upgrade to the newer fans.. but tbh the main problem is that both of the 200mm fans have to pull and push air through 2 lots of grills and that is whats causing bad airflow and more noise.. there is a few mods you can make to improve it greatly

You shouldn't have to upgrade anything. When I bought the ugly HAF 932 I had, the cooling was more than adequate and I never had to buy any extra fans. When I bought my RV02 I never had to buy any extra fans. Why should I have to upgrade to newer fans just because the company fails to produce a good design.

I love how this case looks and I really wish I would have been able to keep it. But when I had to use side fans to make the temps anywhere near manageable, that's just bad design. I'll give Corsair another chance when they can produce a case I don't have to mod the hell out of to make it cool well.

I also like how, when I asked on the Corsair forum what the problem might be, they kept trying to blame it on my graphics card. Even though my card design is terrible for my other case, it still cools way better than the stock 600t I had (which had the upgraded fans I might add).

I enjoy the other Corsair products I have but when I had to spend $180 + $40 for new fans and then another $30 for side fans, I just gave up. Maybe I get back to this case once I pick up the water cooling kit.

Form vs. function. Both at the same time are hard to achieve without $$$. I think this case has great form (as compared to your "ugly" HAF 932), and great function in some areas...just airflow isn't one of them (imo) without a few rather simple modifications. This case cost $125 (for me, after MIR), plus $40 for the side panel, plus $30 for the fans. For $30ish more, I could've gotten one of the Silverstone Raven cases, but I like the look and the cable management in this case way better. With an Antec Big Boy in the front and a replacement 120mm fan in the back, temps are pretty decent for constant GPU/CPU f@h.

Yea I did love the massive amount of room behind the motherboard for cable storage.

This is some excellent work mate. You should be proud smile.gif

Was it difficult and did it need any modding fitting the front 200mm rad with the push-pull config?
What fans did you use?
And for personal curiosity, would it be possible to fit the front rad upside down? (meaning the tubes routing right under the 5.25 cage)

I 'd love some more pics of the build, maybe from angled views wink.gif

Enjoy it mate ! smile.gif

Yes, the original 600T fans were designed for low noise primarily, and run at about 700 RPM. The new ones are designed for higher airflow and run at about 1000 RPM. They're louder, but now are about the same noise levels our competitors in the price range.

Thanks for the compliment thumb.gif

The 200mm rad is very easy to install, it depends really which fan(s) you use. I used 200mm NZXT fans which required me to create mounting holes. If I had used the stock fans I probably could have gotten away with no mods. The 200 rad dimensions fit into the space with room to spare, you more then likely could rotate 180 degrees with the fittings on the top no problem.

I will post some more pics soon; I need to take a break from trying to OC with this new mobo (its full of surprises, some good, and some bad.)headscratch.gif

Cesar, which 200mm rad are you using? The Phobya one?

Do you when the new fans will be available at retailers like ncix or newegg?

Oh, I also modded my cooler master 200mm megaflow to have white LED's lol. I took the LED's off the stock corsair and put them on my megaflow biggrin.gif

Good job on the fan. Looks pretty sweet.

so far i absolutely love this case. although i wish there were more tie-down points behind the mobo tray.

Aren't they great cases? I just love the layout and the cable management.

If you're a big gamer, I would recommend 120Hz over IPS unless you can get a 120Hz IPS (which I don't think is available). The picture on an IPS is much nicer, but the response time is higher than a standard monitor. Plus, with 120Hz, you can get some 3D happening if you're into it and I heard people say they get a better response from 120Hz for smoother gaming. I can fully understand why they want this. I've stopped using V sync because it can seriously impact frame rates and even make them drop below 60Hz in some games. So, I'm putting up with tearing to get the higher frame rates. Tearing really sucks. I can't believe after all these years they haven't come up with anything better to deal with it.

Still on about that eh? There is a range of temps that are adequate operating temps for all the hardware in the case. If the case keeps the temps in this range then the airflow is fine. The 600 series does just that. It may be in the upper end of the range, but it's still within the range. You don't need to add any fans or do any mods unless you want to be on the low end of the temp range. If that's all you want from a case, then perhaps the 600 series is not your cup of tea (although it looks to me like the looks and functionality have snared you). Lots of people have bought this case and not modded anything at all. IMHO, this is not a bad design. It's obviously not made for maximum air flow. BTW, my roommate has a HALF X and I think it looks pretty good (not my choice, but still pretty nice). Very similar to the HALF 932. Can't really compare a full tower to a mid tower though.
