Looks like they have a QC problem and the official EK response/remedy is rubbing some people the wrong way. Just a heads up.
I have a copper/acetal CPU block and a res/pump top from EK. After seeing the response to the plating defects from the CEO, I am compelled no to do business with them any more. That being said, I don't see any reason to use nickel plated blocks in the first place. Bare copper is always going to transfer heat better than nickel plated copper anyway. It may look "bling", but the extra cost is not worth it IMHO.

Just got my 600T SE in today! Too bad I'm still waiting on GPU's, SSD, fans, lights, PSU...

- a custom loop beats everything, but there is a risk of leaking, the hassle, the space, and the cost.


When you say plastic grill, Do you mean the plastic bits that go accross the front/top panels? If so, i am planning on removing those too, - in the name of increasing air flow.
I also cut out the front and rear honeycomb grill - MASSIVELY increased airflow and decreased noise -and you cant even see that they have been removed

I am planning on mounting a h100 up top, but the fans would need to go through two fan grills, overall very restrictive, going to have to find a way to overcome that - i would cut out some of the top 2 x 200 fan grill but i have a feeling, if i did this, the radiator would pull on the remaining metal and cause it to sagg.

That's what I did up top.

Also, Darkcyde's immediately following shows what I did with the front panel - http://www.overclock.net/computer-ca...l#post13666577

Still thinking about replacing the top 120mm with 2x120mm, and possibly putting a 140 or 2x120mm in the front, if I can fit them/mount them easily. Don't know if removing the front honeycomb would prevent that. Someone mentioned hot glue?

How reliable are the all in one loops? I have the same concerns about leaking, though I suppose to a lesser extent. We will see what the budget allows for...but am thinking that the real benefit the Corsair coolers have is ease of installation/a bit more peace of mind than a traditional watercooling setup, without the flexibility to add GPU cooling (currently the hottest item in my case, so...would probably be interested in liquid cooling the gpu if I went this route).

Thanks, I plant on doing the same thing, i hope it doesn't weaken the top too much

the all one one Corsair watercoolers, - its pretty much almost impossible for them to leak, i have only ever heard of it happening once and corsair replaced the dudes entire system

custom loops, higher change of leaking, but if you are very careful you can do it safely.

All in one loops seem to be just as reliable as any another cooling solution out there. The Corsair forums show people do have their problems, but from what I see most spring from incorrect installation. For the money my H70 is best cooler I have ever used. The major advantage to all in one cooling is price (like 1/6th the price of a custom) and maintenance free operation (install it and try to keep it from getting dusty, that's about it). But if you want liquid GPU cooling you don't have this option, yet.
The custom route is fraught with expensive and confusing choices, but is more robust and can handle additional components/upgradeable. Going in I was worried about leaks but after seeing how fittings work I would think leaks happen because of either serious manufacturer defects that would show up right away on a leak test, or you did something really silly on the install. You do have to worry about cleaning out your custom loop regularly, which can mean just changing the water to dismantling everything and scrubbing the channels in the water blocks. I personally like the Corsair Hydro line, but they don't have any other offerings besides CPU cooling.

I'm remotely considering an XSPC Rasa 240mm kit. Does anyone have a thick radiator mounted inside the case? From what I've read, you either need a thick 240mm radiator, a 360mm radiator, or multiple radiators to effectively cool both CPU and GPU. I'm assuming you mount the radiator inside the case, fans outside the case (but under the pop-out metal piece on this case) blowing cold air from outside onto the reservoir...but I am completely ignorant about watercooling.

as a rough guide:
i had a cheap 360mm radiator, with push pull fans @ 1000rpm (pretty silent)

this kept my gtx 480 at 55c load
and my 2500k@5ghz at 70c load

so i would say minimum and normal 360, or a very high performance 240 mm

in a 6006, for a 360mm you might need to mode it
a thick 240mm wont fit

some random pic




more on the inside when i get my new hardware
have the same Problem i think the fan controllor is designed like this, so that the buttons arent sticking out too much, but that's just what i htink.

yeah, I think i might just drill a new set of holes into the side of the controller when i get time
