I have fitted in 3 6970's before (see my pics in the thread you can see i slotted the 3rd between the original 2) and there was barely any room for airflow between them.

the air cooling in the 600t can be great depending on how you manage your cables and set up the fans but if you do intend to run 3 dual slot cards then I would recommend buying the aftermarket side window that comes with the mesh which can carry 4 120mm fans.

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?

So it's hard to see, but the MSI board I'm using has double-stacked SATA ports at right angles to the motherboard itself. The one that you see in the white port is actually two (front and back), and those are going to the hard drives (those are the SATA 6gbps ports). The DVD cable is coming from the black SATA port, the second from the bottom, which is almost completely hidden by the sleeve on the GPU power cables. If you view the image full size, you should see what I'm describing...the DVD cable actually curls around the two HD sata cables. All 3 cables are white, so they kind of blend together, heh.

Fake edit - I don't have the side panel yet, but given my experience with GPU cooling thus far, I would concur with the benefit of one if running multiple GPUs.

Thanks I finally saw it and edited it into my previous post redface.gif. If builders reading this have any input on arranging a 5 drive rig...stacked or side by side? I would love to know the best arrangement for air flow.

Thanks! Ill try to find for the pics now. I'm buying the 600T SE since i like the White/Black theme and that case comes 2 side panels. The mesh one has space for 4x 120mm fans on the side so i think it would be perfect.

Nice looking rig. What's the duct over the hard drive area? Is it for airflow or cosmetics? And how did you make it? Very nice looking.
post #1276 of 18196
The duct is made of plexiglass, i bent it 90 deg, had a custom sticker plotted for it. Behind the Corsair logo is a glowpad,it lites up the logo.This rig used to have 4 GTX470 on stock coolers,real ppd monster.....i used a 140mm fan to blow some fresh air directly on to the cards.I made the duct for cosmetic and airflow reasons obviously....

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
no prob, posting a build log would be more then enough thanks. When I measured I based clearance on a 30mm thick rad (such as a BlackIce GTS) to see if it would fit so if you have something similar you should be good.

Congrats on the price, the fans are supposed to be on sale at the Corsair Webstore by the end of this month.

The stock fans don't really penetrate deep into the case, I would probably keep the hardrives stacked by the 200mm to keep them cool and use the side panel fans (if you have the SE) to cool the mobo area.

Even with the side panel fans, stacking the cards with zero space in between, expect an inferno. I wanted to use both of my 16X slots and tried that config with my mobo, while gaming I was over 90C, with the side panel fans going. Even if you can stand to have the fans at 100%, I think at some point you will need to build a WC loop.

Thanks---I have the SE coming. Any recommendations for fans for mesh side panel?

biggrin.gif After seeing your rigs with 4 GPUs in it, i think ill have no problem fitting my 3x 5870 in it. I'll use the mesh side with 4x 120mm fan on it as well for some fresh intake.

Edited: Also the duct looks very nice, maybe Corsair would make it as optional accessories to buy in the future /wink @ CorsairGeorge wink.gif.

They were oc-ed to 800mhz @ 1.06V, i did not use a side intake, i placed a 140 inside the case on top of the psu. The rig was folding 24/7 and temps got up to 100C on the Gpu's/...... No stability issues though. And for all you guys that overpower your rigs,i used just 1 Corsair HX1000 psu, i made 1 set of custom pci cables, 12V never got below 11.98V at a total constant load of 1100AC Watts at the wall-socket.
Corsair doesn't only make great Cases, their Power supplies are excellent too!
