Hang on, sorry but i thought you always use the back as exhaust if u have an intake fan at the front??? That way, cold air comes in and goes out the back?? So you are saying we shid use front AND back as intake and soley use the top for exhaust?? Might try that out later idk if its better or not.

Because radiators perform better with intake fans. cool air coming in beats warm air going out. Because the rad is top rear, you'll already because exhausting warm air through the rad out of the case. Run front and top rear fans as intake with cooler, and the let the top fan deal with the warm air. Hot air rises after all.

This fall, I will be entering college, so why not have a $1400 rig for worddocs right? I think I did cable management decently for a first-time builder; or maybe the case did it for me, not sure. Well anyway, hope you like the pics as much as I do. Enjoy........

Lol, still waiting for the firmware to hit 2.0.......

Mods:

Blue status led's
3 blue 120mm's
corsair airflow de stickered

Thanks for looking

Pics
Blue LED mod on a 600T SE is amazing. Excellent choice!

If Corsair where to get the licensing I bet a Darth Vader 600T and a R2D2 600T SE would sell "like the dickens"

Corsair was at least at one point recommending to run the H70 as an intake, not sure if they still do. You will get better load temps, thats for sure. Downside is dust in the rad without a filter on the back fan, and you will need to have a decent fan set up on top to make sure you are exhausting all the extra heat out the top. I would use something like Speedfan or HWMonitor to see what your NB and CPU temps are like now, then swap the fan direction and see if you like changes. This is only if you don't have the side panel with the mesh and fans, I found with a fan right on top of the H60, there wasn't such a huge impact with Intake/Exhaust fan direction anymore.

I went ahead and modded the top mesh to fit my H60 on top near my 5.25 bays and put in a 120mm spare fan I had in the 5.25 to blow cool air towards my H60. I did it this way since the front mesh for the 5.25 bays have a built in dust filter and their easy to remove and clean. Doing this dropped temps with prime by 2c and temps by ~6c when my 570 is under load

very nice... will the H60 itself fit in the 5.25 bay? im positive it will if a DVD wasn't present but I'm unsure if it will with a DVD drive.

i decided to do some rearranging with my case as i got a seconf GTX 570 for cheap last night. i mounted my second HDD cage in the 5.25 bay and velcro'd my SSD over one of the cable holes. what do you guys think? i dont think theres much else i can do for now with my case

You should try it both ways and select the one that works best for your case and fan arrangement. I have my H70 exhausting because I don't like all the dust buildup when it's intake, and when I tested it I only got a 2c difference in temps.

If you decide to use it as intake I would personally recommend using a dust filter. I've seen these rads get almost completely plugged with dust.

Looks great bud. I like the H60 in there. Very nice.

It doesn't matter which way the rad is mounted. Lots of people do it this way including Redbeard at Corsair with his H70 build (I believe that's Corsair George).

Looks good. Nice job. I like how that cooler looks in your case. Good choice.

I tried it last night when I was modding the top mesh to install my H60 on top, and yeah, it does fit in the 5.25 bays without the DVD drive, but sadly I actually need my DVD drive I'll take some pics when I get done messing around with my case.

Your case looks awesome though. I agree with Mergatroid, that cooler looks awesome with the case.

Due to work and other reasons, I didn't get to finish building my rig last weekend. I made progress today and am about 80% done (just gotta reroute some cables).

I noticed something odd, though. If the case only has one firewire port, why do I see two firewire internal header cables??? Is this normal?

thanks guys. i am having some issues with how the 570HD dumps air into my case. i know the top card in dual configs always runs warmer, but it seems no matter what slot i have the 570hd it either suffocates itself or interferes with my reference 570.
the 570HD blows hot air horizontally in all directions. i wonder what kind of temps people get with sli 560TIs.

The 570hd is a big fail anyways. You should switch it out for another reference model.
