Is there any different feature or function on this Black 600T compare to the Graphite 600T?

This SKU has the mesh side panel only, not the clear window.

Otherwise it's identical to the normal 600T. Both are Graphite Grey and Black in color.

Oh okay. Will there be one with a window, or will you still have to buy it from Corsair?

Any modding required to mount the 480 square rad on the side panel, or did the holes line up well with the mesh panel?

Might go this route instead of the XSPC Rasa kit...do you think a 480 square rad would be enough for CPU/1xGPU, or would a 120mm/200mm rad be necessary as well? That would be a pretty clean loop with only the one rad, with decent performance, I would imagine...

First-timer on the forums here.

The wealth of information regarding this case is exceptional! I was resolute in getting this case after my 7-year old system just wasn't cutting it out anymore, so I am preparing for my 2nd build.

The case arrived last night and I was overwhelmed by its size. It is truly a stunning piece.

It took me three days, but I went through this entire thread for ideas/advice on anything I found pertinent to my soon-to-be-assembled setup.

I am moving from an Antec P180, a marvelous case in its own right. Though lacking in cable management, its cooling abilities, and even more so, its noise dampening potential, was what appealed to me the most.

With Corsair's 600T SE (2nd case I buy, and first windowed case), I expect to lose some of the noise control, but will try to tame it with dampening material and quiet fans.

My question is, is anyone interested in me building the rig standard (no sound dampening), run a few tests "by ear", and then apply the sound dampening material and run some more "by ear" tests? Or should I just go straight for the sound-dampened system from the get-go?

I have to admit I am wondering how heat dissipation will also be affected by the addition of noise-dampening material...

Would anyone find this helpful?

EDIT: I am moving from an Athlon X2 3800+ to a i5-2500k system... lol

Out of curiosity I would love to see you do that, but I personally have never been bothered by fan noise. Heck I even considered putting high end Delta fans throughout my case, and those sound like an F16 taking off.

So let's start with the assumption you want about 240mm of rad per over clocked component. Then add another 120mm for the chipset, HDD, and ram. You could do less but it would hurt your over clock.

The 200mm rad is almost as good as a 360mm rad, should be good enough for your GPU and everything else besides the CPU. So now all we need is another 240mm right, maybe we don't need the 120mm? This is where it gets tricky.

It's easy to do push pull on the 200mm rad if you delete the HDD cages, but very hard to pull off anywhere else. Also a high performance 240rad don't fit in this case up top. A slim rad with push or pull only, fits. But it's a compromise, and you will need to go with a decent 120rad in the top/rear to compensate. Of course this will have to be push or pull only again, because it's tight up top. This is assuming You don't want to mount the fans outside of the case, but it won't look pretty.

I did this set up and I was not happy with it. Might work for you since you only have one GPU, but you will be at the ceiling of your cooling capacity. Make sure you pick up some quiet fans, no point in water-cooling if you aren't running quieter then air cooling. I didn't see your choice on a reservoir either.

I needed more so I made some changes, namely removing the underperformer 240 slim rad, went push/pull on the 120mm rad, and added the phobya 480 square rad onto the side panel. Not a new idea, but I hadn't seen it executed as cleanly as I would have liked. I think I pulled it off, I will post pics eventually.
I have 1 120, 240 slim and the 240m rad in my system, i have to upload new pics

My Problem is,...
If i use all this thing, fit the 13/10 tubing in the case or i have to take a smaller tubing? now i use 10/8
2. i want to upload some pics with ideas, for better convesations

thanks for your help

Using regular dampening, like dynamat for auto, will absorb and retain heat, probably raising case temps 2-3c. You'll want to use a kit with a thin layer of foil material bonded to it to deflect hot air. A few pieces on each side panel would probably reduce a good amount of vibration.

Relocating the HDD cages is all I did to make it fit. You can also modify the hard drive cage, I know thats what some else did to make it fit, but I like the HDDs in the 5.25 bays. A 480 should be just what you need for one CPU and one GPU. Everything bolts on simple enough, what requires finesse is routing the tubing without compromising access. I have it rigged up with quick disconnects and tube fittings that pivot but I think I am going to try a few other solutions before I decide which is best.

Good move looking over the entire thread. A noise level comparison would be welcomed. I don't know if you are inclined to cut up your case but removing grate in front of the 200mm is supposed to reduce turbulence noise, I have always wanted a more subjective account If you could tie that into your testing with sound dampening, or even make a little guide on how to ninja a 600T, that would be awesome. I think you are going to need decibel meter to make this legit. I have one I can loan out.......

Green looks really nice. I am slowly warming to the idea of putting some lights in the case, I found some PWM red LED fans that have switches to shut off the light...........

I use 16/13 Koolance tubing, the bending radius is decent, much better then Tygon clear tubing I began with. I don't know if you already bought the fittings or tubing and are locked into a specific diameter but I hear Primo Chill Pro Flex is wonderful stuff and can bend in tight places. I guess I will have a better idea of what you are trying to do when I see some pics.
