I guess add me to the club to, the picture is my case (dont have actual camera so appologies for crap quality
To take the front bezel off there are little plastic clips on the inside/front of the case that you push in. I think there are three per side. To take the HDD box thing off you just unscrew the few screws that are holding it on from the bottom.

You have to take the front panel off to get at those screws though right? Is it very hard to push those tabs in? I'm worried about it being a bit loose once it goes back in...

Dunno, flip the case upside down and check...if the front cover is over it, remove the front cover.

Well I was having a dilemma this morning. I was debating on if I should order the CPU, Cooler and case fans for my build or buy the monitor and memory while they are still in stock. Both, especially the memory has been either going out of stock or getting deactivated out right.

So I decided since they were in stock for once I would buy the memory and the monitor, it seemed like the smarter thing to do. Here is the memory and monitor that I ordered from NewEgg this morning.



Memory


Monitor

After this I still need to buy these parts....

AMD 1100T CPU
Corsair H80 Cooler
Xigmatek Purple Case Fans
HIS IceQ 6970 Graphics Cards

5 - If it's a quality 850W, yes. Unless you have a hilarious number of hard drives or a ridiculous overclock on the CPUs/GPUs.
6 - Up to you. You'll be able to get better performance with LGA 2011, but X58 and P67/Z68 chipsets are very solid right now and there's great performance you could have today, and not in a few months.
Thanks a lot for your help!
I just saw a nice review on the H80 and I think I'll go for it;
Just one question though: (remember I am a beginner) I was thinking that for the cpu cooling itself the h80 is clearly better than noctua d14 but (and here comes the question) is it right to think that maybe the air cooling solution like d14 will result in a better cooling throughout the whole case (so helping lowering the temps of other hardware as well?

also concerning PSU I'll buy modular corsair 850;

I was thinking at the MARS II in terms of gpu, not out yet though;

Thanks again

You can't get a more quality power supply then the Corsair AX line. I have the AX1200 from Corsair myself. Here is a link to the AX850....

Corsair AX850

And by the way the AX line of power supplies are 100% modular which is why I went with the one I have.

Quick question, I am getting the special edition case and regarding the fan controller on the front, I will be moving the upper 200mm fan and replacing it with 2x 120mm fans. Is it possible to hook both of those up to the fan controller? I heard somewhere you can connect up to 4 fans.
post #2538 of 18196
Yeah its got 4 connectors on it so its no problem, all though I dont feel the knob makes that much of a difference (with the stock 200mm fans atleast)

I got this straight from Corsair Support as I have the same case as you and wondered the same thing.

The built in fan controller in all the 600T's is 12 watts per channel and is 4 channels. For instance the Xigmatek fans I am going to use are just 2.4 watts. So I could out up to 4 fans per channel and only use 9.6 watts on one channel. As long as you do not exceed that 12 watts and leave a little breathing room on each channel. But you need to know how many watts your fan is. And to get that you multiply Volts and Amps and that should give you the wattage of the fan you are using. Also make sure you have a high quality power supply that has juice to spare. I am using 6 120mm and 1 200mm fans in my build using the fan controller. If you need any help figuring out the watts when you get your fans let me know and I will help.

Thank you both. I was planning on grabbing a couple Yate Loons high speed and they are only 3.6W each.
