Thanks guys.

Well of course since I'm a dummy, I made a slight miscalculation (as usual) with locating the standoffs. laughingsmiley.gif

I underestimated how far downward the MB extends past the standoff holes, so the edge of the board just contacts my divider/shroud.

At this point I guess I have two options. There's room above to move the entire tray about 10mm upwards, but it would mean drilling and tapping new holes in the tray, making the backside look ugly with the double holes. The other way is cut a slot on the shroud so that it goes around the board. I'm thinking of going the cut-shroud route because I need a cutout there to run the USB & front i/o anyway.

Another minor issue is 8 of 9 standoffs line up. The last one is almost there, but I cannot be bothered to fix it to be honest.

Just throwing out an idea. What if you bent the shroud upwards, or towards you. This would give you the space needed to route the wires while also hiding the wires. You could just throw in a small piece to see how it would look.

I have not yet made a shroud for my 600t but I do have a spare piece of acrylic sitting around. I was thinking of making it look just like yours, but adding a lip/extension by the lower ports to cover up the crappy looking wires I have there.

Thanks, that lip is essentially what I ended up doing. I destroyed the paint after cutting and bending it so that needs to get redone

And I'm unsure if the shroud will work with the default 600T setup (I believe it should minus the HDD cage), but here's the dimensions of mine to give you a starting point.

At this height the shroud rests on top of the PSU, but also renders the default HDD cage unusable because of it's height.

Any issues with that paint job? I was thinking of doing something similar but I was worried paint would clog up the small holes and restrict airflow.

No issues,

I took out the dust filter and cut off all the cross bars from the plastic insert as you can see from earlier photos. I did not paint the dust filters if that is what mean. Those are the things that restrict air flow in my opinion. I do don't buy expensive cans of compressed air to keep my computer dust free. I just use a small air compressor. No issue with air flow or temps. This build has 14 fans all running at low RPM. This computer is very quiet and cool.

I like to run the Cooler Master jetflow 120 fans. These fans max out at 2300 RPMs , they can push massive amounts of air. At low RPM they still push a large amount of air.

Good amount of activity in here lately. I used some of the recent posts for inspiration and started to paint a few of the grills on my 600T. I got the top and front painted, dried and thrown back on. The optical drive bays are drying as we speak. Next up will be tidying up the inside and getting some more orange accents in there.

The 600T is still a great case. biggrin.gif

I'm nearly finished on mine as well. Since I have another project, this is going to hold an older build, so nothing special going in. Though it doesn't mean it can't look nice. I've always loved the shiny silver heatsink look, so I bought an air cooler and RAM-sinks for that effect and stripped the blue motherboard heatsinks to raw silver. I just need to do something with the rest of the blue accents on the board to get the full silver look I'm after.

Made the support bracket for the GPU so I was finally able to put a card in. Still could not escape the dreaded GPU sag, so I may just make another bracket to fix that.

Annddd heres the temporary setup.... yes I know it's disgustingly messy. laughingsmiley.gif It's essentially a test bench for now because I was really curious if my cables for the rear I/O would fit through the tiny hole in the rear or if I turned the entire project into a fire hazard. So I removed the shroud to make things easier, then just threw in the parts and some junk fans so I could plug it in and turn it on.

Once everything is finalized, I'll be custom sleeving the PSU with some leftover MDPC sleeve. But it's an old HX750, which is semi-modular, I'm not too excited. Since it's an old system, I'm not going to buy a new full mod PSU for it.

All the panels on, and the new rear look with a single notch hole for I/O. Enough room to run plenty more cables.

Yes both panels have to come off to reach the rear I/O.

Practicality is overrated. laughingsmiley.gif

Thanks. I'm contemplating if I should change the color of the interior to matte black or something else.

"I'm contemplating if I should change the color of the interior to matte black or something else."

You have a smooth flat surface........kind of like a portrait canvas.............what about a some type of cool image using UV paint that spans the whole surface, add some cool UV lighting and now you have a custom case that really pops.
