Disappointed that the case doesn't come with a bezel to go around a floppy drive at the front like my CM690 did. I've got a card reader that goes in there but no bezel to go around it frown.gif

Wow nice setup. Nice clean looking window, with clean insides. Your 460 matches your case just as good as mine matches my MOBO. Looks great, I like it. Might add a fan to the bottom of the 5.25 bay like you did. That Corsair fan looks like its meant to be installed like that.

Haha thanks for the input smile.gif

Oh, I see you have the same video card as me, nice nice smile.gif

That fan is just held there by double sided tape haha, but it lowerd the video cards temps by about 2-3 degrees.

Nice job

There use to be a MNPC guide but I can't find it :/ here's some similar - http://www.themodbrothers.com/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2536

The hardest part I found was cutting straight and marking straight lines, make sure your not lack of tools.

The tools I need were -

Jigsaw
Jigsaw Steel Blades
Right handed ruler
Tape
Pen
and yeah, the peice of plexi.

It's pretty straight forward really. This was my first ever window on my most exepensive case I've had haha.

First thing is, I don't feel like the 600T has has a ventilation problem, at least not in my system, and not for now, since I don't push it very hard.

But in spite of that, I'm thinking of doing a little improvement. The 600T comes with 1 intake fan, and 2 exhaust fans which leads me to think it has some negative case pressure. I'd just prefer it to have a neutral or slightly positive pressure.

So I'd like to add another intake fan, but where? I've seen pictures of several rigs that have a 120mm fan attached somehow to the back end of the drive bays. It looks like this position would move some air around in the case, mostly directing air toward the video card(s), but I doubt if it pulls much outside air into the case.

I'm thinking about putting a fan inside the optical drive bay, tight up against the screened bay covers. To get a fan flush against the covers, it needs to fit between the two cover mounting tabs which are about 99mm apart horizontally. But my system has two drives, in the top two positions of the bay, so my vertical clearance is even less, about 89mm. I might be able to squeeze in a 90mm fan, but if not, an 80mm fan would fit. The selection of 90mm fans is pretty limited anyway.

I'll probably start looking for something not too loud, maybe one with lower rpm, though there is an extra connection from the case's fan controller that I'm not using. Fan depth isn't a problem. One of the 80X80X34 Arctic Cooling F8's might work.

Anyway, just thinking out loud. smile.gif

i really would like to get this case..the only thing that concerns me is cooling ..this will be my first build i will not be overclocking i will have these specs plus 1-2 internal drives that i already have...do you think this will provide good enough cooling for the case..i dont really want to mod the case especially ince im already nervous about my first build

so with stock fans will cooling be good..also any ideas on where i could add more intake fans on this or will i even need it

I'm no expert, I can only tell you what I've experienced. I really think the 600T has plenty of cooling for a non-overclocked system as it comes.

My non-overclocked system is similar to yours, and even though I have upgraded the CPU cooler (with single fan), and I'm thinking about adding a case fan, it's not because I need more cooling now. I probably won't even need it in the future. I guess I just can't leave well enough alone.

With BIOS fan control enabled, the CPU fan runs at the lowest speed most of the time, under any of the profiles. The motherboard generally reports around 32 C in a 22 C room. I have the 600T's fan controller on low all the time as well. Running Prime95, the CPU does get up to the lower 60's, but I don't see that as a problem.

BTW- If you fill out your system specs in your profile, you won't have to list them in your posts.
