Have you thought about the 200 side rad? You could try your original idea and mount it outside. I think that would look pretty sweet. It would be cool to make some hinges on the rear of the side panel too so you could open it like a door with the rad on it (mounted inside or out).

Lol, purchase another windowed side panel and add an outside rad on the right side too.

Remove the optical drive bays and cover the front of the computer with rads. Get a slim optical drive and custom mount it under the front usb connectors/fan controller or just use a USB external optical drive if you ever need it.

Are you more concerned with your cpu, case or video card temps? I've heard some people complain they can't get "good" overclocks from the HD6950 even with water cooling. I thought you were happy with the results of your water rig?

I had some free time, so I re-did my wirings and made it way cleaner. Added a nzxt white led strip around the case, and added in white cable extensions for the psu 24pin and gpu's















I wake up loving this case more and more everyday <3

you want it to be hot swapable as in removable?

this is 3 in to 2 5.25" bays

but if you want a normal adapter with dampening get the sharkoon vibe fixer pro

I thought so too, but after installing the 200mm rad the temps are not all that amazing. I saw my GPU hit 57ºC (the hotter of the two). My set up is in a room that can get pretty warm (it was 29ºC when I ran Kombustor), and of course there is the possibility I botched something on the install, but I think its because of the compromises I had to make with the install. I will post a pic of my latest config to show what I mean.

Yeah, I am not happy with the GPUs. I am now getting a look at what summer time temps are going to be. I am able to run 950/1450 with 1.28V, which I know is a ton of V but anything less is just not 100% stable. I am happy with the speeds, but can do better with the temps from what I read in the WC forum. I am getting about the same performance out of my custom WC loop that I am getting from my H70, which is either a credit to Corsair or I really need to reseat my blocks.

does any one know if the H100 will fut OK in the 600t case?

I think it have to go with raid inside case and fans on the top pulling air up and out.

I hope it all go inside but I don't think it will.

what do you all think?

Good Choices, but the back of it has 2 Sata ports


I may be stuck using another one of these silver stone adapters:


I wish they would make a 5.25 to 3.5 adapter that had card reader functions built into the adapter.

What is the best way to flip the large Exhaust fan on the top to an intake. I notice the front fan has an adapter, can I get more adapters from Corsair?

to be honest no 3.5" drive exceeds sata 2 anyway.. I can link some hotswapable 2.5" to 5.25" bays if you like

I can only answer according to the announced specs, but should fit no problem. Its thin enough (less then 30mm), and the 600T does have the standard 15mm rad spacing. The only thing/wrinkle here is if your familiar with this case, you will have to mount the two fans for the H100 in the "crawl space" under the mesh grill. So it would go mesh grill, fans, case, H100 rad. Of course you lose the 200mm fan on the top, and along with it the lights. I think the vendor has stated more then once they won't make anything that will not fit in their cases so it's a safe bet.

Definitely try and do something with the 600t. I really want someone else to do something spectacular because I really have no idea what I want to with mine. I want to get it painted a chrome white and get some custom side panels made up but I don't have the money since I ordered $600 worth of watercooling parts......Heres an idea I have for the side panel. Not the exact same thign but similar.

In the end, it will probably still come up short of what I want, but it won't cost me much to do and I will get more performance out of this case.
The second option is keep the 600T as is, maybe even revert some of it back to stock, and use an free standing external rad box like the one Danger Den offers. It would cost as much as buying another 600T, but I would have all the space I could ever want. This idea is growing on me, but I don't know if I would like the look of it connected to the 600T.
My third option is start from scratch and buy a "boutique" case. Mucho dinero, 500 bucks or so. Two that I liked were the XSPC H1 and the Case Labs M10. This would take me some time to put together, but more then likely would end up with a redonkulous rig.
I want to OC and stay quiet, have to pick one.......

That is a sick paint job. If you are going to look for inspiration, a lambo is not a bad place to start.


5787514920_0721707749_b.jpg
So this is what I am working with. I don't think its a bad set up, its just not a great one. I thought about it and no matter what I just can't fit a thick 360 rad, which is the bare minimum to build a quiet WC set up. I have some overlap on top, and no space to do push pull. I could mount onto the side panels, but I don't know about adding all that weight/vibration on the doors. Plus I have Mothra and Ghidorah for children and can just see them drop kicking the side of the case for laughs.
More I think about, the external rad box looks like a solid choice. If I tuck it behind something so its out of sight, I could live with it. I can't think of any other cons. If I go external I could finally use the window I bought, which means I could get one of those new Corsair lighting kits.....hmmmm
