Also, I have two HDDs and an SSD in a single HDD cage. But now I have got another HDD and need to install it in the case. The problem is, I don't want to use another HDD cage. So I'm thinking of removing the SSD from the cage and put it elsewhere and need advice on where I can put it without hard-modding the case. Any ideas? Pictures would be nice.

Here is the current condition of my 600T:



Thanks a lot for your help. I really appreciate it. smile.gif

Why not add a single cage in front of the power suppy. Thats what most of us do. Personally I would add two 120mm fans to the top vs the 200mm. Example:
Afterthough Edit: You could also showcase your ssd on the front cage mount or you could remove it and stick it in the floor.

Also, do I keep the existing fans, or can I get better airflow if I replace the 2 stock 200mm fans with 4 AF120s (additional ones, added to your configuration)?

What would be your ideal fan configuration for an air cooled 600T? You may go wild with numbers and sizes of the fans.

Also, what's special about 3m tape? Will any normal tape do? Alternatively, can I screw the SSD to the screwhole(s) in front of the PSU?

Thank you very much for your help! smile.gif

I would personally suggest to only put one exhaust fan on the top in the back-most position. If you put one in the front-most position, you'll be robbing air from your CPU cooler's intake side.

Any tape would do, double sided or velcro. You should search the thread. Someone did this. Use zipties and put 120mm fan between 5,25"bays and bottem drive cage as intake this wil add additional cooling to graphics card. Top 2 120mm as exhaust and rear one too. You could cut a hole in the plexi glas en add another fan there.
For the ssd, mine is mounted on the 5,25bay for a nice view.

O right aircooling the cpu. Gyrael might be right. Though 2 different positions next to each other, doesn't the intake one get hot air from the exhaust?

Sorry to bud in with my opinion but I believe with this setup the 3 areas of your case are all competing for airflow from that lower front mounted fan, especially the CPU cooler & the top mounted fan, specifically because the CPU cooler in this case is trying hard to push it through the heatsink so there is turbulent air around there most likely but that top fan is impeding the intake fan on the cooler.




What I would do is find a way to give each zone its own fan / direct air flow that don't compete with each other. Which is a bit hard to do in these kind of cases because they usually have a Z kind of shape for air flow. I think a quick change without expense would be to make the top fan blow air in instead but some how make sure that the exhaust coming out the back isn't getting recycled (air duct).




BTW, I wish my case was near a window, I've always wanted to try this even though it looks a bit ghetto. Hehe

Not sure what you mean? I'm proposing putting a single fan on top instead of two.

I mean, this has been available for some time now by people like Dwood. I'm just surprised that none of the larger companies have seen the value of making sure that the more "average" computer users can get a hold of it.
