Little shot of the internals. The black bar is part of my desk.

Most people mount the HDDs the other way around, so the cables are coming from under the mobo plate and behind the HDD cages. Not sure if it must be done this way, can you try and see if it works better for fittment?

Edit:My guess is that's why you broke the tabs, it's not far enough back in the "sled"

I thought maybe I mounted them wrong because the cables look tacky. I hope I can get the damn HDs out. I tried yesterday but had no luck.

I'll bet the extra force you had to use to push your hdd in caused the breakage.

If you can get the drives out, call or email Corsair. They replaced a couple of my front bay covers for free (even after multiple attempts to pay for them.) They are really good about getting spare parts out quickly.

I feel your pain, I have broken the fan controller and the headphone jack on my 600T. I wish Corsair would sell more parts in their web store, would make it easier to deal with these type of problems.

On my first computer build years ago, I had managed to seat my ram and have both end click closed in the slots, backwards. I guess that notch is not fool proof, or guerilla proof because with enough force you can make anything fit. Lucky for me there was enough flex in the components that nothing broke, but was marveled how easily the ram went in the second time around when I spun the sticks around.

Lol, with all the complaints about case temps I am getting a little worried. I'll be running two 580 Lightnings in this thing and I do NOT want to use the mesh side....

if you remove the hdd bays and only leave the bottom hdd bay in, you have a 200mm (or 2x 120mm with some light modding) blowing straight onto the gpu's should be fine biggrin.gif

Accept I used a REAL dremel:

Lol wink.gif

I had to offset mine slightly for the H70 fan though.

Something to watch out for is vibrations. I was having a little trouble with vibrations and had to really tighten down the tabs to get rid of it. Once I installed the NZXT fan in the front the air flow was so good I decided to leave the front grill the way it is.


I am curious what others think, I replaced the 200mm top fan with 2 x Scythe SY1225SL12SH 120mm Slipstream. The read exhaust with Scythe DFS123812-3000 ULTRA KAZE and added a Scythe DFS123812-3000 ULTRA KAZE in the front optical bays as intake. The question is that I saw your mod removing the extra plastic on the top grill and front grill and was like what a great idea. I thought before I did it I would check my temps if I just removed the top and front grill all together. I figured it would show a drop similar to your mod, but I didn't really see a drop. Now I didn't thoroughly test it and I am new to this so I hope others might have some info that I don't know about or realize. I just checked my idle temps using CPUID hardwaremonitor. Thanks

^^^Yep, removing the plastic supports probably does very little if anything to increase airflow. I'm sure Corsair did a fair bit of testing and came up with a design that is adequate without needing to be "improved" with a dremel. I am very seriously contemplating doing something similar to Pascal1973 and making a duct for the front fan to the GPU's...
