[Official] Corsair Graphite Club [780T/760T/730T/600T/380T/230T] - Page 257

Hello all!

I've just switched my new build over from an Antec 300 to the 600T SE in white, and what a difference it makes! I was getting frustrated with trying to get the cables looking tidy in the Antec 300 and realised I wasn't really getting anywhere, so I swapped out for the 600T. I'm amazed by the quality, thought the Antec 300 was well made but the 600T is on a whole new level. Cable management is so much easier in this case and I love the white LED fans.

The Corsair H80 fits perfectly at the rear (set up as intake). Was considering removing the top 200mm fan and mounting it there but my temps seem pretty good so far with it mounted at the back.

Here's some pics of my new build, let me know what you think smile.gif. Only thing I don't like too much at the moment is the wires showing at the bottom of the mobo for the front panel IO and power/reset switches. Maybe I will have to braid them.

Here is the back. Did what I could with cable management by using cable ties. Maybe some room for improvement if I spend a little longer on it I guess smile.gif

That is perplexing. The temps on your chipset correlate perfectly with the rise in ambient, so I don't think your measurements are off. So why do you think your +12V is so different between both tests. I have been told not to trust software readings but it might be indicative of something?

Another problem I had is my fittings (1/2ID 3/4OD compression) don't fit into my EK150 reservoir because they are so wide and the res has a lip on the bottom that blocks them from screwing in all the way, so have to order some spacers for that, sucks I wont be able to work on it this weekend now tho frown.gif
Good idea offsetting the rad, I wonder if there is enough space to make some type of duct from the rad to the 120s....I feel your pain about waiting on parts, I always seem to be short one elbow connector or adapter whenever I revamp my loop.

Speaking of which I know I have said I was going to post updated pics with the 480 but I just have gotten lazy. I am also still working on a few things, I got that new fan controller coming in today, I have to add a few hard drives, and I have another 6970 coming for some TrFire-ing. But pics are coming eventually.

Nice build! Mine's quite similar:

I highly recommend sleeved cables in this case. Just looks awesome!

I was thinking the same thing but then buy the time I do that the time and the materials it would take Id sooner just buy a rs240 or koolance slim rad I think, I guess Ill see how my temps are with this setup and go from there, was also thinking about taking the 5.25 bays and putting the rad at the front, but that also sounds like alot of work tongue.gif maybe later down the line if I add my 6950s into the loop Ill buy a slim rad for up top and try and get my EK240 rad on the front...

But I also want a 2500K + MB and a new power supply.... sheeesh what an expensive hobby

Thanks smile.gif. That build looks awesome with the sleeved cables!

Is it possible to buy them pre-sleeved or is it better to do them yourself? I guess pre-sleeved ones would have to run as extensions which would make cable management at the back a bit more difficult.

Mine are extensions. The 600T has plenty of room in the back to make it all fit.

Hi there once again,

Sorry to bother here I am to ask for somebody's help once again;
Will a pair of Asus 580 DIrect CU II fit in the case?

Thanks!

depends on your motherboard
physically the case will fit 2 Direct CU's
here's the spacing with 2 normal reference 580s for me, note how I have a expansion slot open after the 1st card. My 9600GT is right after the 2nd card, but anyway to answer your question yes you can fit 2 Tri-slot cooler GPUs

There's still 1 slot above the main PCI Express, and the last slot still open too for EATX boards.

Thank you very much!
COncerning motherboard I am thinking of Asrock fatal1ty which has same pcie layout of your asus so fine;
I was scared that a big PSU would have been made difficult for the second DIRECT CU II to fit properly;

Thanks again!!
