Its not great for GPU cooling i'll say that. My GTX 670 runs too hot without a side panel fan. Its a decent case but there's others that tempt me if i was to build another rig. Most things are customisable on the 600T and its a great built case. Do like mine.

I would leave it white. White is an amazing color to work with in any theme because you can make it look like any color simply by controlling the color of the light source. You do have to be wary of how things cast shadows for this to work well though.

Thanks:)

I love my 600T but in working with it for the better part of 2 years there are a few things that, had I known I was doing in the future, I may have re-evaluated.

I bought it for:

The cable management system (its very easy to route and you get a really clean look, plus improved airflow)
The size (I didn't want to shell out for a full tower and it was the right size I needed at the time)
The filtering (sounds like a weird choice, but my experience with the dust filters has been nothing short of fantastic, keeps the case very clean inside)
and The look (I really liked the case's appearence)

At the time I was running a single GPU. Once I moved to SLI, I was still happy with it. My GPUs were not having any issue. I even installed a CLC (h100i) and it was still a rather roomy case.

Where I DID start running into issues, was installing my custom loop. Does this case have space for a full loop (CPU + dual GPU blocks, pump, res and rads)? Absolutely. Do you have to do a little work to get there? Yes.

Even with the hard drive cages removed from the stock spots, cutting the case, and removing the bottom part of the 5.25" bay, the case got very tight, very fast. In the case's defense I was putting a Monsta 240 rad in the front (mounting is only for 1 x 200 stock) and a 360 ST30 in the top (mounting is only for 2 x 120 or 1 x 200 stock) , but still.

I would say, that if you are running a single or dual GPU on air, then this case is fantastic and if you replace the stock fans and arrange the HDD cages (or remove them) to maximize your air flow, then you will be more than happy with the case.

If you have more than dual GPUs (card heat could be an issue), or you are planning or running a large custom loop (space becomes a concern), then you may want to figure out your options.

To be clear, I don't regret buying this case for a second. Its a rockstar! 99% of people here though will recommend that if you get this case, get rid of the stock fans ASAP. My 2c. Hope it helps.

is there anyone here with a dual CoolerMaster Mega Flow 200mm fan setup in the front?

I tried to fit two and just couldn't really get it to work properly without massive modifications. Maybe they are just a bit thicker than the stock ones?

I am running dual 200mm bitfenix spectres and they are a big, thick fan. Required the same modding as the stock 200s up front, some drilling to move the stock 200mm down and then a couple new holes for the top one as well.

After pretty much everyone is in favour of the CoolerMaster Mega Flow being the best all round 200m case fan. Does anyone know if you can get ones with white or without LEDs and if not, has anyone ever changed the LEDs before?

Cheers

You could always try to resolder different coloured LED? Maybe it will work? I'm not a pro or anything just a suggestion.

As I recall it's quite loosely fitted.

New GFX for my rig, GTX770. Returned 780Ti immediately when I realize it is WAYYYYY to overkill for 1080p gaming, the GTX770 has titan style cooler too. Yay!

Pretty pissed with the fan controller... I can't turn the fan speed for my high performance SP120 to less than 80% of it's original speed. Very audible at night when i try to sleep, need a NZXT Sentry 2 I guess...

All right, I figured out a bit too late that I was gonna install it so couldn't be bothered moving down the bottom fan. Plus I don't have a mesh left which would make it really complicated to attach.

if you want one without LED's you can just cut them off. Is what I did with one of mine.

You could resolder different LED's on it as well if you want another color.

Sweet rig man, gotta love the pretty much all black color scheme!

What in the world is in the front of your case though? Looks kinda like a mix between a toy and a Philips wake-up light? biggrin.gif
