[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 147

post #1461 of 16924
I've been following this thread for a few months now always checking for news on the 600T White edition. I managed to get it for $175 including tax and it is easily the greatest thing I have bought all year.

I won't post pics until I acquire all of my parts; although, it might be sometime because I am going to build my rig once I finally decide on Sandy Bridge or Bulldozer come the end of next month.

Lol, that's great! And good temp drops to boot. Good job.

Yeah, I ended up ordering the Force 3 120 last night. Should be here in about a week. I hate being at an APO overseas, mail takes like twice as long as it should. Couldn't find really any reviews for it unfortunately though, oh well, the numbers sound good.

Looks like you only have a single HDD at the moment? Why not ditch the extra HDD cages?

they rotating at 1500pm, i think that's enough...
I just ordered a 180mm Air Penetrator. Unfortunately after I placed my order I read a review on Martins Liquid Lab about the 120 Air Penetrators that was not very favorable, at least in a WC set up. Let me know how your temps respond to your new set up.

I'm doing an all black and red theme and I was wondering if I could get some help with lighting. I have a xigmatek 200mm red led fan for the front and then I got 4 120mm cm smoked red led fans for the top and h70 I have now. Should I get red or white lighting and should I get light bars or light strips? And here's the parts I ordered. Its an all EK setup smile.gif
EK Supreme HF red Plexiglas
EK FC6970 waterblocks nickel/acetal
Black Ice stealth 240 rad for the top
Phobya 200mm rad for the front
EK bay spin reservoir
Swiftech mcp655 pump
Primochill red lrt UV tubing
EK compression fittings
I'm going to try and do a push pull for the top if it fits but most likely not. I'm doing the push pull for the front and maybe what I want to do is put a third 120mm rad in the back exhaust internally if its fits as well. No idea though. Ill see that after I get it up and running and I'm going to a build log because I'm gona cut holes in the bottom of the case for a 120mm fan for under the drive cages and then paint the case a radeon red.

Sorry I didn't get back to you earlier but if you do decide to add the additional 120mm rad, you don't have to install anything outside. EK makes the RAD XT 120 that should fit the rear exhaust area perfectly. You will get some overlap with the 240 GTS if you go push pull with both fans mounted internally, but at least you have some options. I only see this rad on Aquatuning at the moment.

Computer is appreciably louder, though I think a lot of that is the 120mm fan I swapped in the rear exhaust...that thing moves a lot of air...but 5-7 deg C cooler (based on the core) for the CPU, and about 10 deg C cooler for the GPU. All in all, a solid upgrade.

As promised, here are pics of the LED fans in the side panel:



The grate cuts out a lot of the light so there's no glare on that second monitor, which I'm happy about.
The lighting on the side panel looks awesome. And your air flow looks like its working for you too, we still need more people with the mesh side panel to give this configuration a try to see if this consistently lowers temps.

Tough nut to crack. Might also revist the idea to cut the top of the case, to get three up top. Should be a straight forward square cut. You wouldn't be mounting the third fan to the case, you would be mounting it directly onto the rad and making a square hole so it could poke through the top. The plastic bezel would be a little tricky to cut clean but remember whatever you cut will still be obscured by the mesh top. And trimming down the ribs under the mesh top should be easy to do with a dremel.

The Force GT is pretty hot looking in red, however I think at this point I have plenty of colors in my case.

Yeah, paycheck was deposited this morning, so ordered mine too. Can't remember where, but I saw a review on it and it performed amazingly well.

Hi Guys.. a little bit of an airflow mod here

I wanted to get the case ready for Push/pull h100 but was concerned about the airflow in the top.. Here is a little guide on how to improve airflow by quite a bit.

Tools you will need.

A flat head screwdriver

a dremel (or similar) or a very sharp bread knife (because not everybody had a dremel)

This is the blade you will need
Capture2-1.jpg

Using a bread knife will take alot longer
Capture5.jpg

First remove the mesh from the frame, bending the metal back using the screwdriver.
Capture7.jpg

Mark which part of the frame you would like to remove, as you can see from the picture alot of airflow is lost because of the amount of frame.
Capture6.jpg

Start to cut the frame
Capture3-1.jpg

I would not advise cutting this struct because of the notch in the frame next to it, if you cut it then it could weaken the frame alot.
Capture-1.jpg

Now you can see how much more open space there is in the top.
weiscore.jpg

Clean the frame removing any plastic dust particals and re apply the frame in the same way it was removed.

As you can see there will be alot more airflow and you may even be able to fit slightly thicker fans in the top
