[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 223

post #2221 of 18196
Hi,

I'm waiting for my Black 600T to arrive. And before it arrive, I just want to ask a few question:
1. Is it possible to mount a Silverstone AP141 or AP181 as an intake (need to replace 200mm stock fan)?
2. Can we use a cable-ties on it or is it able to use screw on the mesh-hole?
3. Or maybe do you have any suggestion which is better?

PS: I already had one of each those Silverstone's fan for my old CM 690 II. But, if you have any other option, I will find another fan as substitute.

Thanks..

Yes. You can either drill holes for the AP181 or use zip ties. It will not be a direct fit to the screw holes for the crappy fans that come with the case.

Thanks for your quick reply.. One more question, if i'm about to mount one of those fans, is true that I will have to move the HDD Cage into next of my PSU? Because those Silverstone AP are 25 mm thick. Means I will only be able to mount 3 HDD?

No one has answered yet so I'll try again. To install a 240mm radiator on the top of the 600T you need to use it as a pull configuration, right?

Do pull configurations yield much worse temps in comparison to pull and push/pull?

it depends how you want to run your rad. the case was designed to have the top as exhaust so yeah that would make it pull. But if you were to stray from convention and make them intakes, they would be push over a 240. I would think the rad would perform better by a few degrees as intake, but that might force you to have side panel as exhaust. I have done this and it works fine if your watercooling. Guess it comes down to what type of vid card and how many if this could work for you.

Push pull would be nicer for noise levels but if you use high speed fans you can have the same performance.

You can mount more HDDs in the 5.25 bays, its an additional expense but the 3 into 4 cages they sell work well.

The rad needs to be mounted on the inside with the fans on top pulling or pushing(your preference). Or you can cut holes in the top for tubing to pass through, mount the rad on top and mount the fans inside.

ya theres a button, theres about 8 colours, or it will slowly change colours its pretty cool, cheap mod.

Sounds like an excellent piece of hardware for a sweet mod. Hook it into the RPM or heat sensor line on a fan controller and get the colours to change as the temps or RPM of a fan changes.

As Arte Johnson would say....Very Interesting...

Yes.

Questions like that just kill me. It's like asking if having four brakes on your car would help you stop faster. (yeah, I know I'm a grump) If you go back and read some of the thread you'll see all sorts of discussions on this very topic.

It would be great to have the discussions tracked and a table of contents generated for the first page with Topics listed and a corresponding page number. That would be a heck of a lotta work though.

1: No. This is a "medium airflow" case. If you want the best temps, you'll have to mod or get a different case.

2: Yes, but you'll have to make sure you don't overdraw the current rating of the built in fan controller. People have killed this fan controller doing that. The NZXT 200mm fans are great, but they will kill the fan controller and are thicker than the stock fans (requiring a mod). Others have found better fans at the correct thickness. If you're getting the white 600T SE case, the 200mm fans are better than they are in the 600T and may not require replacing at all. If you're getting the 600T, you can order the 600T SE fans from Corsair. I recommend an after market fan controller unless you're planning on just sticking with the three Corsair fans. On top of that, this fan controller isn't the greatest. Some people have reported a poor range of control using it.

8 fans? If you try to turn them down one day and they only run at 100% you'll know why. (Ask CeaserNYC).

Has anyone seen these:

http://www.memoryexpress.com/Products/PID-MX32074%28ME%29.aspx

I was thinking about a mod whereby one of these drives is installed above the top drive bay under the fan controller. I would have to cut a slot for the disc, and that's what's stopping me. I really have no idea how to cut a perfectly straight slot with no defects. I don't want to mar my case, but that would be a really cool mod. I love these types of drives that pull the DVD in without a tray, but I'm too afraid to bugger up my case.

You would have to use the center HDD rack only. However you could mount more where the cd drives are.

oh by the way, how are the audio jacks in the front of the corsair 600t? If anyone used an antec 900, man those were so atrocious that most people just avoided them completely.

I hooked them up to my soundcard when I had the case, and it sounded the same as if I had the headphones hooked directly up to the card. So basically, they sound fine.
