In my opinion this case CAN provide adequate airflow. Personally, my temps are great. Unfortunately you have to find a delicate balance between noise and airflow. I don't mind my computer being slightly loud, so I have 2200 rpm excaliburs cranking at all times.

I hope there isn't any problems with this case either. I just ordered a new and probably my last system for a while. I went for as quiet as I could with the money I had to spend. I hope its quiet and cool.

Most people put the HDD's in with the cables to the back. My WD Green drive is 10mm longer on the back. It could be pressing the holder out and keeping it in the cage. I'm guessing if this is what is happening, you pushed in on the tabs too hard trying to get them to release.

Edit: Don't you hate it when you answer something before reading all the posts doh.gif

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

Check under load, if this case can't keep you cool under idle, well it would have almost zero airflow. Use Prime95 and Furmark make the most heat possible.

I'm currently only running three Excaliburs. Two in a push/pull exhaust config on my H50 and there is one you can't see in the top 5.25" bays blowing cool air across the top of the motherboard and towards the H50 rad. I have four more Excaliburs waiting to go in. I am going to replace both 200mm fans with two Excaliburs each. Waiting until I'm not so lazy to slightly mod the front intake to accept 2x 120mm.

To avoid double posting my images on this thread, the following link will show you my most recent photo of my setup. If you want to see other photos of my setup you can refer to the first post in the thread and you can find links to my pictures there. http://www.overclock.net/13774738-post1655.html

I'll take some photos when I complete the mod and make a small how to. However, it shouldn't be more than removing the front cover of the 600T and using a dremel to cut two 120mm spaces in the front of the case. Drill a few holes to mount the fans, etc...

I did the mod. There are many different ways, but I chose to keep the pattern of the holes from the front grill. I just mocked it up and drilled them out, and made some mounting holes for the 2 120mm fans.

Here is my small mod link.
