I just coiled mine up and tied it off. I'm not going to deal with the cable management disaster of running it through the back of my case just to have a functioning port I don't even need.

Whenever I eventually get a usb 3.0 device I'll just buy a header adapter for my mobo and plug it in there...

I may look for that when it becomes an issue.

I just haven't found any of those types on a US retailer yet.



i haven't hooked my usb 3 at the front of the case yet, but since the CHV has that header ill be getting one of these. as of now i have no use for USB 3 i don't have any compatible devices. and the case has lots of usb 2.0 slots up front =D

I use them all the time. No problems. Just make sure there are no little kids around yanking on your cables...

Hey, just a quick comment. If you have a Dremel or even a hack saw you can still use both drive cages. I mounted an NZXT 200mm x 30mm fan in the front of my 600T and I am still using the forward drive bay.

There is a "curl" on the front side of the drive bay that will hit a 30mm thick fan. If you cut the curl off the fan will fit perfectly snug against the front hard drive bay. After cutting off the curl, I just used a piece of electrical tape to hide the cut (black paint or a permanent marker should do almost as well). You can't see it at all any more. Using this method, I was able to line the top two mounting holes up with two of the 600T mesh holes, and the hard drive cage is so snug against the bottom of the fan I didn't use any screws in the bottom at all.

Sorry, I thought I had a closeup picture of the NZXT fan installed, but all I have is a picture of the entire interior including the NZXT fan and the modified drive cage:

I can do a closeup pic if you want.

You bet. I actually bought a USB 3.0 card for a 3.0 external HDD I have so I wired it up. I ran the cable from front to back under a video card so you can't see it at all.

Edit: Changed NZXT 25mm to 30mm for accuracy. I have not tried a 25mm fan, but it should fit snug against the drive cage.

Whoa... this is what I'm waiting for. Mod the front fan without moving the HDD cages and we can still use aftermarket 200mm x 25mm. thumb.gifthumb.gif

Really appreciate if you can share the close-up pics. I'm sure there will be plenty of 600T user will need this information. cheers.gifcheers.gif

Yeah, a close-up pic of the fan at the bottom of the case next to the PSU would be nice. How have you mounted this?

I have just bought a Scythe Bay Rafter and mounted a 120mm fan to this and plan to 'velcro' this to the side box used to mount the HD cages.

I have also used velcro to mount 2 x 120mm viper fans to the front, pics will follow....
post #2257 of 18196
thats what I did. The adapter that came with my motherboard, I took it apart and place it in the back along with the other cable management. I have a functioning USB3.0.
I don't use it, but its all hooked up and ready. And still super clean in the back.
Thats why I love this case.


Although, I just discovered the Thermaltake Chaser MK-1
All I'm gonna say is damn.
It truly has everything that we would have liked the 600T to have had.
Aside from the filters at front and side, it also has nice 200x30 mm fans front and top.
You can put another one up top, can easily fit a push/pull radiator, and great cable management as well with the grommets.
Also full 3.0 USBs, not the single inside jack like what we have.
One thing I must say is that clearance in the back to fit cable is smaller than the 600T.
It also has a horrible baby blue accent. I would paint those red to go along with my black and red scheme from the inside.

Just a thought, and I definitely do not regret my 600T, I got plans for this baby.

Just some info for those interested.
I had a spare 120mm Akasa Amber knocking around so I decided to see what would happen if I suspended it from the optical drive bay so it was hanging where the top HDD cage would normally be.
My GPU load has went from 85'c to 76. Idle temps remain at 37'c. Case inlet temp was the same at 22'c. Probably helps the cool inlet air reach the GPU fan as its right in front of the card.

Here we go.

Closeup of the curl on a drive cage:

drivecagecurl.jpg

Close up of the cage with the curl removed and installed:

p7090005.jpg

This tells us two things: 1. My case needs cleaning and 2. The electrical tape is coming off. I think I'll just paint the edge. Lol, the NZXT fan moves so much air even at low settings that the electrical tape is stiff and came unstuck. BTW, you can see the LED mounting holes in the NZXT fan in this pic, and you can see the LED wire routing channel running from the holes down the spokes to the hub.

Here is the pic of where I mounted the top screws:

p7090008.jpg

The top two screws will line up no problem. I just didn't bother drilling holes for the bottom screws since the drive cage holds the bottom of the fan fairly tight.

bottomfan.jpg

To mount that fan, I cut a octagonal hole in the bottom of the case using a Dremel, drilled four screw holes, cut a notch in the fan so I wouldn't have to remove one of the drive cage mounts and mounted away. I used a dust filter on the bottom externally and on the top internally but removed the mesh from the top one.

Note. If you do this, you will have to ensure the front of the case overhangs your desk a little so there is a rout for air to reach the fan. I didn't realize this until after I did the mod. Lucky for me, the case has more depth than my desk anyway. If you don't do this you may have to drill some large holes in the side plastic feet/rails at the bottom of the case to allow air to reach the fan. Also remember to clean the bottom dust filter once in a while.

That's a really sweet build there man. That fan controller goes really well with this case. I like it.

It truly has everything that we would have liked the 600T to have had.

Really? I know cases are subjective, but...ew. I like the 600T because it's looks are conservative. That thing looks like it belongs in a kids room. Plus it's a full tower, not a mid tower. I'll just have to agree to disagree with you on that one. Personally I really like the Corsair 650D. Although it doesn't have the room at the top like the 600T has, man it's a sweet case.

I hate to toot my own horn (yeah, right...who am I kidding, we're all here to toot our horns) I have finished the mod/build for my old case. Everything except painting the patterns on the side panels. It turned out pretty well. Here is the link is anyone is interested:

http://www.overclock.net/small-form-factor-systems/1032334-modding-old-sweety-new-awesomeness.html#post13728920

Pics on page 1, 2 and 3. It turned out better than I thought it would, but not as good as I hoped it would. I guess painting is just not my thing. Lucky for me a buddy will be doing the side panels for me.

Don't get me wrong Mergatroid. I agree, Looks are horrible. If you recall, I never said it looked cool or anything, just inside design and layout. As you said, the 600T looks are conservative, which is why I really like it.
In truth also, It may be a fulltower, but really its almost the same size as the 600T (prolly because the 600T is a really big mid-tower haha)
