification. Me likey, I am tempted to try, maybe next mobo upgrade I would give it a shot.

Hey man I cant thank you enough this is exactly what make OCNET so fricken awesome!
I'll be pulling the trigger on my build on Wednesday so its great to know i can save some cash on RAD etc.. I'll try put together a pretty little log to showcase my baby when shes done.....

MANY THANKS dude really appreciate it

Love how clean this case is. Cable management system is downright sexy. Loved the PSU and optical drive mounts. The one cable going from the optical to the SSD could be avoided if I connected a second cable to my modular PSU for SATA power, but I managed to get by with just one modular cable (3x sata power) on the PSU (includes a 24pin, 8pin, 6+2 pin, and 6 pin in the non-modular part).
PNT99.jpg

Picked one up from Newegg for the $125 deal. Wound up being $135 because of tax (I'm in NJ) but made up for that by getting it in 1 day.

I've been experiencing increased GPU load temps (my GPU is basically under heavy load all day, as I'm running F@H nearly 24/7) after switching from my Antec 900 (first release with next to zero cable management). Reasonably certain this is because of less case airflow compared to the 900. Thinking about replacing the rear 120mm fan, but pretty sure most of the issue is the GPU area of the case. Ordered the side door from Corsair, thinking about going 120mm fans with mesh...either 2 or 4...will probably do some testing to see whether intake, exhaust, or 2in/2out is the best configuration (unless someone's already verified with their own testing). Case fans are plugged into the mobo, not using the fan controller but my thought was to give that a go for the fans on the side panel...anyone with experience with this? Not sure if the draw would be too much.
Any other suggestions?

GPU is an MSI twin frozr 560 ti. Was thinking about removing the second drive bay entirely (only have a 1TB platter and 128gb SSD) and putting them all in one cage, but not sure how much that will help as compared to the side panel replacement (whenever that arrives, heh...end of May, hopefully?).

Not much luck with replacing the 200mm fans, huh? Saw the link from CoolCox but can't find any retailers, so not sure what the deal is there...but 100/140 CFM on those 200mm fans would be very nice. Any news on when the 200mm fans from the SE will be available for sale?

nice rig! but get them cables braided!

here are a few suggestions
get the power cable for the graphics card moved up to the next rubber hole
get both hard drives in a single cage (and remove the un used cage)
run another power lead for the HD's
and the black braided cable (by the ram) make come through the hole by the top fan or out from behind the motherboard

Thanks for the suggestion on the graphics card power. I built this rather late at night (a little quickly so I could get some sleep) and completely missed that.

The black braided cable by the ram is a PWM splitter for the two fans on the CPU. I didn't know there was a hole by the top fan, but I'll take a look to see if it will fit. The one thing I was worried about running it in front of the fan was it interfering with the fan's airflow in some fashion, hence why I tucked it parallel to the motherboard.

Not sure which cables you're recommending I sleeve or where I sleeve them. The modular cables are all sleeved, though it's hard to see in the shot (not great quality, only had my droid X to take a pic with). The only cables I could see to sleeve would be the separate power cables as they come out of the PSU, to sleeve them together for the 3 inches before they go behind the motherboard...anything else?

If I do wind up moving the two HDs to the same bay (I most likely will), I will definitely need two SATA power cables (one to the optical, the other to the two HDs), so that will take care of that.

Compared to what I came from, this case was a dream to work with.

Guys i have a question! Anyone here running 3x 2 slots GPU in this Graphite case (in my case 3x 5870)? I'm using the NZXT Phantom atm and i'm thinking of switching to the 600T SE because the Phantom can't take 3x cards in it. Also how is the air cooling in this case?

Very nice looking rig. I hope I do as well with mine(this week). Can you tell me how you ran the hard drive sata data cables? I don't see them plugged into the mobo...only the white one for the DVD burner.

edit: question for any one...I will have 5 hard drives in the new rig...suggestions on where to position the cages for best air flow?

edit again: I see those rascals now but would like input on how best to arrange a case with 5 drives...stacked or side by side?
