Sounds like you have an efficient set up. I am pretty sure I never had that happen to any of my fan configurations. Can you post some of your temps (CPU/GPU/NB/HDD) with ambient? I am curious because I have wondered if the side panel fans ruined the air flow in the case, causing turbulence and creating pockets. It would be funny if the stock config with more powerful fans was the most efficient. Not saying it is, but I think because of all concerns with case temps, someone needs to do a thorough write up of all the configurations, using the best scientific technique they can muster. Alas, I cannot commit to the time needed to do this justice (graphs/spreadsheets/diagrams/photos etc.)

I am willing to help it along though. If anyone thinks they could do a great job with testing and a write up, and lives in the US, I might be willing to donate whatever fans needed to test out the different configs. Anyone seriously interested in making this happen?

I just wish they included better fans with this case. These temps are worse than my Raven and old 932.

yeah im still playing with fan configs and swapping out fans ever so often...


Just ordered a white silverstone fm121, and a white zalman sharkfin. The sharkfin is for the pull side of my rad (going to try it out) and the silverstone fm121, eh well I just wanted one lol. I think maybe switching all my CM Excalibur fans to all white silverstones might look pretty cool....all white fans, nah meen!......ill let you guys know how I like'em!



btw, Since "everyone" says teh sharkfin is a better pull fan, think 2 of those would be ideal up front as intake fans? Or would you want 2 pushing fans?

Ok, so I'm prepping my 600T SE for my build tomorrow and I noticed that the standoffs are preinstalled in the case. The problem is that the middle standoff has some weird ball where the screw hole should be and it sticks up higher than the rest because of it. What is up with that? Is that ball supposed to stick into the hole on the mobo and no screw go into it? I just have never seen that before. Please let me know whats the deal with this....

Thanks guys, OCN always comes through for me!

Indeed, the peg fits into one of the holes in the mobo in place of a screw.

its a great feature IMO, because it keeps tension on the MoBo as your installing it. its a nice thing

I remember being perplexed by this when I first built my rig. Great feature, should be implemented on more cases.

i agree!

Yes, I thought the single "locating" standoff was a very good idea and helped keep the I/O ports snugly press against the shield while I installed the other screws. God help you if you have a non standard mobo though...

@ CesarNYC, I only noticed that phenomenon after all the fans were de-grilled. I don't think it done it before. Removing the front mesh was worth it anyway to get rid of the horrible noise that the fan made. Some fans really don't like obstructions to the gas path right in front of the blades and the stock 200mm was one of them. Before, over 600 rpm and the noise level was (personally) unbearable but now I can run it up full speed.

I was going to go with a Fractal Designs R3 but then i found this sweet deal that made the 600t the same price.
$125 after rebate + free shipping
