It hasn't been released yet, but is supposed to be within a couple weeks. Here is the link for it: http://www.bitfenix.com/global/en/products/accessories/internal-usb3-adapter/

Here's one from FrozenCPU:

@Mikeyo, thanks buddy but longroadtrip has exactly what I'm looking for. Thanks.

I recently bought this so I'm just waiting for it to come.

@MarvinDessica - Which one are you looking at? I've heard the lian li has slow transfer speeds (not able to run at full usb 3.0 speeds) the bitfenix is supposed to be a really good solution.

The bitfenix. Although if you know any that would play better with my MB would be even better.

@MarvinDessica-
Check your motherboard. I just pulled up a picture of the MSI H61M P23 motherboard and didn't see a USB 3.0 header on it.

Oops..sorry, just saw the new MB you bought. You'll be fine. Has a USB 3.0 header on the bottom by the audio hookups.

The reason for this is, to avoid dust from coming into the case. I really love this case, but my colleague keep push me to trade my 600T with his Silverstone FT02 (I like the idea of positive pressure in FT02, but i don't really like it compare to my case)

Nice build, good job.

You will have to move more air going in than coming out. If you want this without modding you will need a better front intake fan.

When I was using my H70 as intake, and I had the NZXT fan as my front intake fan, my case was pretty much always positive pressure. The stock 600T fan doesn't quite achieve this. If you want to mount another fan in the front it will have to be 20mm thick. A 25mm thick fan requires a little modding. (if you go back three pages and start reading, we were talking about this very thing).

Now that my H70 is exhaust, I can still get positive pressure, however I have moded the bottom of the case for an extra intake fan, and it requires that I turn the front fan up and my two rear exhaust fans down (rears at 1000 RPM and front at about 1300RPM and my bottom intake fan at about 1000 RPM).

If you want positive pressure your intake fan will have to be replaced to get better intake pressure and flow. Also, I don't recommend using the Hydro coolers as intake anymore. There is no dust filter (unless you add one) and drawing in dust through the rad is just as bad as drawing it through elsewhere. I've seen some people almost completely clog up their rad with dust too. A good fan controller would help as you can control the speeds so there is more air entering than exhausting.

It's actually fairly average for an early adapter case. It's not the first time I've seen that solution that's for sure. Without it I wouldn't have USB 3.0 on the front of my case right now.

Nice build by the way!

Thanks for your suggestion, btw where can I get that Bitfenix USB header? Already in a webstore or somewhere?

PS: I'm planning to replace top and front fan though, pls feel free to join this discussion I started with Mergatroid below... smile.gif

Thanks to Megatroid, I already read and put in mind about your suggestion in our last discussion. I will have a work done in that "curl" on the HDD cage.
But, I need to know what combination of fan that I'm about to use in my case.

1. The H60 will be equipped with a filter (I have a Silverstone 120mm dust filter and will mount it with this H60). Should I use Gentle Typhoon (GT) AP-15 or lower in this matter?

2. As I watched your picture on the page 226, is it set as a positive pressure? I know your NZXT front fan and bottom fan act as intake. How about the rear and that H70 mount? Are they act as intake or exhaust?

Really appreciate your feedback.

PS: I mentioned Gentle Typhoon because I'm ordering them right now (5 AP-15) but if your suggestion suit this positive-pressure-wannabe, I can still make a change to the order, and switch the AP-15 into lower speed (AP-13 or AP-14). Thx... cheers.gif

The Bitfenix USB header doesn't seem to be available yet, but Bitfenix has said it will be available this month. They announced a 3.5" USB3 expansion bay at the same time as the USB header cables, and that just went on pre-order for sale on July 20th, make of that what you will.

I had an H70 with AP15s. The stock corsair fans and the AP15s perform about the same temperature wise at full RPM. There is a slight reduction in noise level at full RPM with the AP15s, but the big difference is the "sound profile". The stock Corsair fans were just annoying at full RPM, AP15s kind of drown out like white noise. If your 600T will not be in a climate controlled area I personally would stick with the AP15s just in case I needed the extra cooling capacity and would use a fan controller to spin them down when I needed less noise. If you don't want to use a fan controller and don't plan to OC, you could get away with AP13s (as intake) and still have manageable temps.

The new fans with H60, H80, and H100 will not be significantly outperformed by any aftermarket fan at the same RPMs. The noise levels are comparable as well, though as CesarNYC says, the audible pitch of the noise is completely subjective.

I'm using Gelid Silent 12 PWM fans on my H60 and they work great and are almost silent. Only 1500rpm fans but they throttle up and down automatically and I can't even tell when they are at max with my case closed up.

They're also white which fits my case perfectly (insert shameless excuse to post a pic)! biggrin.gif

I have to admit, I would pick a good PWM fan over AP15s if you had a mobo that could utilize them. I use 8 fans now and my mobo can control them based on temp(finally figured out how) and enjoy that feature the most.
