Anyone want to see an H50 vs H70 vs H60 vs H80 vs H100 direct comparison?

The profiles aren't a static fan speed like a fan controller would set, they're a range of fan speeds based on internal coolant temps.

Low - 900 RPM to 1300 RPM
Mid - 1300 RPM to 2000 RPM
High - 1600 RPM to 2600 RPM

If you want, you can use a standard aftermarket fan controller (like those built into some of our cases) and no harm, no foul. But if you think the idea was stupid, I'll take the blame.

I agree (not that you're in idiot, George!). I would find the profile that best suits my needs and stick to it. If I found myself in a situation where I was constantly switching profiles, the situation would probably call for me to have the side of my case off anyway.

Finally pulled the trigger and picked this case up over the weekend. I'll be retiring my old Coolermaster Stacker 830 for this and my new build. Finally got a chance to snap a quick picture of it tonight. Thought I would post to be officially added biggrin.gif.

Really makes me wish I would have waited and bought the white SE instead.

Too bad the 600 SE white did not enter to my country. Should I want to order from Europe or US, the total shipping + case price will cost as much as the price of Thermaltake Level 10 .. lol... I'm happy to have this 600T though..

To compudaze, do you have H50 vs H70 vs H60 vs H80 vs H100 direct comparison? Can you share us?

seems like this guy solved several heat issues, by turning his top 2 fans into intake fans, but i have no idea where all this air is exiting through ????/

I don't think you have to plug the H80 fans into the block/controller. You should be able to run them from a fan controller if you want to. Just look at plugging them into the block as an option. It's not so bad because each "profile" is actually a range of speeds, so you have three different ranges. If you overclock you'll likely be interested in the higher range. However, you can just use a regular fan controller if you like, or plug them into your main board using a splitter. Options are always nice.

What do you suggest of the top fan? Should I use 2x120mm fan as exhaust or intake?

PS: This plan made my friend keep begging to trade his Silverstone FT02 with my 600T .. LOL .. What do you think? Is it worth it?

Hmmm. I think you should experiment a little. There are lots of ways you could come up with for a positive pressure case. The fun in doing it is coming up with something you've designed yourself.

The positive pressure isn't just input RPM vs output RPM. You'll have to have a rough idea of how much air the fans will move. You want more pressure pushing into the case than pulling out. So, try and arrange the fans so that most of them are pushing air into the case. The front 200mm is 1, if you add one to the optical bays that's 2. If you're going to make the cpu cooler intake, that's effectively 3 intakes. You could have one large 200mm exhaust. That would give you less output than input for positive pressure. You may prefer two 120mm exhaust fans up top. Since you'll be using a fan controller you can go either way. The 120s might allow for better control, but the 200 would be fairly quiet.

As for the SilverStone case, it looks pretty nice. That style is not my personal cup of tea, but I can see how some people would really go for it. It's pretty different. I prefer the more standard design myself.

From the first page: "replaced them with one Noctua NF-S12B FLX at the back for exhaust and two of the same model at the top, as intake fans".

He has turned the case into positive pressure by converting the top into intake, but keeping the rear as exhaust. We are discussing something similar right now by regulating the exhaust flow out the top and converting the rear into an intake for a rad (H70).

imo 600t is a downgrade from a FT02 esp from a cooling stand point redface.gif

@ mergatroid

so all the air exits out through a single rear exhaust fan that has been upgraded to the noctua? sorry for the confusion

ty for the clarification though

CeaserNYC asked me to test out a fan placement at the backside of the CPU. I have placed a 120mm fan in the CPU backplate access hole blowing air onto the back of the board. At his suggestion, just for the test, I let the mess of cables hold the fan up while I closed the hatch.

I think the temps are pretty much what we would expect. While I was testing the ambient temp went up a degree. The test temps went up a degree as well. I don't think we're seeing much difference in temps by adding this fan.

Here's the pics:

Before adding the fan:

withoutrearcpufan20minu.jpg

After adding the fan:

withrearcpufan20minutes.jpg

The pics show not much of a difference at all. I was running Prime95 and Furmark for 20 minutes per test. All my case fans were cranked for both tests. The ambient temp for the first test was 24c while for the second it had increased to 25c. This may account (at least I hope it does) for the increase in cpu temps after adding the fan.

People who have a different arrangement of case fans may get a different result. Mods and better back cable routing may make this a viable option. Of course adding another mesh side panel and even mounting fans on it would take this option to the extreme.

Tomorrow I'm going to try adding a 120mm Fan over my drive bay as others have done and test my video card temps.
